@Courtney_J I like to buy organic products when I can, but I think some of the problem for many people is the price. Sometimes a piece of organic fruit can cost almost twice as much as a regular one! I do think it's better for us to farm with fewer chemicals and pesticides because goodness knows what it does do us, but it's not really financially possible for many. I wish we could do something to make good produce more affordable.

@jasmine1092 Yeah I agree, I think the price is a big limiting factor. When I was a student I wanted to try to eat better but on a part-time/student job salary I couldn't afford it. I do think it's better though, who want's chemicals on/in their food?
