Organic Foods are Good For You

Organic food is more expensive, but when it comes to the staples of your diet, organics are a worthwhile investment, with payoffs that might surprise you. The benefits influence your health today and long-term. The most important fruits and vegetables you should buy organic are those with the greatest pesticide residues, and the ones you eat most often. Buy organic produce in season (preferably local), when it's most affordable—usually it's half the cost. Choose organic foods without fancy packaging.Organic milk also contains more conjugated linoleic acid. This good fat has been linked to numerous health benefits, including stronger immunity, less belly fat, a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, and healthier arteries. Like meat, organic dairy contains no hormones or antibiotics, and there are no pesticides in the cows' feed.
