That "organic milk is the same as regular milk" story you read was actually bogus

Jenny Mcarthyism has come to Canada in the form of a news story that you might have read earlier this week.

In it the authors laid out the case that organic milk supposedly has no more nutrients than regular, cheaper milk.

A professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto and an author of multiple books about food teamed up to debunk it.

Richard Bazinet and Mark Schatzker's piece for The Globe and Mail goes straight to work in taking apart Trevor Howell and Emma McIntosh's silly "investigation" into organic milk versus regular milk.

As it turns out the original story's sample size consisted of two bags of milk; one organic and one non-organic. The co-authors for the Globe did their own tests and added actual science knowledge to the conversation, shining a light on the fact that organic milk actually is what it claims to be.

They note that "The world is awash in ridiculous health claims and bogus products. Declaring the experts are all wrong can be satisfying. The zeal of organic milk enthusiasts, furthermore, can be excessive and annoying. Organic milk, however, is one of the few food products in the supermarket where the label is matched by differences both in farming and nutritional content."

Read the piece in its entirety HERE and in the next few years when the organic milk issue comes up at the breakfast table, instead of arguing with Jenny just txt her the link.
