Just because it is labeled “Organic” does not mean it is healthy

We read and hear a lot today about buying organic foods. They are supposed to be healthier for us. In most cases this is quite true. When we are buying fruits, vegetables, whole grains, eggs, meat, and dairy, organic is a very healthy choice.

However, to put it simply – a chip is still a chip. An organic corn chip is still a corn chip. It is still processed corn deep fried in an oil. The corn is still processed and the oil is still damaged from high heat. An organic canned vegetable is still a canned vegetable. It has been packaged and processed with most of the nutrients being lost. An organic cracker made from organic enriched flour is still made from enriched flour.
