It seems the jury is still out on whether to go organic or not. Now studies are showing that organic produce may not have more nutritional value than its non-organic counterparts. And now organic doesn’t seem to matter as much. I would absolutely disagree. Organic is still the best option. And for a very good reason. Many non-organic fruits and vegetables get all sorts of chemicals (think pesticides) sprayed on them. Organic does not.
Think about that juicy apple you sink your teeth into. It looks great but there is more to it than what meets the eye. Apples from Argentina for example can easily have at least 7 different chemicals on them. What can that do? In Spain immigrant farm workers that come into heavy contact with pesticides daily are experiencing serious health issues. Some of them are even having issues with infertility. It all adds up. Even if you are not getting the same quantities as these workers you are still accumulating a good amount of pesticides into your body when you eat regular produce. I say go organic.
