Do I Need to Go Organic?

Does it really pay to go organic?

If you can spend the extra cash, it may be to your benefit to buy organic meat and milk," says Kathy McManus, RD. "There's definitely a growing concern about the health effects associated with the antibiotics and hormones used in these foods." And some research shows that organic produce may be a bit better; one study found that organic tomatoes pack a bigger nutritional punch than conventional ones. Plants that aren't doused in chemicals seem to produce more antioxidants because they grow in richer soil and they develop a natural resistance to pests. Beyond your personal health, if you're concerned about the effects of pesticides on the environment, go organic.
