To Organic or Not to Organic

(thanks Jason Bolduc for the chart)

Now it kiiiiiills me to use the word 'Conventional' to define factory farmed with pesticides, growth hormones and forced-genetic modifications, etc etc...  But I feel that will change someday soon.

I get the question a lot if organic foods are worth the cost.  If you're concerned with a natural way to get the vitamins you need then this chart shows organic choices make a HUGE difference.  Perhaps replace your 'daily vitamin' budget (and unseen saved health care expenses) with more organic produce.  

Here is a list of the 'dirty dozen' - the worst culprits of 'conventional' foods you should avoid.  (also click the 'clean 15' - safest foods to buy from conventional sources).  Face it, there are untested things in our foods that you shouldn't be ingesting.  Think about it.
