People concerned about whether they should make the switch to organic foods to ensure good health and prevent disease should keep in mind the fact that organic food has its positives, negatives, myths and misconceptions, according to this Biofuels Watch article. On the positive side are environmental gains, nutritional benefits from the avoidance of herbicides and pesticides, less use of unhealthy hydrogenated fats in processing, etc. Organic negatives include higher cost and faster spoilage of produce.
