Are organic foods healthier and do they taste better?

The USDA does not claim that organically produced food is healthier or better tasting than conventionally produced food. Organic food only differs from conventional food in the way it is grown, handled, and processed.

Many do feel that organic food is healthier and tastier than conventional foods. It is hard for me to believe that trying to avoid pesticides and ingesting fewer chemicals by eating organic foods would not be healthier. To me, there is nothing more delicious than a bowl of ripe, organic, local tomato slices sprinkled with sea salt. I doubt your average supermarket tomato could compete with that.
