I'm sorry to disagree with HJOSEPH.
I've just read it again and find nothing wrong with what David Leaonard wrote.
HJOSEPH please let us know what is wrong in his excellent summary which was in understandable English and what I have read in other publications.
British research has just found that carotine as in carrots and broccoli reduces cancer and there is twice as carotine in organic carrots as in NPK ones.
On Sanet we should think and give solutions not negatives.
As a farm adviser I know that if we wait for science to catch up with what the best and most observant farmers find, we wait 10 to 20 years.
And it is not published to the ordinary person because the media won't without being paid, unless it kills someone!
Keep it up David.
