Maybe: A series of studies showed organic milk had healthier fats than conventional milk (more omega 3s, for instance), that the breast milk of women who drank organic had even healthier fat profile than those who drank conventional, & and that the babies born to women who drank organic during pregnancy & nursing had far less eczema. Genetics sets susceptibility, but there are also environmental triggers.
