This looks like a huge exercise in missing the point.

I've never heard of anyone choosing organic because they thought it had nigher nutrient content. I've always heard concerns about traces of endocrine-disrupting chemicals and pesticides which could have very long-term effects on metabolism and/or reproduction. EDCs, since they mimic messengers in the body that turn metabolic processes on and off, can act at tiny concentrations, contrary to the notion of a toxic threshold.
