Kimmie: Is organic food healthier for you? That’s what it seems like.
Megan: Organic foods are healthier for the planet because pesticides and possible harmful to the environment fertilizers are being used agriculturally. Those substances could be found in possible traces on the foods that you are eating. However, in terms of nutrients, there aren’t necessarily more or better nutrients in organic foods versus normal. Putting more natural foods in our bodies is of course the best route, but when we look at the a nutrients of an apple per se, an organic apple doesn’t have more nutrients, rather, probably it has less substances that are foreign to our bodies in traces that might not be toxic but aren’t that great for us in the long run.
