Since one of the protagonists in Sweet Salt Air (my coming book) is a die-hard locavore, I was naturally interested in this. Not that a locavore necessarily eats organic. By definition, a locavore buys and eats food that is locally produced – food produced by local farmers and sold in local markets – but since the trend among local farmers is for organics, I’ve connected the two.
So. Are you healthier if you eat organically grown food?
