Organic, what does that mean?

A lot of people think that it is just another way to market products that cost more and seem healthier. That’s actually not the case, most organic products and foods are truly organic, some are partially organic. The usda certified organic sticker is now placed on all organically grown produce and foods. Incase you haven’t seen it yet:

Lately more supermarkets have been stocking their shelves and making special sections for organic products, Publix has a great selection called Greenwise. Whole foods is also a great store for organic/natural products. Organic doesn’t always mean more expensive either and the more organic products hit the shelves the lower the prices will be. Personally I don’t see too much difference in cost. Basically organic means grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. Or in the milk market, meaning the cows arent shot up with growth hormones to produce more milk. So overall going organic is healthier for the earth, animals and humans.
