organic food is healthier--who knew?

Picked this up off of Consumerist... Apparently organic tomatoes are healthier than "conventional" tomatoes. This should surprise no one; the real surprise should be that we even need to investigate such things. It's like investigating whether machine cut "baby" carrots have as many nutrients as carrots pulled fresh from the soil. It's like investigating the nose on our collective face. Sheesh.

I'll probably dive into writing heavily about Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma when I get closer to finishing it, but suffice it to say that this really isn't a surprise.
