Why should you buy organic? Well? It helps you to avoid chemicals. These chemicals in your body cause a host of physiological damage long term, as well as disease. You also benefit from more nutrients-vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micronutrients. The taste is way better… tastes fresh and has more flavor. When you buy organic, you avoid GMO and GE foods (Genetically Engineered and Genetically Modified Organisms). You also avoid hormones, antibiotics and drugs in animal products. The Academy of Pediatrics issued a report in 2012 that stated children have “unique susceptibilities” to pesticide residues and exposures early in life that can lead to a decrease in cognitive function as well as behavioral problems.
