Revisited: Eating Organic, is it Safer and More Nutritious?

Several weeks ago I blogged about a paper about organic food published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. In brief, the study's authors concluded that the published, peer reviewed literature lacks strong evidence that organic foods are significantly more nutritious than conventional foods.

This study has received much attention and criticism, as best summarized by Mark Bittman's (NY Times Food Columnist) recent opinion article. Many feel that the study is misguided and that its conclusions are misleading.  This counterpoint is worth a read and has valuable hyperlinks.
