I love this article and the simple experiments done by this great kid in middle school. This is certainly not the last word on the ongoing controversy about the health differences of organic food vs conventionally-grown food, but her results are certainly intriguing. I know the methodology of this study will be criticized but for now, on my next shopping trip, I am more likely to reach for the organic version, just in case she may be right. I know about the Stanford meta-analysis study that states there are no nutritional differences between organic vs. non-organic and will more than likely invalidate her conclusion, but it was fun and refreshing to read about this young girl and her interest in science.
Here is the study.
Here is the skeptical side.
