Recently, Zester Daily published an opinion piece by Tanya Denckla Cobb, who is the Associate Director at the Institute for Environmental Negotiation, professor in the Urban and Environmental Planning Department, and steering committee member of the UVa Food Collaborative. In her piece she critiques Dr. Mehmet Oz's article, "What to Eat Now: The Anti-Food Snob Diet," published in Time magazine last year. According to Dr. Oz, "organic is great, it's just not very democratic." More and more studies, however, are showing that sales of organic foods is growing at retailers like Wal-Mart, and that farmers market produce can actually be less expensive.
