Which Foods to Buy Organic and Why

Posted Sep 04 2012 6:50pm

The Annals of Internal Medicine report on the nutritional value of organics is being misinterpreted as “organics have no benefits.

That’s not what this study of studies showed (and no authors reported a conflict of interest, though their individual funding is not listed: bias exists in scientific publications too).

The report from Stanford showed that organic foods reduce “consumers’ exposure to pesticide residues and to bacteria-resistant to antibiotics.”  Not to mention boosting omega-3s and phenol (antioxidant) content…the up side.

If those are not health benefits, I don’t know one when I see one. I do know lots of people who would rather go to the grocery store or farmer’s market than the doctor.

Here’s what I told Guideposts Magazine several years ago on which foods to buy organic: it’s less than a minute, but makes the points clearly. Do you think I got it right?
