Here are some interesting arguments discussed in the article:

“No conclusive evidence shows that organic food is more nutritious than is conventionally grown food.”

“It’s no surprise that organic, local eating is the biggest food trend of our time. Everyone knows the way we eat is bad for us. Fast food is unhealthy, even evil (to say nothing of low status). Big Agri-Food has a lot to answer for. And besides, “pesticide” sounds awful. Modern living has so disconnected us from our food that some city folks are actually surprised to see real apples growing on real trees.”

“It’s time for us to rethink our food, no doubt about it.”

“But let’s face facts. Artisanal food is too expensive for a lot of folks, including the folks who grow it.”

“’Sustainable’ farming may be fine for sustaining a few rich consumers but not for a hungry planet.”
