Wondering Which Foods to Buy Organic?

Which Foods to Buy Organic

Are you wondering which foods to buy organic? 

While not everyone can agree that buying food organically grown is healthier, no one can argue that they don’t contain fewer pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.

By definition, buying food with the USDA organic label means the product was grown free of chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizers, was not treated with antibiotics, and contains no additives. In addition, for a food to be labeled organic, the food can not be genetically modified or irradiated.

Start by buying these 14 produce items organically grown to greatly reduce your exposure to chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
