Fact vs Fiction: Organic Benefits

The organic produce market in the United States has grown quickly, up 12 percent last year, to $12.4 billion, compared with 2010, according to the Organic Trade Association. Organic meat has a smaller share of the American market, at $538 million last year, the trade group said.

Reports on "The Stamford Univ study" that I have read have done nothing to document the seeds used (heirloom, hybrid, GMO) nor the farm size (small, medium, mega) - both factors - in my opinion - that contribute greatly to the quality of the end results for fruits and vegetables.
