Is Organic Food Really Better? Healthy Food or Trendy Scam?

Kurzgesagt asks: “Is Organic Really Better? Healthy Food or Trendy Scam?” The answer, like most things, is it’s complicated. Taking into account the results of dozens of studies (extensive list of sources), they examine the evidence that organic food is better for our health and for the environment. When comparing to food produced by conventional methods (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) the result is pretty much a toss-up.

I can’t help but agree with their final conclusion: eating more fruits and vegetables of any kind and buying local foods that are in season is the best option. I would note, that they only cover organic produce, not meat. Very possible that there are different outcomes there, plus animals are sentient creatures which adds a whole mess of new considerations.
