Tell Us: Organic Food

Will Plainview residents still purchase it after a Stanford questions its health benefits?

There's no shortage of spots to buy organic food in the Plainview area.

But a recent Stanford University study published in the "Annals of Internal Medicine" claims that organic food is not more nutritious than conventional food.

Which has us wondering. Is the study affecting how you shop for your family? Are you more likely to purchase organic food than conventional food? If so, do you buy it for health reasons?

Do you think it tastes better? Do you think organic farming is better for the planet? Or, do you think a forthcoming study will reveal different results?

Tell us in the comments.

Regardless of whether it is or isn't more nutritious for our family, we will continue to make as many organic purchases (locally grown if not organic). I do not need multitudes of scientific studies to tell me pesticides are better off not being consumed by us and the less pesticides that are used by companies the better. It is harmful to our environment. Though those studies do exist. Peer reviewed comprehensive research unlike the Standford University study. I do find that organic foods do generally taste better. Though the latter is also true for fresh picked locally grown produce as well. It may be related to the small farms rather than the lack of pesticides but as long as I can fit it into my budget we will make an effort to purchase it. We stick to the 'Dirty Dozen' and the 'Clean 15' and use this guide to help us with our purchases. http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/
