Is it worth it to spend all that money at Whole Foods? Is the extra $3 splurge for organic produce at Trader Joe’s actually a good use for your hard-earned dollars? In AsapSCIENCE's video, "Is Organic Food Worse For You?" hosts Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown use simple graphics and recent statistics to explore the idea that an organic food diet might not actually be the best decision for your health and the environment (not to mention your wallet.)

Technically, organic foods are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation, according to Organic meats, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are not given antibiotics or growth hormones.

According to the video, many products with ‘organic’ slashed across the label still have many pesticides. Despite being labeled ‘natural,’ these chemicals can be just as harmful to the body and the Earth. Additionally, not everything that’s officially organic actually contains purely natural ingredients.

“Organic fruits and veggies are no more nutritious than conventionally-grown food,” the video from AsapSCIENCE states. Additionally, production methods for organic food products vary greatly, making it difficult to measure standards.

So, is an all-organic diet really the best decision? Watch this video to find out.
