Thank you so much for uploading this!
A government with interest in his people would make organic a standard!!!
Thank you, by the way, for a scholarly presentation of the information in this video. It was good and informative. However, I have one question, and you may have to answer it in terms of your own opinion, only because I don't know if there is a ready study to draw from: does rinsing with baking soda or saponified/castile soap work more effectively than rinsing with water on non-organic produce? What do you think would be the percentage increase in pesticide removal in comparison to pure water?
@charliecheesenewyork It'd be wonderful if you could post it to this specific video on nutritionfacts. org. This way more people benefit from the response, and I can actually provide you with links (which I can't do on Youtube). Thanks!
I couldn't hear anything on this video 🙁
Too bad I can only like the video ones 🙁
You're scaring me, I eat a lot of conventional produce.
Have you ever heard of ultrasonic fruits and vegetable washers, do you think they work on removing chemical residues?? Thanks for he vid 🙂
I didn't know Bob Ross knew so much about pesticides, where's all the happy little clouds
Yes,.. there idea of this is to wantonly label EVERYTHING "ORGANIC"
Damn it, we dont have any organic shops in our town , the only way I could get organics would be to drive for 4 hours. AAAAHHHHHHHHH…………….fuck this world.
I have the same problem :/
I have been lately washing produce with vinegar, don't know if that actually makes a lot of difference….
Wow! You are the best source of reliable, scientific information. Whatever they are paying you, it isn't enough. 😉
Are you aware of studies that show a conventional vegan diet is still better for you than an "organic" meat diet? Or something along those lines? Thanks again for life-saving info!
that opened my eyes i eat organic from now on. But can a consummer somehow test if the fruit and vegetables are really organic??
lol yeah. But it's clear from so many other tings that the government doesn't care about the people, or at least not as much as it cares about getting paid by the food companies. For example, the fact that we have a meat industry that allows shit in our meat shows that the government doesn't care about the people (not to mention the animals)
Great info, however, I disagree that organic produce stores better. I have consistently shorter shelf life of all organic produce – from apples to lettuce to potatoes. This is one reason why it's more expensive than conventional produce – it goes bad fast or needs to be replaced sooner.
I'm pretty sure that the pesticides, herbicides and fungicides and any other toxic chemicals accumulate a lot more and our present I heard 60 times more in meat products than in conventional produce..of course organic is best, which is simple food without poison on it…
Was the Japanese Soy Organic? I hear over 90% of the Soy in USA is GMO.
agreed and many fruits we get as well are mutants .. like bananas which should have seeds but don't.
The common banana was bred to not have seeds. It reproduces through grafting. If you are looking for any organism on the planet that has not mutated, you are on the wrong planet.
This sounds like a pitch for Whole Foods stores. Besides the non existent of pesticides, organic food does not have more vitamins and nutrients than a non organic food.
What is your opinion on the recent change of the FDA with respect to the USDA labeling of Organic not really being Organic anymore. This might have been true before, but to be honest I think it is just a money making scheme. Most of the tiem they just import the food from the outside and label it with organic.
I read a journal study awhile back that scrubbing your edible plant based foods with eco-friendly soap washes off over 90% of the pesticides. Wish Dr. Greger would have compared this instead of just rinsing with water.
That picture at the end hit me hard.
It's a shame that only upper income neighborhoods have grocery stores that stock a decent selection of organic produce. Most others do not. Same chain stores in differing income neighborhoods are indeed typically vastly different with the quality of their offerings. Once again lower income people get the shaft.
So, is there an effective way to remove a significant amount of pesticide residue from fruits and vegetables?
Try eating organic on minimum wage. Not sustainable at all…
Organic apples don't store or taste better, they are always softer and lower quality in the supermarket.
Soy consumption would be higher in China and Soy allergies have explode to 50% in the UK due to overuse in the last 10 years of soy based products so maybe your statistics need to be revisited DR.? Again I see a little bit of knowledge doing a lot of harm, there aught to be a law against people like you!
use white vinegar to rinse your veggies and fruits even if they are organic. They have been exposed to people touching them, sneezing in public, children etc.
Roundup Killing you
Is this covert information? Is there a reason why you are mumbling it? Enunciate and project your sentences so your audience can understand what you are saying.
Beware of the "organic" snack bar items in grocery stores. I'm paying the price for making that mistake.
in norway organic food is about the double prize of normal food. And normal food is already too expensive..
Amazing how much research has been done showing that organic produce significantly reduces agricultural chemicals in bodies. And still people claim that it's a myth that organic is healthier
I now appreciate organic even more considering how little pesticides come off with washing. Chlorella and chlorophyllin are good options to consume with conventional produce if need be.
Of course rinsing won`t take much off but what about if you brush it?
Awesome study Dr. Gregor… This validated a lot of things for me .. thank you!!!
Sometimes I wash my produce with dish detergent. Is that bad?
that helped a lot
Can't eat meat, can't eat eggs, can't eat this, can't eat that ? No milk, no cheese, and now no veges unless they're super expensive organic ones. Unfortunately , not in everyone's budget ;(looks like all middle-class people have to die
I enjoy that he doesn't mention that Organic foods use just as many pesticides that in some cases can be more harmful than their synthetic counterparts. Being labeled Organic has nothing to do with pesticide use.
Pause and read the study at 2:50. No hypospadias in the control group, but 25% with the soy estrogen alone! The Asians eat a lot of FERMENTED soy products, that's the difference. Fermentation digests the phytoestrogens and adds beneficial bacteria, making an unhealthy food into a very healthy one. Miso and real, living soy sauce are inexpensive, too.More recent studies in 2015-2016 have proven higher levels and concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats in organic produce and proteins, along with fewer pesticides and weed killers.Cost of organic is only slightly higher than conventional in most areas now, especially where it is in demand! Get your friends and neighbors to demand more and better local organic options at your grocer, and the volume will drive prices down dramatically. Support your local farmers, and form co-ops to protect land and begin organic farms near you. It CAN be done, it is being done all over the USA.Take charge of your diet and your health. Don't let government or anyone else use you as a lab experiment. Eat food as God intended, not from a test tube. Nothing costs more than food full of poisons, just like nothing costs more than a "free" government program.
Is it like this in every country?
I'm curious to know what kind of test a consumer can perform on produce to determine whether or not it is organic. The organic movement arose in response to known toxic chemicals being added to foods for various reasons including pest resistance. To eliminate the chemicals the focus switched to the farming practices to ensure that chemicals were not used for food production but even when the best practices are followed, these chemicals can wind up on food. Neighboring farms can overspray, produce can be accidentally mislabeled, maliciously mislabeled, or simply mixed up at the grocery store if a consumer grabs an orange without a sticker then puts it back in the wrong bin. The consumer can accidentally buy the wrong stuff too if they do not read carefully. Really, organic should be about the produce itself at the point of sale because that is what needs to be healthy and non toxic. So how can the consumer test what he is about to buy/eat to ensure that it meets the standards?
it sounds like he is talking quietly because he is afraid of a giant microphone monster
Team starch!!! Woot woot!
Organic crops are sprayed with substances that have the same effects as Conventional Pesticides. They are those substances approved for Organic farming aka "The National List" substances. Why are you mistating the facts Dr. Greger?
Some of you may not know this but if there is a farm nearby that is using pesticides on their food and there is a farm close to it that is not. The organic farm or soil can become contaminated because to this. There is a video about this on Youtube
Dr Gregor I've always appreciated the content of your videos BUT the photo of the infant without limbs was inappropriate. Nothing you spoke about indicated that would happen. You discussed hypospadius. I'm sad you stooped to that. Why?
GMO companies will support papers that claim the opposite of this video; if this video becomes popular.
Japan is high in fermented soy, not toxic soy that we use in usa.
organic industry is a total SCAM.. this is just another way if increasing the price of food… I know supermarkets that spray their organic fruits and vegetables before putting them out for display with pesticides… just wash your food properly and don't waste your money on a label that says "organic".
PESTICIDES CAUSE ALZHEIMERS – THEY ARE NEURO-TOXINS
Solution: buy organic, grow organic, raise organic. Try planting and scattering cilantro seeds among your edible crops for easy, safe pest and disease control. These are Hardy, grow easily, and produce lots of seeds that you can easily harvest to repeat and expand the process.
the last picture at the end though
So disturbing. Seems i'll be going organic. Thank you Dr
1 part salt to 9 parts tap water solution: https://youtu.be/_2H3rg42wP8?t=4m7s
Omg why is he talking so slow, it sounds so unnatural, I love it when you are yourself Dr Greger
Pasta sides fungicides how besides my liver will take care of that okay
Organic still have some pesticides
I this an ASMR video? He's talking so much softer than usual. 🙂
The video and selective use and Greger's interpretation of the studies he uses is blubbering horseshit. Residue levels are many, many magnitudes below safe levels.
