When To Buy Organic Food

Organic Farming BountyOrganic food is always best in a corporate profit driven world of toxic pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, genetic modification, and a total disregard for the well being of humans, and animals.  Certainly most of human history has been organic.  It wasn’t until the 15th century that people began using toxic elements such as arsenic, mercury,  and lead to act as pest repellants, and herbicides.  By the 20th century cancer causing chemicals became the norm in the world of mass agriculture.

Of course there’s nothing like raising your own fruits, vegetables, and livestock.  The well being of knowing that your food is 100% safe because it was grown by your own hand.  Despite this being the cheapest, and healthiest option, when it comes to organic food, it’s impractical for many in this modern world of time constraints, urban sprawl, and harsh weather.  Buying organic can be extremely expensive so when is it absolutely necessary to do so, and when can you save money to get away with buying standard produce, dairy, and meats?
