Organics / NPR

2 stories this week about a Stanford study about organic food (focusing on finding no difference between the nutrition of organic and conventional produce) really had me disappointed, yelling at the radio that that isn't why we we grow & buy organic food! Finally in the friday night all things considered a reporter in Portland (of course) did a piece about why people buy organics that had me nodding along. Jeez, if NPR can't cover the issue well what is the chance that more standard media outlets will -- and that people might hear something that brings them over to our side?

Update: Bittman has a bunch of links about the distortions in the Stanford study
