Although this article states that Organic foods are not necessarily healthier.  You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that putting pesticides, hormones and antibiotics into your body is not healthy.  It used to be widely known that cigarettes were good for you, but I’m sure the people smoking them knew different…in spite of what regulatory agencies/companies said.

Johns Hopkins Health Alert - January 28, 2006

While all organic foods carry this basic seal of approval, other words on the label indicate the quantity of organic ingredients the food contains:

  • “100% organic” means the food contains only organically produced raw or processed ingredients, with the exception of water and salt.
  • “Organic” indicates that 95% of the ingredients are organically produced.
  • “Made with organic ingredients” denotes that at least 70% of the ingredients in the product are organic.
