If you buy organic fruits and vegetables, you know they often cost more than conventionally-grown produce. But, is it worth it?
Stanford University researchers looked at data from hundreds of previous studies. They found there's practically no nutritional difference between organically and non-organically grown produce.
But, if you consider the use of pesticides, there's a big difference.
The study found organic fruits and veggies had a 30% lower risk of pesticide contamination than
non-organic produce. However, no studies found specifically that pesticides at
non-organic levels cause harm.
