Is organic food really organic? Well, according to a new study by Stanford University researchers, all foods and vegetables that have an organic label may not be organic. To tell that organic food is really organic, is should have a label from the ‘ U.S Department of Agriculture’s official USDA organic seal.’ The study from Stanford University says there’s not much of a difference between naturally grown foods and organically grown foods.

One difference between organic and non-organic are pesticides. Normal crop growers use pesticides. Pesticides are chemicals used to kill insects, protecting their crops from insects. Most likely, organic meats are less likely to have “superbugs.” Superbugs are bugs that are resistant to antibiotics, it makes it a lot harder for farmers to clean the vegetables or foods. A New York University professor was quoted as saying, “for all customers looking to boost their health through better nutrition, the fact that natural organic foods don’t appear to have more vitamins or minerals.” According to the Reader’s Digest, farmers are not able to grow organic foods for everyone. ” The population is getting bigger by the year” says the farmers getting interviewed by Reader’s Digest. Some people may say, “Why can’t they just plant it, and give it to the community?” Well, it’s not that easy to get organic foods. When travelers who are giving the state organic foods, there trucks create tons of pollution. That pollution may or may not disrupt animals habitat or may effect the environment.

All in all, organic food may not be as good for the environment or other things, but it may be better for your body even though scientists note there is not much of a difference between organic and non-organic foods.
