A study reported in Prevention Magazine found that the higher price for organic groceries is worth the price. Kids, ages 2 to 5, who ate a 75% organic diet, had chemicals at a level six times lower in their diet
than kids on a conventional diet. These chemicals cause neurological damage, leukemia and other types of cancer. The chemicals they were looking at are the ones commonly used in agricultural pesticides in the US. So...organic may really pay for children and even adults.
