If you ever worked on a farm and saw how produce is handled, you would think twice. Cooking foods kills harmful bacteria. There is a risk-benefit situation. Yes, it is true that there will be some destruction of nutrients. On the other hand the removal of pesticides and the extermination of dangerous organisms has survival value also.
An old girl friend ofmine has a large organic farm, and she is very careful about pesticides. Nevertheless, the harvesting process is not very sanitary. Organic is the way to go. Remember to remove the skins of tomatoes, eggplants and potatoes, as the skins contain neurotoxins mother nature developed to prevent insect infestation.
thank you! I dont want to go extreme but Im thinking of doing organic veggies and fruit and adding some flaxseed and such but still keeping the organic chicken and some fish. good to know about the skins I will do that!
