Why should I buy Organic?

Put plain and simple: if there are no chemicals used in growing your food, you won't eat any chemicals. You can also be sure no antibiotics or hormones will be present in your milk, eggs, or meat, since none are allowed in organic production. Additionally, organic production must be free of genetically modified (GM), or genetically engineered (GE), substances.
