All that sustainability, good for the planet:
It has a reputation for being better for us and the environment, but new research suggests organic food may actually be harming the planet.
Scientists have found that rather than reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released, organic farming may actually be increasing them.
They found the shift to large scale organic farming in order to meet growing demand for organic products in shops has led to an increase in emissions for each acre of land.
And given that organic is less productive, that means that more land needs to be farmed with those higher emissions, too.
