Erin Prosser at Scientific American Blogs writes that consumers who debate the nutritional values of organic versus conventionally grown fruits and vegetables may be missing the point:
So for now, I say whether you choose the organic bag of apples or the conventionally grown ones really doesn’t make a big difference. As long as you’re choosing any bag of apples over a bag of Doritos, you’re on the right track.
This rings especially true for those who might have access to corner stores and supermarkets that vend conventionally grown produce, but not organic products.
