Still Eating Organic
I was disappointed about the blurb I heard about organic food on the Today Show yesterday They brought many of the facts to the table, but their choice was to say that organic food was found to be no less healthy. They didn't describe what less healthy means in the study. Are they only going by nutrition? They also brought up that the studies analyzed were only done over a span of less than two years. This does not help us to understand what effects a lifetime of consuming pesticides does. They did say that organic foods are 30% less likely to have pesticide residue. For me that is the most important thing. I will continue to eat organic and feed my family organic as much as possible.
What do you think? Do you use any organic foods? Which foods do you buy organic?
