I found this and I really wanted to share it with you guys for those of you who just aren't convinced about buying organic foods or still think it is for "hippies" :) Or if you have people in your family who still need convincing!
The information below was taken from another website (also listed below). Just didn't want you to think I was coming up with this stuff by myself.
Why Buy Organic?
Food the way Mother Nature made it is clean and wholesome. Your body knows just what to do with it. After all, it has had an awfully long time to figure that out.
Organic food doesn't contain toxins like pesticides, heavy metals, dangerous industrial chemicals (for example, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives). And everything in it is natural: it's real food, not "Frankenfood" created in a laboratory for profit regardless of the fact that genetically modified, synthetic foods have massive, well-known health hazards.
studies show that eating it [processed and genetically engineered food] is associated with slow, gradual organ system failure, perforated, bleeding guts, shrunken kidneys, damaged immune systems, increased serious and life threatening diseases like cancer, autoimmune disease, life threatening allergies, irregularities in the blood system, and a host of other dangerous, and deadly conditions.
