「什麼是有機食物?」- What Is Organic Food?


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

So you're at the store and you're looking for something quick and easy to eat, but you're also trying to be health-conscious. So instead of the regular Cheesy Mac, you go for the organic stuff. Instead of regular chicken nuggets, you grab some organic chicken nuggets. Then, top it off with some organic sandwich cookies. Mmm...cookies. It's all organic, so it's good for you, right?
你在商店裡,你在找某樣又快又方便吃的東西,但你也試著要注重健康。所以代替一般的起司通心粉,你挑了有機的東西。代替普通雞塊,你拿了些有機雞塊。然後,用一些有機夾心餅乾結束採買。嗯...餅乾。這全是有機的,所以它對你有益,對吧?

Mm-hmm.
嗯哼。

Well...not always.
這個嘛...不總是這樣。

Huh?
嗄?

You see, while 45 percent of Americans think the organic label means healthy or good, organic really has nothing to do with how nutritious the food is for you. Organic really just defines how the ingredients were created, prepared, or raised. Let me explain.
你知道,儘管百分之四十五的美國人以為有機標示就代表健康或好,有機其實真的和食物對你有多營養無關。有機真的只解釋了原料是如何製造、準備或培養出來的。讓我來說明。

Organic means that there aren't any genetically modified ingredients. Also, organic means that no chemicals were used to kill bugs and weeds, and that all pesticides are natural instead of synthetic. And...organic means nothing was fertilized with sewage sludge. Yeah, sewage sludge...
有機代表沒有任何基改原料。還有,有機也代表沒有任何化學製品被用來殺蟲和除草,然後所有殺蟲劑都是天然而非人工的。而且...有機代表沒有任何東西是用汙泥來施肥的。沒錯,汙泥...

Organic also means that nothing was exposed to radiation, which some manufacturers do to sterilize food. And that no industrial solvents were used to clean things up. Also, organic means there could be no chemical food additives that some foods have to make them stay fresh for an unnatural amount of time. And if it's meat, that there's no routine use of antibiotics or hormones pumped into the animals. And all this stuff is really important. But notice, organic doesn't necessarily mean that the ingredients are nutritious.
有機也代表沒有東西被暴露在輻射線下,有些製造商就這樣做來消毒食物。還有沒有工業溶劑被用來清洗東西。此外,有機也代表不能有化學食品添加劑,一些食物內所含有、讓它們能異常長時間保鮮的那種添加劑。如果是肉類的話,不含經常使用、打進動物體內的抗生素或荷爾蒙。這全部都很重要。不過注意,有機不見得代表那些原料是有營養的。

So if you care about healthy foods, it's more important to just eat whole foods, mostly fruits and vegetables, and avoid package-like substances. And yeah, that includes organic Cheesy Mac. And here's a really big tip: If you can pronounce all the ingredients in a package you're holding, then you're on the right track.
所以如果你注重健康食物,只吃純天然的健康食物是更重要的,那大多是水果和蔬菜,並避免盒裝那種物品。對,那就包括有機起司通心粉。這裡是非常重要的一招:如果你可以念出手裡拿的包裝上的所有成分,那你就買對了。

Hey, this is John from Epipheo. Subscribe yourself to the channel—you won't regret it. Also, we wanna know in the comments: What foods do you think are important to buy organic and which ones don't really matter? We'd love to hear your thoughts on that.
嘿,我是 Epipheo 的約翰。訂閱這頻道--你不會後悔的。還有,我們想在留言區了解:什麼是你認為買有機很重要的食物,什麼是沒什麼差別的食物?我們想聽聽你對那的看法。

Also, next week we're talking with an MIT professor about how to lose weight. He uses math to study weight loss. And it's gonna be something you've never heard before. Stick around. Peace out.
另外,下週我們要和一位麻省理工學院的教授談減重。他利用數學來研究減重。這會是一件你前所未聞的事。別走開。再見啦。
