Why Should I Care?
This week Farmer Dave of Left Bower Farm sent me this amazing article titled, "What is Organic Food and Why Should I Care?" It is research based and from an extremely reliable source, The University of Minnesota. It is very easy to read and understand, and they even include pictures. It was encouraging to me because one page talked about the startling statistics of childhood cancer among the children of farmers in Iowa. It also explained the much reduced risk of pesticide exposure when children are fed organic food. I also did not know that an important nutrient in breast milk dramatically increases when the mom eats organic meat and milk. This article is definitely worth reading:What is Organic Food and Why Should I Care?
