BENEFITING: Rodale Institute

THE STORY:

Rodale Institute is looking for your support!  This campaign will fund research comparing the nutrient density of organically and conventionally grown produce.  But, we can’t do it without the backing of our friends and supporters!

Last year’s report out of Stanford University called into question the health benefits associated with organic and conventional foods.  While this study revealed health benefits associated with eating organic foods we believe that more research needs to be completed to truly see how organic and conventional foods stack up.

The Institute’s Farming Systems Trial (FST) has side-by-side research fields that have been managed organically and conventionally for more than 30 years - the perfect location for a sound nutritional study. FST provides an excellent field laboratory to address the impact of growing methods on nutrient density because the crops are all grown in the same soil, processed in the same manner, and can be tested the same number of days after harvest. Utilizing this unique field “laboratory” resource, Rodale Institute believes that we can put skeptics to rest once and for all.

Please make a gift of $10, $15, $25 – as much as you can afford. We promise you that your contribution will help to help to improve the health and well being of people and the planet.
