The Cost of Not Eating Organic


Comments made by people I’d thought understood why growing and eating genetically modified and other non-organic foods are dangerous to humans, other animals and the planet spurred me to write this post.

“Why should I pay more for organic carrots? They’re not any bigger than the other kind.” – heard at a farmers’ market

“Organic is just a label for getting us to pay more for our food.” – said by an MD

“Genetically modified foods have been tested and are safe to eat.”  “The US government protects the safety of our food supply.”
