Dylan came across a very interesting/disturbing/helpful website today. It's www.whatsonmyfood.org. This website makes me want to ban EVERYTHING that is not organic in our family. Although this is very difficult, if not impossible, at least it will show you why it is very important to buy organic as often as possible. The best way to do this is to slowly commit to certain items...like produce one month...then possibly incorporate milk the next month, etc. I have known for a long time that non-organic is loaded with all kinds of nasty things, but I was shocked to see just how much is in things such as cucumbers!! And butter! And apple juice!!
We are fortunate here because we grow a large majority of our own food, and after looking at this website, I am very thankful for that. The contaminates listed on this site are things that you can't wash off, it is IN the food you eat..therefore it is in your body if you eat them.
