Coming up: Amanda Maxham on The Good, the Bad and the Organic Food
Concern about the safety, value and production of food is prompting a growing number of shoppers to fill their grocery store carts with food labeled “organic.” But despite a reputation as the “Cadillac of foods,” organic foods aren’t healthier, safer or better than their conventional counterparts. The growing popularity of organic is rooted in consumers’ belief that when it comes to food, “natural is better.”
In her talk “The Good, the Bad and the Organic Food,” ARI research associate Amanda Maxham argues that the organic label represents the wrong approach to food entirely.
