What are some mind-blowing facts about food? - Quora
I found it amazing that it's been known since the 80's that organic food is more carcinogenic (or rather, has more carcinogenic substances in it), the theory being that since organic food has to protect itself from pests, it creates these carcinogenic substances to kill/deter them. Those substances remain after the plant is picked and eaten, meaning they end up entering our bodies. Plants that are raised conventionally don't have to fight off pests, so the pesticide remains on the outside of the plant, which, presumably is removed if you wash it well enough.
