Please do some research regarding your comments. Organic is how food was produced since the beginning of time. Chemicals were not used until the 20th century.
Organic food does not use chemicals of any kind. That is what makes it organic.

I had no idea so many people were uneducated about GMO foods, genetic modification science and how seeds grow, etc. It is eye opening. Tip: If you can...find a local farmers market and find a farmer you trust and buy from him/her...organic non-gmo seeds/food. There are lots of foods in the grocery stores that say non-gmo. Garden of Eatin' chips, Eden brand foods, etc. Buy organic, boycott GMO and grow your own food if/when you can. I am adamantly opposed to GMO seeds and we are stuck with them for now...it is very big problem. Now, the genetically modified alfalfa (hay for animals) is everywhere. This means that the meat/milk/eggs you eat have been raised from animals that were fed genetically modified hay! There is no way out at this point. Someone has to do something!!!! I guess educating as many people as possible is a good thing at this point. It frustrates me to no end....

I think we're seeing a trend here: peer reviewed studys showing the negative health effects of GMO's and now countries like Ireland are banning them outright.
The only obstacle is... Monsanto.
