Dr. Joseph Murphy, a former food chemist and University of Pittsburgh Diet Study participant will be discussing such subjects as: What does the word “Organic” really mean? How is it regulated? Is organic food more nutritious? Is it worth the extra cost? What is “organic farming?" What is “natural food?"

Organic Food in all its facets will be discussed as well as how the word “Organic” applies to non-food items.  After the presentation, there will be an extensive question and answer period where Dr. Murphy will answer all queries dealing with the subject.
