Whether or not organic food is healthier than conventionally grown food is a big topic of debate in science, which is interesting, because it seems to me that most people (whether they buy organic or not) just assume that it is, in fact, healthier.

As it turns out, science doesn’t know! But here’s a really great article from Vox summarizing a recent study and some background in the broader research and its challenges.

In short: Is organic healthier? We don’t know, and we may not ever. But eating more fruits and vegetables definitely is good, so eat more produce – whether you buy organic or not!
