proven scientifically to be sweeter. If you do a taste test you'll see the difference. My children will hardly touch conventional celery but
they love organic celery. I notice a big difference in organic apples, peaches and carrots too. What accounts for the taste
difference? Conventional farmers often use crops that are genetically modified to look good and last longer on store shelves, but they lose
flavor in the process.
Organic food contains more nutrients. Tests have shown organic products to have significantly more substances that
promote health. Eating lots of organic fruits and vegetables gives you more nutrition. Get more nutritional bang for your bite and
Organic fruits and vegetables are not grown using harmful chemicals and pesticides. The obvious benefit of this is that your body
is exposed to fewer chemicals. This not only helps protects your health from currently known and yet undiscovered health
problems, it also helps protect the environment. When harmful pollutants are put into the soil, they upset the ecosystem and can even
work their way into your drinking water.

and use for food.
