Pesticides on your food.

Find out what's on your food at: whatsonmyfood.org

There’s more stuff in the news every day about the effects of pesticides in our foods.  The website above tells you what is on all kinds of foods.  The information comes from research studies and government data.  It is at least a starting place that may convince you to try to eat as organically as possible.  My husband has type 1 diabetes and Addison’s disease, both of which are auto-immune diseases in which particular hormone systems are being destroyed.  I don’t know, but I suspect that a lifetime of eating foods sprayed with hormone disruptors might have something to do with this.  So if you want to know as well as possible what is on your food, check out the website and also look at http://www.localharvest.org/ to find sources of local organic food in your area.  Just click on the map and it will zoom in on your area.
