Organic produce worth the extra cost?
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Is it worth the extra cost to buy organic produce? Maybe not, according to researchers at Stanford University.
They found no difference in the nutritional value of organic, and non-organic fruits and vegetables.
They did find that organic foods are 30 percent less likely to contain pesticide residue.
But all produce, including non-organic, had pesticide levels well within the limits that are considered safe.
The report was based on more than 200 previous studies.
