Stanford Study Shows Both Conventional and Organic Produce is Nutritious and Safe9/4/2012 10:16 AM
Today, there is widespread media coverage of a new peer reviewed study from Stanford University’s Center for Public Health Policy which found that there are little nutritional differences between organic and conventional produce. Further, the Stanford study stated that any levels of pesticide residues found on fruits and veggies were almost always under the Environmental Protection Agency’s stringent safety limits.
This study underscores what the Alliance for Food and Farming has been stating all along – both organic and conventionally grown produce is very safe and very nutritious. Choose either with confidence but eat more fruits and vegetables for better health. It is just that simple.
