What’s The Big Deal About Organic?

Other than being more expensive does it really make a difference? Research shows exposures to pesticides and herbicides in common household chemicals are destroying male fertility, causing weakened immune systems, and obesity and diabetes are being triggered by compounds in the environment. We could make the argument that, at the very least, we are sensitive to the things we put in and on our body.

Shopping organic can be expensive, but switching to organic from the “dirty dozen” is a great start that won’t break the bank. Most of our exposures come from a select few fruits and vegetables. Click here for the updated list (this information is also available in-office).
