Question: I recently saw a news article about a study at Stanford that said organic food really isn’t any healthier than regular foods. Do you believe this to be true?
Dr. Cwynar's answer:
I wholeheardedly disagree! It's true that some organic foods with peels, such as bananas or oranges, won't make much difference. This is because the peel has almost all of the harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, which we discard before eating. However, the overwhelming majority of organic food is absolutely healthier than that grown with chemicals. Food is your fuel. Non-organic foods are loaded with pesticides, heavy metals, hormones. Pick your fuel wisely.
