Science Review: Are Organic Foods Healthier?

Michael Greger, MD has a full-time job during the day, but at night he reviews medical studies and creates videos to help explain his findings to those of us who do not have medical backgrounds on his site NutritionalFacts.org. Here's one video where he discusses the facts around organic vs. "conventional" food based on the current research available to the public. My takeaway was that eating more plants in general is helpful for optimal health. If you can afford organic it may help you avoid cancer, but that's not a definite. Watch it and decide if you hear something else in his analysis. What's important is that you are knowledgeable about what you put into your body. Wishing you the best of health!
