Joel and Sina don’t buy into that dogma, and neither do a team of scientists who recently published a study showing an increase in pesticide exposure when switching from a Western diet to a Mediterranean diet. Join Joel and Sina as they challenge this assumption, which has become the hallmark of “healthy” living protocols across the country.

Study showing changing from a Western diet to a Mediterranean diet results in increased exposure to insecticide, organophosphate, and pyrethroid. In contrast, changing from a Western diet to a Mediterranean diet composed or organic foods results in reduced exposure to all groups of synthetic chemical pesticides:
Study showing the location of pesticides in different parts of foods vary with the type of food and type of pesticide as well as environmental conditions. It also shows that pesticides can be broken down by photolysis, hydrolysis, oxidation and reduction, metabolism, temperature, and pH:
Study showing the quality of ingredients improves, and the number of ingredients decreases as you transition from conventional processed foods to organic processed foods:
