Study Claims Organic Is Not More Nutritious
Do you buy organic? If so, why? A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine by Stanford University researchers may change your mind about eating organic.
The study found that fruits and vegetables labeled organic were, on average, no more nutritious than conventional fruits and vegetables. Organic fruits and vegetables were not any less likely to be contaminated by dangerous bacteria like E. coli. And, there were no obvious health advantages to organic meats.
Best Food Facts has looked at organic vs. conventional food in the past, and our experts have agreed with this latest study. Dr. Carl Winter and Dr. Francisco Diez answered True? or Not? in regards to organic food, and Dr. Ruth MacDonald looked at the nutritional differences.
