How Clean is Organic?


How about this little bit of information I found a few weeks ago regarding 'organic' foods and how they actually may not be as clean as we thought.

Organic fruits and vegetables may still be grown with pesticides. They’re just not synthetic chemicals. Biological pesticides are allowed in the treatment of organic produce including pyrethrum, a potentially cancer-causing substance that happens to be organic. Plus, if an organic farm is located near a non-organic farm, there’s always a chance that pesticides from the synthetic chemically treated land can be carried by the wind to the organic farm. Plus, organic produce can still harbor bacteria including E. coli, notes Marie Claire magazine.
