According to a recent Stanford University Study, fruits and vegetables that are labeled as organic were, on average, no more nutritious than their conventional counterparts. Organic foods are usually grown without synthetic pesticides and the fertilizers that are only used are organic fertilizers. They also do not use antibiotics or growth hormones. For livestock, they are only fed with organically produced feed that is free of pesticides and animal byproducts. On top of that, the livestock are given access to the outdoors, direct sunlight, fresh air, and they are very free to move.
