DISPELLING ORGANIC RUMOURS

We dispel the rumour that claim organic food is no healthier than conventional ones.

One particular scientific study posted online has claimed that organic foods are no healthier than conventional foods. This study has sparked off a string of debates online.

NaturalNews has found out that one of the key co-authors of the study, Dr. Ingram Olkin, has a deep history as an “anti-science” propagandist working for Big Tobacco – a tobacco corporation in the United States. Stanford University has also been found to have deep financial ties to Cargill, a powerful proponent of genetically engineered foods and an enemy of the GMO labeling Proposition 37.

Dr. Ingram Olkin worked with Stanford University to develop a “multivariate” statistical algorithm, which is essentially a way to lie with statistics. This formula is used by Big Tobacco to claim that smoking is not dangerous for your health and is perfectly safe.

Olkin’s newest research fails to address any real factors in the difference between conventional GMO-loaded food and organic. Due to records of him feeding false information to the public, Olkin’s latest research does not prove any point that organic food is no better than conventional ones.

This can also be a lesson to all: do not trust everything that that is ‘fed’ to us. Take ‘news’ with a pinch of salt and do not believe every study or research so readily. Do your own research before choosing what to believe in.
