"The study does make sense as far as no difference in the nutritional content however majority of people opt for organic food over conventional because of lack of pesticides, antibiotics and various other additives in the organic foods."
There are indeed pesticides that are certified for use in "organic" farming. I have some of them in my shed for garden use. There is a common belief that organic equals chemical-free, and that simply is not the case.

Exactly correct, see my post #12...in fact there have been several studies that show that some organic food had more residual pesticides and bacteria than conventionally grown food...as I mentioned, sulfur ( which can be a dangerous chemical and some people are allergic to sulphates), can be used on organic crops.
