Buying Organic Apples Could Change Agriculture

I eat a lot of apples! Apples are a great grab and go, but there’s a teeny-tiny problem. Most apples are loaded with pesticides.

And in this video Alan Greene, MD, a well-known advocate of organic food and green living, talks about the risks of non-organic apples and why organic apples present a unique opportunity to improve public health.

I love the idea that buying organic apples will increase the demand and put pressure on agriculture to grow more and more organic apples.

Dr. Greene has a bunch of these little videos on other foods like organic beef and organic soy. Here’s your homework. Go watch them!
