Parents who want to reduce their child’s pesticide exposure may look to organic fruits and vegetables – but the American Academy of Pediatrics says that doesn’t mean they’re safer or healthier than conventional equivalents. The academy says science hasn’t proven that eating pesticide-free food makes people any healthier. Without long-term controlled studies – Dr. Janet Silverstein – a co-author of a new report from the academy – says it can’t be said for certain that organic is better. The report echoes a study released by Stanford University last month. The report from the American Academy of Pediatrics is available at www.aap.org.
