Product Overview

In this timely, supremely practical guide to the question millions of consumers are faced with every day: "To Buy or Not to Buy Organic?" Seattle-based food journalist and former professional chef Cindy Burke helps readers make the right food choices as they make their way through their supermarket. Burke's crucially concerned with the use of pesticides, which are widely used to grow fruits and vegetables and which, even in trace amounts, have been linked to many cancers, infertility and birth defects. Among the topics she covers here (always from an extremely real-world perspective) are how to Know the difference between organic and non-organic food; Heal your body and avoid toxins; Find and buy safe food; Choose foods with the least risk to your health; and Pursue strategies to cut exposure to toxic chemicals.
Because organics have historically been and continue today to be more expensive than conventionally grown or produced food, Burke carefully confronts the key issue of cost--weighing the benefits of good health versus the higher price -- and offers strategies that will maximize your savings while helping to ensure your and your family's health -- and enjoyable eating.
