Food Labels - What Are You Eating?
Organically grown fruits and vegetables are as much as 25% more nutritious.  Just as importantly, organic produce is also safer for consumption because it is not treated with synthetic insecticides and herbicides and is not grown in nutrient-depleted soil that has been treated with chemical fertilizers.

Additionally, organic produce cannot be grown from genetically modified or engineered seeds.

Organic produce grown according to strict government standards often bears the USDA Organic Label.
