Public concerns for health and the environment, resulting from the impacts of chemicals in both plant and animal production, has led to an increased demand for organic produce. It is often perceived and usually promoted as containing fewer contaminants, more nutrients and being positive for the environment.
"It is an interesting and timely snapshot of our understanding of these issues with well-written articles from respected authors in many areas relevant to human health ranging from the effect of n-3 fatty acids to dietary flavonoids to selenium to contaminants in foods. Although the book is necessarily limited by the set-up of the original workshop, the choice of authors and the breadth of topics explored are excellent."--Experimental Agriculture
