Not to mention Organic is loaded with bacteria and in many cases pathogenic bacteria. Right Chipotle?
AND, people who can’t (or don’t want to!) afford organic are supposed to buy asparagus and mangos? Because they’re so cheap? And available? This is Marie-Antoinette telling the masses “Let them eat cake!” (Actually, she never said it, and the quote was “Let them eat Brioche!”)
Please Zooey, I love you, stop giving poor and unresearched advice. You’re a great actress, leave the science to the scientists and the nutrition to the nutritionists.

There are valid grounds for concern about pesticide residues on many fresh fruits and vegetables. See for example this recent (2015) article in Consumer Reports, and look at their test results on pages 30-31. This is a reasonable guide to which fruits and vegetables you should buy only if grown in particular countries, or in some cases, only if organic.
Two published studies are showing that low income shoppers are likely to skip buying any fruits or vegetables after hearing fear-based messages about fresh produce.
Entertainers need to just do their jobs and entertain.
What’s most tragic in all of this is that organic crops are not even tested to ensure they’re truly organic. I worked as an organic inspector for years, and nothing saddened me more than to learn 40% of all the organic food sold in America tests positive for prohibited pesticides.
How are the organic crops tested? Would like to learn more…
