The Case for Organic Strawberries
Yes, we know that conventionally grown strawberries are super cheap this time of year. But, did you know that strawberries are one of the heaviest sprayed crops? Not only that, but there is a very real chance that the California Department of Pesticide Regulation might be successful in their attempt to approve methyl iodide as pesticide. And, why is that bad? Methyl iodide is a toxic pesticide that is known to cause brain damage, cancer and miscarriage. In fact, it is a chemical that is used to intentionally induce cancer in lab animals!
We often hear complaints that organic produce doesn’t look as good or get as big as conventionally grown. And, yes, sometimes that’s true. But if you put a small, ripe organic strawberry next to a conventional one that’s the size of kiwi, I can guarantee you that the small organic strawberry is not only going to taste better, but it’s also going to have more nutrients.
Stay tuned because we will soon have exciting new research results to share on the taste and nutritional superiority of organic strawberries, from the most sophisticated comparison study ever carried out anywhere in the world.
