Why Go Organic?

According to the Organic Center's Mission Organic 2010 website,
  • On average, organic produce contains about 30% higher levels of antioxidants. (Find out more about antioxidants and why they're vital to your health --- I HIGHLY recommend learning more about this health buzzword that's being touted in everything from produce to skin care products)
  • Organic farming helps fight climate change because soil treated organically absorbs more carbon.
  • Organic food is safer and more nutritious than conventional food, and you can be assured that organic food will never be irradiated or cloned
The Organic Center has created a video explaining the health and environmental benefits of a more organic lifestyle.
