Organic foods may have higher nutritional value than conventional food, according to some research. The reason: In the absence of pesticides and fertilizers, plants boost their production of the phytochemicals (vitamins and antioxidants) that strengthen their resistance to bugs and weeds. Some studies have linked pesticides in our food to everything from headaches to cancer to birth defects I buy and eat them they are more expensive, but an investment in your health

Tex Originally Answered: So are fruits and veggies that aren't certified organic considered whole foods? Or is it strictly organics?
Whole foods are fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, eggs, dairy, meat, fish and fowl. They don't have to be organic. Things which are not whole foods are those which have been processed highly. This would be things such as cookies, candy, sausage and other cured meats, chips, pretzels - - you know, junk food. They're not whole because they lack the nutrition of foods in their simplest forms. Ready-to-eat foods are not whole except for things such as raw fruits and vegetables, so bananas = yes, banana-flavored snack cakes = no. Organic foods have been studied a lot in recent years. Although they have the reputation of being more nutritious, studies have not borne this out. A lot of hype is being given to organic only foods and locally-grown only foods. A certain book claims they're the only things you should eat. But the book ignores a number of facts, distorts others and just makes up some of its claims, so it isn't reliable. Also, what constitutes "certified organic" varies from state to state. In some cases, certified organic means almost nothing because the standard is very simple. If someone can afford the high prices of organic only and local only, that's fine. But lots of us can't and we eat what's available at grocery stores. As long as you are choosing wisely, that is, choosing whole foods, you will get the nutrition you need.

I agree with you about the bananas and oranges! I have bought organic, but I find it way to expensive! My son-in-law put in a big garden, so I will have lots of veggies this summer!

I made the mistake of buying organic apples a few weeks ago. Never again. They had absolutely no flavor at all.

Well organic apples have a rough exterior like the skin of the apple isn't shiny and feels rough. Apples that are sold at like major supermarkets have a type of wax on them that makes them look shiny and feel smooth. As for organic bananas i don't know...

Gemini Originally Answered: Considering moving. What's the cheapest US city for freshly grown, organic fruits, berries & veggies?
Portland Oregon is loaded with farmers markets, health and natural food stores & other healthy choices. There is a great farmers market down in the Park Blocks during the year at different times. Sauvie island is mostly agricultural land where you can go pick your own food.I know your question has to do with purchasing food but in addition to great food stores there are vegan/vegetarian/organic restaurants & cafes, Bars that serve cocktails made with organic juices, (The Farm is one) Coffee houses that serve organic vegan/vegetarian baked goods (The Fresh Pot has 2 locations and is independantly owned). There is a vegan convinence market called Food Fight, health food co-ops, and large health store chains. My favorite veg Cafe is the Paradox on Belmont in SE Portland. It's a Beatiful Pizza is good as well, and does soy chees and tofu pizza. My favorite food store is Peoples Co-op.
