Did you know...

Karl just sent me this link from CNN. We believe it is worth paying the extra cost for certain organic products. We have been having so many health issues since Joshua has been born that truly, we don't know what is going on. Is it the food? Is it the environment? Is it the packaging? What is it? That is the big question!!

I have been reading WIN THE WAR WITHIN by Dr. Floyd Chilton and its an eye opener. My health issues as a lot to do with inflammatory and autoimmune. Food has a lot to do with that. I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. You don't want lupus! BUT, I have it and have to learn to live with it.

So, here is a list of the good and bad fruits and veggies. To go organic or not to???? THAT IS THE QUESTION.
