That's right so what's the difference and what should you -- here now to explain search all it.
Health and fitness expert could -- it's -- -- businesses and it really it's organic food have been climbing every year since 2000 while sales of conventional food have been pretty flat.
70% of all Americans by some organic food on a weekly basis so that's huge.
Every source all that mean you're absolutely right Wal-Mart outsells the country -- organic -- cost us and so it's pretty surprising not just that small stores and more -- me something or again.

So when you see this USDA organic seal want something.
It means that it can contain no pesticides fertilizers preservatives artificial -- genetically modified ingredients.
So there's a lot of there's a lot of analysts at that now when you see here organic seal on me like -- like this chicken in need to have no antibiotics or hormones.
It also means that it was -- a grass theme that it's meant -- not an industrial feed that's loaded with chemicals and animal by products of and as you know access to the outdoors and -- -- a little better does it's mean it's healthier for us to eat.
Yes it does because you're not -- in those chemicals in an -- -- -- and and preservatives.
Now the FDA proposals for -- some food but there's mounting research to show that there actually.
Not that -- threaten that they can cause disease and birth of patents and other health problems now it's not that.
One you know non organic beef and chicken is gonna kill you it's day after day year after year when you're eating this kind of support and best products to look for when -- going organic you're buying again -- the actual -- the top is organic beef up organic -- Right so you cattle are fed growth hormones.
No other country very few westernized countries ally in the world allow growth hormone to be given to caps except in the US.
So growth hormone has been linked to cancer so it's it's not good and then another reason is the feed that they cows are given its.
-- with pesticides an animal by products and that shows up in the no particular economic get a ticket in the same feat but it doesn't those assets that passed in the -- -- with a little bit better so that your choice is between the thing.
Ticking down -- iPad I you have several products here when you go through some of these and explain your and I want you to hit.
The associates found that 99% of all samples tested -- out samples tested contain pesticide residues.
That again is from the from what the cows eat so buying organic milk is really important butter and it's the same thing.
What did you -- -- you can I imported.
-- from from Europe or from Canada it's a hit it conventional if again they don't have those hormones and OK this farms are smaller so it's a little bit they must get to the -- the ground.
What this is this isn't done this is to show you a lot of people think that organic food has -- -- around you know customer panic and as much of that -- totally healthy.
This organic granola and that -- regular generic kernel from -- up.
The same number calories same number of sodium scenes I've ever seen an animal brains.

-- They don't last as long.
No org and organic food in general doesn't last long because it doesn't have the preserve -- -- so that is a problem.
But with fruits and vegetables and you you don't have to buy everything organic what you should prioritize is that that hat has it.
Has -- get where -- eat the skin like apples or you can't kill off the skin like spinach and salary and -- -- -- Actually those five.
Apples peaches spinach celery and -- and are the five most contaminated okay so that's was what you really in the last but not least organic -- It has to go to pesticide residues in samples of this surprising me and Brett and and you divide batter him but me.
