Organic has no health benefits
Look, everything that is grown, is organic. The word itself is taken from 'Organism'. But go to the grocery story, find something with a green label that is either 'organic' or 'natural' and the price is jacked up through the roof.
It's a trendy thing to buy organic. It looks good and if you are silly enough to let it make you think you are eating better, it works too.
It's a gimmick to sell ordinary food at higher prices to those that have more money than common sense.
Among the 55 of 162 studies that were included in the final analysis, there were a small number of differences in nutrition between organic and conventionally produced food but not large enough to be of any public health relevance, said study leader Dr Alan Dangour.
