What does "organic" really mean? Should you eat it? And why does it cost more at the grocery store?
In this documentary, we take a closer look at the organic food debate through the dirtiest fruits in North America: the apple. We interview an organic apple farmer and a conventional apple farmer to find out how they farm and what sort of chemicals they use to grow our food. We also talk to a toxicologist and a UN sustainability consultant to find out just how dangerous pesticides are to our health.
