    Ever since I started eating organic my health has improved dramatically. I have to agree with you on the comments that you made about pesticides and herbicides being the problem with nonorganic food. I can definitely testify that organic food taste a lot better. Once you have organic you will never want to go back. People forget that all our nutrients are suppose to come from food not supplements. We live in quick fix society which demands magic pill answers for everything. Supplements are quick fix but they don’t solve the real problem at hand which is lifestyle. If you eat organic foods your one step ahead in moving to a healthier way of living.
