Why This Matters...

Organic: Organic foods are grown and processed according to federal rules that regulate, among other things, soil quality, animal treatment practices, pesticide control and use of additives. Organic foods are those grown with the most natural processes available.[2]

Synthetic Growth Hormone: The FDA allows dairy cows to be injected with genetically engineered growth hormone that prompts them to produce more milk. Synthetic growth hormones can pose a risk to the cow’s health and the impact on human health from drinking such milk is not clearly documented. Cows on organic farms, however, are raised naturally, meaning the milk they produce for dairy products is inherently free of this additive.[3]

Toxic Persistent Pesticides: These pesticides include chemicals that are not only harmful to the earth and humans, but also persist - or take a long time to break down in the environment. In fact, it can take up to decades for some of these pesticides to fully disappear from the environment after their initial application. Luckily, these types of chemicals are banned from organic farming.[1]

Non-GMO: Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are those seeds or processes that rely on scientific manipulation of genetic material. In other words, these are edited products and would not be possible under natural conditions. Such methods are prohibited under organic regulations, which is why the term “non-GMO” was born.[4]

Babies, toddlers and children are more vulnerable than adults to pesticide exposure
