Should you buy organic? Is it worth the extra premium you pay? If you have the option experts suggest organic produce is healthier, cleaner, and more nutrient packed. I have to say I am “healthily skeptical” of the health claims that some suggest.
Something that I do clearly see is that non-organic produce have a signicantly higher amount of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that sometimes cannot be washed away. Here is a list of the dirtiest and cleanest produce. I would try to get the ‘dirtiest’ from organic sources. It surprised me that celery was on this list!(source: www.ewg.org/foodnews/summary/)
Until next time…
