Cynthia Curl was quoted in a New York Times article titled “These Goldfish Are 70 Percent Organic.” In the article Curl noted that when we eat organically, we reduce our pesticide exposure. “Observational studies, while not conclusive, are consistent with the idea that there may be health benefits from reducing pesticide exposure, particularly during pregnancy. But the science simply isn’t there to say for sure,” she said.
