Should you spring for organic fruits and veggies? It’s a question that comes up pretty much every single time we’re presented with produce options, along with “locally grown” or way-cheaper-but-potentially-toxic at the grocery store or farmer’s market.

Now a review of earlier studies—by the National Library of Medicine—found that organic produce and grains contain substantially higher levels of antioxidants and lower levels of pesticides compared to conventionally grown produce, reports The New York Times.

In the past, there’s been some controversy surrounding whether organic fruits and veggies are at all better for you than traditionally grown-and-sprayed stuff. This review refutes that thinking, and it’s pretty comforting data for those of us who aren’t exactly fans of pesticides on our dinner plates.

Now, you can get some “at least it’s worth it” reassurance when you’re laying out a few extra bucks for items in the organic produce aisle (and juice bar). —Molly Gallagher
