I was talking to someone last night about organic produce.
I am a huge fan of organic. I do believe strongly that they are healthier for your body and that is why lots of people started choosing organic produce. There are other reasons. you are supporting generally small farmers and produces, using less chemicals means less damage to our environment and it tastes better!
But there are some occasions you do not have the choice. There is a product that you can use to wash the veges and fruits but does it work? I suppose so. But vinegar and baking soda works as well. (and cheaper!)
