Is it necessary to buy organic?

When you buy conventionally grown products you are getting products that use pesticides, hormones, steroids, GMO’s, and chemical fertilizers that hurt the farmers, the soil and ultimately your health! Every dollar you invest in organic product supports your health. I encourage everyone to buy organic as much as possible. The most important category to buy organic products is anything coming from an animal (meat, dairy, eggs, etc.) and produce. Top 5 reasons to buy organic: It’s good for you, it’s better for our planet, kind treatment to animals, encourages wildlife, and is GMO-free (genetically modified organisms).
