Last year, I wrote about a groundbreaking study from Washington State University that said that organic strawberries have higher antioxidant activity and concentrations of ascorbic acid than conventional strawberries.

This research was the subject of much conversation in the organic industry because now we could point to objective, independent research that validated the superiority of organic.

In a study performed at the University of Barcelona Science and Technology Centres and reported in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, ketchup made from organic tomatoes proved to have higher levels of polyphenols than ketchup made from conventional tomatoes. (Polyphenols are biomolecules with antioxidant properties and protective effects in the human body.) Read more »

If you’ve been following my blog over the past few months, you know that the Right2Know March is taking place right now.

I was there for the kick-off, which started on October 1st in NYC and ends this Sunday in Washington, and I’ll be there for the finale as well.

The objective of the Right2Know March is to demand that our government label genetically-modified food.

More than 30 countries around the world label their genetically-modified food because they know that it is inherently different from non-genetically-modified and poses real health risks.

As Americans, we have the right to know what is in our food. Read more »
