2/13/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. February 2013 09:00

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported in the fall that organic foods don’t contain more vitamins and minerals than conventional foods. These results are considered highly debatable (the study didn’t look at potential risks of the fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics found in conventional foods).

            My opinion is to choose those fruits or vegetables most likely to absorb these chemicals. They are peaches, nectarines, apples, bell peppers, celery, lettuce, beef, eggs, and milk. If you can afford organic, try to change those products first. Check out localharvest.org for best buys.

            Also, read between the lines when new controversial studies come out. Look at the criteria they use for measuring their results. Look to see who paid for the study and whether they benefit from any certain result from the study. Investigate and check with your doctor before you change your habits based on the media hype surrounding any new study results.
