Post Is organic better? High school student presents compelling evidence

We've all wondered about it but high school student Ria Chhabra from Plano, Texas, decided to actually answer the question. She used fruit flies to determine if organic was better than conventionally raised foods.[2][3] She measured fertility and longevity. The conclusion? Fruit flies given organic food lived substantially longer and procreated better than their conventional fed counterparts. Her parents no longer argue about organic vs conventional food. The family eats only fresh organic food.[1]

It is interesting to see how further studies come along from this.

  1. I read some folks hatched Trader Jo’s Fertile eggs!
    I saw some fertile brown chicken eggs at Uwajimaya yesterday for $4.99/dz.
    Very tempted.
    All of my last batch of Costco’s Organic eggs were also fertile.
    Some of the Egglands Best also that way. Hmmmm
    Maybe it is a Spring thing??? Fertile eggs everywhere except for in my duck’s nest.
    She went broody over 2 blue easter eggs…hahaha
    But that would be an inexpensive way to hatch some eggs.
