Conscientious Cook: Top Ten Organic Myths – Part II

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Part II of the series at A Fresh Squeeze on organic myths is up. We talked about Part I last week.

This week more of the complications and challenges in buying organic are implicit in their highlighted myths. Organic automatically means healthy, right? Wrong. Organic automatically means local/sustainable, correct? Well, no. That question is still at the center of a fierce debate over organic versus local farming and whether the federal standards of organic produce are too tight or too loose. As much as we want to always buy organic, it’s not a one-stop answer to all the difficult questions we face today in how we shop, eat, and cook.

Any thoughts on these myths? Have any of your own to add, or any you disagree with?
