Let's all read this and decide if we want to eat organic

Organic foods statistics

Every year sales of organic food doubles. Organic has been a $30 billion industry in the last ten years. Organic is only 5 percent of the food sold. But 12 percent of the cruit and vegetable sold in the United States are organic.

new USDA worker

The chief of the National Organic Program at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is MilesMcEvoy. He used to work for 20 years as the leader of the Washington state organic program. Then he came to the USDA in 2009 to work. His main job is to encorage farmers to farm organically. Also, his department handles whether something can be labeled with the organic label. Organic farmers have that concern that concern that that something they grew won't be organic labeled..
He won't say whether countries such as China, Korea and thev European Union are safe. McEvoy later repeated in an e m sil whether organic food is healthy or not as it is not the job of his department.
He will tell you almost anything about organic food but if you say to him should I choose that organic apples or one grown in a regular orchard. He chooses not to tell his opinion.

organic animals

The people of the United States like organic food so much and spend so much on it because these people like the way the food is produced.
A lot of American's buy organic meat because the animal they are going to eat will be treated better. The National Organic program is looking for ways to treat their animals better Right now, the organic animal farmer has to keep their animals healthy

My family and I eat organic vegetables almost exclusively - we get a weekly vegbox delivered from an organic farm.

There is plenty of debate over whether organic food is better for you than inorganic, but the clincher for me is that organic food is grown and reared in accordance with Nature rather than against it. A major reason for the decline in insect, bird and animal life in the countryside is that too many farms use insecticides, herbicides and other chemicals, as well as removing hedgerows.
