Organic health

It is reported that organic food is more nutritious than conventionally produced food. I think that's inaccurate. Instead, the report should say that conventionally (intensively) produced food is less nutritious than other food. My home-grown vegetables aren't organic. I'll bet they have similar levels of nutrients in them, though.

Supermarket tomatoes taste like tap water, the ones from my garden this summer were bursting with flavour. Where's the surprise if nutrient levels match? But this has nothing to do with the High Priests of the Soil Association.
