Five Myths Impede Greater Acceptance Of The Organics Industry

August 13, 2010: 09:15 PM EST
Five key misconceptions about organic food are keeping the industry from becoming mainstream. For example, despite the findings of a recent study, eating organic food does not lead to obesity. Organic shoppers, in fact, tend to buy low-calorie produce. And organic labeling is not just a marketing gimmick. The USDA-approved labels signify a grueling process endured by producers, growers, etc., to make ensure that products are free from irradiation, genetically modified organisms, pesticides and other disqualifying substances. Lastly, organic foods are safe, even though they are free of hormones, chemical waxes and sanitizers; they are not necessarily more expensive; and they are not inferior to so-called “natural” foods.
