One of the most common debates among “foodies” is whether you should buy organically produced foods or just stick with conventionally produced food. In my opinion, there is not a whole lot of difference, and it becomes a personal choice when you know the facts.
Bottom Line: Both have their advantages and it is also important when reading about this topic that we recognize the bias promoted by both sides. This article appears to take an independent approach and may help clear up some misinformation that is needed in order to make informed choices.
There are some concerns. Personally I always felt that organic is better for children due to the differences in pesticide use. Also, the recent debate about the widely used herbicide safety (e.g. Roundup containing glyphosate) gives rise to some other issues that have yet to be resolved. So with this in mind and until there is enough independent research, in my opinion, organic may have a slight positive edge on pesticide and environmental issues. However, the important thing is to not fear fruits and vegetables but include them abundantly in your diet whether they are grown conventionally or organically. Both are a nutritious boost for your health.
However, It is blatantly apparent that there are many diverse opinions of the American grower and consumer on this highly controversial topic. Another important factor is often the higher cost of organically grown foods but based on all the facts, the choice is up to you.
