Myth Busters: Organic Eating

The influence of organic eating might not be as popular as it was in the past, but many people are still under the influence that eating organic foods is better for you. This stems from the belief that organic products are completely free from any added chemicals or pesticides or growth hormone and are therefore 100% natural. Little do they know that this is not true. First, most organic products come from the same farms as non-organic products, and as a result are not 100% chemical free. Secondly, after years of scrutiny most scientists have concluded that GMOs are safe to consume, and therefore should not be avoided. Studies also show that organic products do not carry any different or superior nutritional profiles from their non-organic counterparts. Finally, in comparison to non organic products, organic products are priced at least 20% higher. Next time you go to the grocery store, focus more on the foods you are consuming and less about the ways they were harvested. Save your money, eating healthy does not have to be expensive
