A new study finds that organic food may not be much healthier than conventionally grown food.

Researchers at Stanford University found that eating organic fruits and vegetables can lower exposure to pesticides. But, they say, the amount measured in non-organic produce is very small and within safety limits.

As for nutritional value, organic food did not prove to be more nutritious.

Some organic foods can cost considerably more, but as demand grows, prices are expected to fall.
