Is Organic really that good?
In order for a produce to be considered organic they need to be completely organic and made of all organic materials, use natural growth habits, and involve no pesticides or herbicides.
“Though a product may say its organic it may be only patricianly organic” say the FDA, “people need to be aware if they are buying what they think they are.”
What make organic more expensive and is it worth it?
When you go to your local grocery store do you buy the produce from your country? Or imported?
Here is a great link to a convincing video:
(this video may be based on Canada, but it applies everywhere!!!)
Have you noticed how often people buy things that aren’t even from their country? When our great grand parents ate their meals, it was most likely that they received the full benefits of the food. Not only were soil erosion, pollution, and commercial use of pesticides not as prominent as they are now, but importing food was an expensive and rare occurrence.
!!!Imported food rarely inspected!!!
