Despite repeated activist (and organic industry) claims to the contrary, consumers of organic food are wasting their money if they think they’re buying something which is safer or more nutritious than conventionally grown food, says Britain’s leading food expert. Sir John Krebs, chairman of the Food Standards Agency (roughly the British equivalent of FDA) says consumers are “not getting value for money, in my opinion and in the opinion of the Food Standards Agency, if they think they’re buying food with extra nutritional quality or extra safety. We don’t have the evidence to support those claims.”
