Want to know what happens in your body when you switch from eating conventional food to organic?

Watch this powerful 90 second video.

A family that doesn’t buy organic because of the cost eats only organic for two weeks.  In this 90 second video, the impact will astound you.

We need to refinance and restructure our food system. Instead of using taxpayer resources to finance a food system that has been genetically engineered to withstand increasing doses of herbicides, insecticides and pesticides, let’s refinance and structure a food system that makes organic food affordable to all who want it.
