HEALTHY YOU Q's: Organic Foods


Q. Are organic foods better for you than regular foods? Why or why not?

A. “Industrial food is cheaper, quicker and easier to fix, it’s more practical,” says Dr. Pierre Dukan, nutritionist. But he goes on to say that it often contains more sugar, salt, pesticides, etc., making organic the ideal choice. But here’s the deal — rather than stressing about whether or not your cuisine is organic, just make sure you’re getting loads of foods packed with nutrients and vitamins and all that good stuff.
