It seems everywhere you turn these days you see the word “Organic.” From the aisles of your local grocery store to articles on choosing a new mattress. You may be wondering to yourself if this is just the newest fad and is it really worth buying into all the hype? The truth is, organic is a movement…and one you don’t want to ignore. For many years now, the conventional foods we have all been buying have been laden with chemicals such as pesticides, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors. Add in the disturbing fact that much of it is also genetically modified (GMO) and contains high fructose corn syrup and it is no wonder that many diseases such as diabetes and cancer are on the rise. Buying organic will ensure that you do not expose yourself or your family to these toxins since organics are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or GMOs and never contain anything artificial. And thus by making the choice to go organic, you will also be helping to protect the environment from the harmful chemicals that are poisoning our soil, water and air. So choose organic…your family, and the planet, will thank you!
