Naturally occurring pathogens in Organics versus Chemical Preservatives in Supermarket food


Posted by leftblank

I'd like to know more about the relative risks of naturally-occuring pathogens in Oraganic-foods versus the chemical preservatives in Supermarket food.

For example, there is a possible naturally-occuring toxin in naturally-ground Peanut Butter that may not be found in Supermarket Peanut Butter.  (Although there was a massive Supermarket recall of Peanut Butter recently).

While not relevant for peanut butter unless you're grinding it yourself, generally speaking if you wash organic produce in a sound fruit and veggie rinse you are much safer than you would be consuming pesticides - most of which are neurotoxins.
