It’s funny to hear an argument being used by both sides on a debate. In this case, it’s about organic foods, which don’t use pesticides.
Both the organic industry and organic skeptics have used the argument that there have been no long-term studies on the health effects of ingesting small amounts of pesticides over a long period of time.
Some organic skeptics argue that since it’s not proven the pesticide levels in food are harmful, we shouldn’t worry about it. But if there have been zero studies on the subject, isn’t that all the more reason to be hesitant?
