Organic vs. Conventional (Non-GMO)

Great article in NPR about food marketers trading customers down from Organic to Non-GMO.

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2014/02/28/283460420/why-the-non-gmo-label-is-organic-s-frenemy

Equating the health benefits of Non-GMO with Organics is enticing to food producers and sellers. Non-GMO food products, produced with conventionally grown produce and grains, replete with chemical pesticides, chemical herbicides and chemical fertilizers, similar in every way to conventional grown except  genetic modification, is cheaper than organics. But it is not the ecological or nutritional or sustainable equivalent.
