30 Biggest Nutrition Lies That are Making Us Fat, Sick and Repulsive

3. Organic food does not make any difference

One has to wonder why all the actually healthy products cost an arm and a leg. Take organic food, for example. Not everyone has the luxury of buying organic goods. Some advocates say organic food is just another fad designed to make you spend more money on food that is just as good as the mass-produced crops.

However, every year, The Environmental Working Group releases a list of pesticides used on non-organic foods. However you slice it, ingesting those chemicals is really bad for you.

There is a silver lining. Even though you don’t have to go all organic, you can buy selectively. The Environmental Working Group releases another list that details 15 products least likely to be sprayed with pesticides. At least you can then go non-organic on those items.

Meats, on the other hand, are a bit trickier. To be on the safe side, stay away from processed meats. If you can’t buy free-range, at least search for grass-fed and grain-fed produce. It might cost a bit more, but you will save thousands on medical bills later on in life.
