Organic food for optimal health has been our mantra for many years. Indeed, lord science has confirmed that certified organically grown fruits and vegetables are higher in antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and other beneficial substances.
Today the "organic" label is being usurped and manipulated.by corporate agriculture (BigAgra), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). "Natural," "USDA certified" and "organic" are grocery-store terms for food and drink which contains less pesticide residue than other processed items but often contains genetically modified or nano-modified components, as well as harmful additives.
The only way to know your food is really organic is to buy "Certified Organic" products, grow your own, be a member of a CSA (community-sponsored agriculture) farm, or buy from organic farmers' and food markets.
