Top 10 Reasons to Eat Organic…

  1. You will dramatically reduce the amount of pesticide residue you ingest on a daily basis. Pesticides ingested by pregnant women may be linked to birth defects and health issues.
  2. Biodiversity is increased with the use of buffer crops, and by avoiding killing or harming insects and other wildlife that is not a threat to crops.

  3. Pesticides are responsible for a staggering amount of greenhouse gas emissions.

  4. You can avoid eating any genetically modified foods.

  5. Reduced reliance on chemical and agri-engineering corporations is good for farmers.

  6. Organic farming is healthier for the soil.

  7. Organic dairy cows are not injected with milk-boosting hormones such as recombinant bovine somatotrophin (rBST) which may increase insulin levels in humans. 

  8. Waterways aren’t contaminated by chemical run-off from farms. 

  9. Pesticide-related health risks to farm workers (and anyone living in the area) are eliminated.

  10. Organics taste better. It’s just our humble opinion, but we’ve noticed a difference in the taste of strawberries, peaches, grapes and leafy greens, so if you’re still skeptical, we dare you to put your faith in conventionally grown foods to the test.
