Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Is It Bad For You. This week we tackle the sometimes hostile world of organic vs non-organic. There is no question that organic is more expensive than non-organic but the question on everyone's lips is why is it so and should be "biting the bullet" and going organic for our health? 

Well we dive into it all

  • We go into the fundamental reasons why organic is more expensive

  • What some of our listeners choose and why

  • We explore the "nasty chemical" that is glyphosate (spoiler alert it's not as nasty as you think) and give you the information you need including the acceptable daily intake

  • We look at pesticides, in general, seeing what the current evidence says which also leads us to look at claims such as "pesticides cause autism"

  • We discuss the media and its apparent biased in this conversation - essentially spreading fear and according to one meta-analysis could be causing certain low-income households to not buy certain foods as unable to afford the organic variety

  • We also briefly touch on if organic is better for the environment - the conclusion may surprise you!

So yeah a jam-packed episode for sure but one that is super important. If you find it useful and or entertaining make sure to share it with someone who may need to hear it....Maybe you know an organic zealot?
