Really, Stanford?

There is a newly identified form of malnutrition called IFS: Intentional Food Stupidity. It’s caused by a deficiency of survival instinct. Apparently, Stanford U has it bad.

Pardon my snark, but it irks me that the “science” from Stanford reported in September 2012 wants to convince us that the only benefit of organic food is the lack of poison used to grow it. Meanwhile, real science has many times over demonstrated how living, healthy soil results in nutrition-dense food. See, for example, the study described here or this historic piece by renowned soil scientist Dr. William Albrecht.
