Do you realize that not too long ago, “organic” food was just “food”? It’s only been about 60 years since the Green Revolution decided it could do Mother Nature one better, introducing large-scale monoculture, pesticides, herbicides and eventually genetically engineered plants and animals.

Organic food is about much more than just pesticide residue. Take a look at my latest article with Natural News, “Consider Four More Reasons to Buy Organic” for a look at the global implications of your food choices.
