Surprise! Organic food is grown with organic pesticides. Pesticides are pesticides, so organic is not better for you than non-organic. Organic food may also have drift contamination from conventional farms. There are also strict regulations for maximum residue levels on non-organic produce, so it makes it harder to compare organic and non-organic pesticide residues.
Researchers found lower detectable levels of pesticide residue in organic food than in non-organic food. There are also lower levels of the extremely toxic element cadmium.
