(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TX) The Consumer Team today announced that a new investigative series on the organic food industry will start airing in November of 2015. Consumer Team host Pete Thomson, commented on the series. He stated, “The Consumer Team will air a series of segments aimed at educating consumers regarding organic foods. Recently, serious charges have been made regarding the integrity of organic food. Our series will help consumers to truly understand the issues involving organic food and to make more informed shopping decisions.”
Several recent investigations have disparaged the organic food industry, including Dr. Henry I Miller’s recent article in Forbes, The Colossal Hoax of Organic Agriculture. Thomson voiced several concerns regarding organic foods. He said, “Consumers pay a huge premium for food that is labeled as organic. Recent research and studies, including Dr. Miller’s article in Forbes, are challenging the integrity of the organic industry. On The Consumer Team we want to weigh the evidence objectively and help consumers understand the truth.”
Thomson said that a thorough understanding of the role of pesticides in organic food will be essential to understanding both the benefits and safety issues surrounding organic foods. He added, “The pesticide discussion is the part of the organic discussion that people are finding both educational and concerning. People are generally surprised to learn that pesticide free doesn’t necessarily mean food more healthy.”
The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is broadcast Saturdays from 5-7 PM (Central) on 1080 KRLD Radio. The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media Inc in Dallas, Texas.
