2/07/12-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 8. December 2012 08:25

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 (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 veggies most likely to absorb these chemicals.  They are peaches, nectarines, apples, bell peppers, celery, lettuce, beef, eggs, and milk.  If you can budget for organic foods, try to change those products first.  Check out LocalHarvest.org for best buy ideas.


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 results from the study.  Investigate and check with your doctor before you change your habits based on the media hype surrounding any new study results.
