In this episode of the Renaissance Humans Podcast I speak with Dr. Steve Savage, a plant pathologist who’s spent over 30 years in the agriculture industry. Dr. Savage is deeply concerned with the challenges of feeding our world’s growing population with healthy food, but when it comes to organic, he thinks the wool has been pulled over our eyes.

In this conversation we talk about:

  • Is organic food safer for consumers? How about farm workers?
  • How organic food production damages our environment.
  • Should we buy produce imported from foreign countries with lax agricultural safety standards?
  • The problems with the Environmental Working Group’s “Clean 15”
