In your opinion, what are the advantages of organic products and agriculture? Do you think that eating organic food can improve our health?

@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?

My partner and I buy organic whenever there's a choice at the store. We're very lucky in that we can afford it. We have no dependents, unless you count the cat. I do admit, however, that we're not adamant about eating organic and if something we want isn't available as an organic then we'll get it anyway. We also enjoy occasional junk food. His guilty pleasure is Taco Bell burritos, mine is White Castle original sliders.

Hi. I rarely buy organic, not just for price reasons, but, no, liver does not need to be detoxed. Our bodies are Amazing!!! Our liver can even regrow from simply a fraction of it. Save $$ & don't be pulled into detox. We are wonderfully made!

Organic all the way! Chemicals and processed foods in general- bagged, boxed or canned don't contain the same nutrients and are bad for you.

Have you ever tried FIT?? It is a vegetable & fruit wash and it removes most of all the improper chemicals and preservatives in our food. Yes, it is expensive but lasts forever. It comes in a big bottle along with a spray bottle. Try it and if you have any issues--contact me:
MANY BLESSINGS MICKEY!!

I rarely buy organic foods, as I find them extremely overpriced! I don't know how people are supposed to eat healthy when they can't afford it..
