  • Depends. IMO. I live in the country and buy my meat and eggs from my friends parents, where I know it is truely organic. But to say, go to Walmart, and buy "organic" I don't think it's as organic as one would think. So come the season I go to the local Farmer's Market and buy organic. I could also get my milk from my friends too if I choose, straight from the farm and oh so yummy!

  • I agree with 2BlondeBabies, it really does depend on where you buy it from. I used to by a certain brand of so-called natural chicken patties once in a while from a major food company, but I stopped after I saw a food documentary showing how the chickens were being raised, no thanks.

  • Pesticides are not healthy for people or the planet.

    We follow the clean fifteen/dirty dozen fairly closely, though we don't eat any GMOs

  • ~*Hype*~... mostly, we've banned most stuff in America to even be used, and this isn't the 1950s anymore, we have more to fear from what is shipped in, not what is already made and sold here... read and buy MADE IN AMERICA since we have higher standards???
