How Dr. Oz Got It Wrong on Organics | Mother Jones

If you buy organic fruits and veggies that are local and in season they usually cost no more than
Commercially grown foods and sometime are even less because they are sourced closer to home.  Shop the bulk section of your coop or grocery store and stay away from the processed food isles.  Like any good shopper watch for sales. I have recently noticed that even a large store like Safeway is getting more into the Organics and non-GMO bandwagon by labeling things clearer. They have even gone so far as to make sure that consumers know that if a fruit or vegetable has that little sticker on them that starts with a 9 it is organic, if it starts with another number it is not.

    Alas, this is not the case in Germany: even if I buy in season and am prepared to ride my bike to the local farm to collect, organic food still costs twice as much as the supermarket. That’s one reason we have a garden: to try and redress the balance.

      Thanks for the comment, sometimes I miss the “global reality”. Yes I garden here with my friends and we all share and then try to connect with others locally that do as well.
