What do you see as the primary factors influencing people who choose to eat organic vs. conventionally produced foods? Will the publicity around this new research study add to the momentum of organic food sales in the U.S.?
Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments:
It is only a matter of time before people will realize that everything that goes into their bodies matters. It used to be that you could eat organic vegetables, meat, fish, and poultry but worry that condiments and other ingredients that are used in cooking would sabotage the effort. Now almost everything you need to prepare a meal can be organic so if you can afford it, you can be true blue organic all the way. I don’t think that this one study will drastically change a trend that is already hot. Those that practice good eating habits will continue to do so and those that eat poorly will either start to buy in or will ignore it. Exercise, sleep, not drinking too much alcohol, stress and many other factors of our daily lives will have a greater impact in the long run than if you are eating only organic on a regular basis. At the end of the day, those that tend to eat healthy are the ones that tend to take care of themselves and exercise on a daily basis to try to stay in shape.
