There is no difference in nutritive value between organically grown food and food grown with the aid of chemical fertilizers and chemical pesticides. This has been known for many years by nutritional and soil scientists and is based on thorough research. Fertilization, regardless of the type, does not influence the nutrient composition of the plant with regard to its content of protein, fat, carbohydrate, or the various vitamins; these nutrients are influenced primarily by the genetic composition of the seed and the maturity of the plant at the time of harvest.
The following items of diet have all been found to cause "health problems" in various health surveys: tea, coffee, milk, water, orange juice, apple juice, sugar, butter, margarine, bread, bran, bacon, salt, wine, beer, eggs, beef, pork, lamb, chicken, sausages, potatoes and chocolate. It can be assumed that surveys will eventually find a health risk in all known foods.
