1. Pros of Going Organic

One of the benefits of going organic is the certainty that you're receiving foods that were grown or raised using safe practices. Organic produce is grown without the use of sewer waste as fertilizer. This means it contains none of the residues from unethical fertilization methods. To qualify for organic livestock, ranchers aren’t allowed to give their animals any antibiotics or hormones, so you won’t find any of these ingredients in your meats, either.
