British newspapers are unfailingly interesting. This morning’s Daily Telegraph carries a commentary by Rose Prince about the benefits of organics. She provides an interesting take on the politics of this report (see previous post) and of the organic movement in general, along with this thought:
It is a pity that the focus has been on nutrition. All food is nutritious; having no food is what kills. The wider benefits of organic foods are still worth pursuing. It is what food does not contain and the effects that it does not have that really matter.
