Organic farming optimizes nature by using sustainable and renewable resources and methods. In contrast to conventional techniques, organic farming refrains from using chemical pesticides, sewage sludge, synthetic fertilizers, bioengineering, or ionizing radiation.

If you can’t buy organic, remember that the benefits of eating your fruits and veggies far outweigh the risks associated with pesticide exposure.
