A friend brought my attention to a study today noting that organic foods may not be any healthier than their conventional counterparts. Not only was the study subject pool small, it was a ridiculous study! The point of buying food organic is not the promise of un-limited nutrient composition, but that your food won’t be laden with nasty cancer-causing chemicals! Eat organic to fore-go pesticides in your food, soil and water supply!
The USDA and Environmental Working Group agree these should always top your organic shopping list… With summer on it’s way, take advantage of your local organic strawberries, grapes, peaches, raspberries, apples, nectarines, pears, cherries, limes, bananas, kiwis, pineapples, cantaloupe, tomatoes, spinach, potatoes, corn, green beans, and carrots.
