USDA Orders Audit of National Organic Program

In the wake of the economic downturn, not only has the organics industry lost a significant share of customers, but it's has ordered an audit of its National Organic Program (NOP), the organization that sets standards for organic products in America. The review, to be performed by the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology, will examine whether the program is using internationally recognized standards for overseeing its network of almost 100 private certifiers, all of which have authority to determine whether foods meet federal organic standards.

Will an audit of the National Organic Program put questions about organic standards to rest? Do organic foods have a higher nutritional content than their conventional counterparts?

I buy organic products to limit my family's exposure to pesticides and the like. I don't know anyone who thinks that organic foods have higher nutritional value. :?

Yes people don't buy this stuff for the nutrition but for what's NOT going into it.
