Organic Foods; The Better Choice.
Genetically modified foods and mass produced foods are full of chemicals one way or another, with fruit and vegetables still having traces of pesticides in them and because they are grown with unnatural fertilizers the benefits in eating them are reduced.

Look for organic foods, which can even include meats and free range products like chickens, eggs, and vegetables. Doing so creates a bigger demand for these products which has a ripple effect making food producers start working towards producing food products this way rather than unnaturally.
Chemicals used in producing food will thus be used less and less and this will prevent contamination of water tables from toxic runoff, soil contamination and leeching, and the death of insects necessary to keep nature balanced all helping heal our badly damaged environment.
