There has been much debate regarding the differing health benefits between organic and non-organic foods. Needless to say, non-organic foods are constantly genetically modified and have pesticides and other types of preservatives added to help sustain the produce and protect it from pests or diseases.
Consumers are left with two options when it comes to buying produce: non-organic foods or organic foods. Even the names themselves give off a certain image; when you picture organic food, it is most likely produce that has been cared for properly and is respected.
It seems as though almost every type of produce that we consume has been littered with pesticides. Sure these pesticides are used in good faith (to protect against disease ridden pests), but they do not simply wash off when consumers buy them.
