Hi folks! I have a friend who was recently telling me that, according to her boyfriend (who works on a farm that I guess produces both organic and non-organic produce; I didn’t realize there were farms that did both?), organic pesticides are not any safer than those used in conventional farming.

I tend to disagree and would love some sources to cite. My friend and I both studied biology in university so peer-reviewed journal articles and other materials with all the scientific jargon still intact are both welcome and encouraged.

Thanks in advance!

Has your view/confidence in the USDA Organic certification changed over the past 5 years? If so, than in what way? More, Less, Same confidence in USDA Organic? Has the average consumer perception changed at all? What is the future of the USDA Organic cert?
