Is there really a difference between organic and conventional food? A new 'study' has hit the mainstream media declaring that there is not, however it is fatally flawed.
In this video, I explain how the study failed to accurately address key aspects of what makes organic food truly healthy, and how the very few aspects that they did analyze actually lean towards organic food being the clear choice.

The study authors failed to identify the fact that organic food items do not contain things such as: GMOs (genetically modified organisms), artificial sweeteners, higher concentrations of bisphenol-a (BPA), cloned material (rBGH), and much more. They also fail to mention in the titles of the mainstream reports that the study actually revealed that organic food contained less pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and antibiotics.
The researchers also failed to mention that the herbicides and pesticides used in conventional food items are oftentimes much more dangerous, with Roundup in particular (the #1 herbicide in the US created by Monsanto) being linked to conditions such as infertility, DNA damage, and cancer.
There certainly is a distinct difference between organic food and conventional, and it takes a bit of digging to realize that this study 'proving' that there isn't really does not examine many essential factors when reaching such an inaccurate conclusion.
