Junkscience.com Uses Contest to Spur 'Organic Food' Debate

Share this article:
Junkscience.com, Washington, yesterday launched its "Organic Is Just Marketing" sweepstakes.


The Web site is seeking to provide information and create a debate about the U.S. Department of Agriculture's rules concerning the labeling of organically grown foods.


To enter, Junkscience.com site visitors must e-mail their opinion to the Agriculture Department about whether there should be a USDA seal for "organic foods." Opinions can be positive or negative.


Public opinion surveys indicate that a seal would convey a sense of food quality, safety, nutrition or environmental benefit over other foods, but Junkscience argues there is no scientific evidence to support that claim.


The contest winner will receive $1,000.
