Certified Organic

Last week's cover story does a good job looking into organic food, but fails to mention tests that have proven that using manure as fertilizer boosts vitamin B12 in fruits and vegetables (look up A Mozafar). Also, no mention of the fact that because organic frood is usually picked later, when it's more ripe, it tends to be healthier for that reason too. These facts, along with the environmental effects of chemical farming, and the fact that pesticides are found on all produce, but in much higher concentrations on conventionally farmed produce, are enough to make the logical choice to go organic!
