There is no evidence organic food is better than food grown conventionally, minister David Miliband has said.
The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said organic food was more of a "lifestyle choice that people can make".

He insisted that food grown with the use of pesticides and other chemicals should not be regarded as inferior.

In an interview with the Sunday Times he said: "There isn't any conclusive evidence either way."


Mr Miliband: "It's only 4% of total farm produce, not 40%, and I would not want to say that 96% of our farm produce is inferior because it's not organic."

He said despite the rise in organic sales being "exciting" for shoppers, they should not think of conventionally-produced food as "second best".



Not one single mention of how the environment benefits from increased bio-diversity. Not one mention of farming pollution. And he's Secretary of State for the Environment.

His job title should be changed to "Secretary of State for sucking off the farming lobby". The man is a whore and a shill.

And likely to be the next Deputy Prime Minister... :(

Organic food tastes infinitely better and is a hell of a lot better for the environment. He should be ashamed of himself.
