Does it Matter if an Oreo is Organic? Which Foods Should You Buy Organic? What’s the Science?

The more refined a food–sandwich cookies, fish sticks, anything shaped so you can’t tell whether it’s animal, vegetable or mineral–the less important that it’s organic.

So few good nutrients, chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, hormones and antibiotics remain that it doesn’t matter if the food meets USDA organic classification.

In other words, craving an organic Oreo, besides being overkill, is not the future of food.

Local farm markets can be —and they’re less expensive for you and better for the farmer.

Over 100,000 studies were analyzed to find the top 10 foods most heavily contaminated with chemicals…chemicals that wind up inside of you (n.b. : buy these organic)
• Apples
• Bell Peppers
• Celery
• Cherries
• Imported Grapes
• Nectarines
• Peaches
• Pears
• Potatoes
• Red Raspberries
• Spinach
• Strawberries

Least contaminated foods are (n.b.: Buy these foods organic if you like, but it is much less necessary)
• Asparagus
• Avocados
• Bananas
• Broccoli
• Cauliflower
• Corn (sweet)
• Kiwi
• Mangos
• Onions
• Papaya
• Pineapples
• Peas (sweet)
