Are there health benefits in eating organically grown food?

In January Peter Melchett of the Soil Association reported two studies which indicate some health benefits of organic food for children and mothers giving birth. Here's what he wrote.
"A Dutch study comparing mothers and children who drank organic milk and used organic dairy products with those that did not, found that those children suffered 36% less eczema than children on a non-organic diet. More recently, a Norwegian study has linked organic vegetable consumption to a 24% lower incidence of pre-eclampsia, a major cause of illness in mothers and deaths of babies worldwide. But while it is clear is that the way we farm does affect the quality of our food, the jury is still out on whether eating organic food will lead to people suffering less illness or disease over their lifetime."
Chapter 15 of my book, 'Twenty-First Century Nutrition and Family Health', summarizes the evidence in support of eating organically grown food.
