10 Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About Organic Foods

#9. Organic foods slightly more likely to be contaminated

Hold up for a moment before you pop that organic egg into your mouth. A study from Stanford University found that organic produce was 5% more likely to be contaminated with bacteria such as E.Coli, compared to regular foods. The study found that 67 percent of chicken contained Campylobacter, compared to 64 perecent of conventional chicken, and 65 percent of pork was contaminated with E.Coli versus 49 percent in conventional pork. That’s a pretty steep difference when you’re playing with your health.

Make sure you decontaminate your organic food carefully before you eat it.
