Do the pesticides on soybeans make it an unhealthy food choice?

Any crop that is not organically grown can contain pesticide residues. I am uncertain about the level of pesticide residues in soy crops in comparison to other food crops, but soy is a very healthful food for most people and you can alleviate your concerns by selecting organically grown soy products. Organically grown products are not only healthier for you but are healthier for the planet as well. Additionally, while conventionally grown soybeans are very likely to have been genetically modified, by definition, organic soybeans cannot be genetically modified.
