I am now actually "organic". I am buying most of the food products I eat from certified "organic" sources. The producers do not use manufactured (synthetic) fertilizers, and pesticides, plant growth regulators, hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, genetically modified organisms, or human sewage sludge ( I'm especially glad of that last one) Right now I'm buying most of my organics from Whole Foods because they have the biggest variety by far, and they are the freshest and often less expensive than the organics at other stores. Speaking of expense - I'm so tired of everyone saying "I can't afford to buy organics, they cost 10 times as much as regular". Quit exaggerating! This week regular bananas were $.79 lb and organic bananas were $.99 lb. If we don't buy all the chips, candy, and Ho-Hos, etc., we can easily afford to upgrade to organic apples and bananas for snacking. Isn't it worth it to avoid pesticide and herbicide residues on our food . . . and on our children's food? We brought our babies into this world, the least we can do is not feed them bugspray and weedkiller. Soon there will be farmer's markets in every other parking lot. I'm going to be buying "local" organic as much as I can and focusing on what is in season and abundant. I'm looking for a local CSA - Community Supported Agriculture, if anyone knows of one.
