The choices we make every day about our food are varied, complex, and challenging. GMOs? High-fructose corn syrup? Workers' rights? Farm subsidies? Hydrogenated fats? There are thousands of factors that we could consider in making just one food purchase, but most of us can't judge that many variables. So we rely instead on shortcuts, looking for quick ways to make the best choices for our health.
One of those shortcuts many of us use is organic food. If we buy organic produce it's probably better, right? (Remember the Dirty Dozen?) Well, I appreciate writing and research that can dig deeper into the facts and real data, and I just read a really fascinating article about organic produce.
