Organic food does not necessarily

Organic foods are the fastest growing segment of the food business - Because so many of us eat "real" instead of additives like, but also allows the type of the USDA regulations, we are now paying That extra dollar and still eat food that pesticides and other chemicals. If you're a label reader, you pay extra for organic and you know these terms:

100% Organic - should not contain chemicals, additives, plastics, pesticides or genetically modified material.

USDA Organic - contains 95% organic ingredients. May contain plastic, they are''in a list approved.

Made with organic - 70% organic.

All labels are required, the list of organic and inorganic ingredients. 100% USDA and labels must state the name of organic certification.

Farmers, the organic label, but it will also decide to use fertilizers or pesticides banned 'look' of certification standards are relaxed to find.

Many of the "rules" on organic foods are subject to interpretation. For example, dairies selling milk as organic when it comes from cows that have "access to" pasture, even if they are denied access.

Truly organic dairy farmers who actually keep the cows are a lot of problems in price competition with large confinement dairies, cows from a "pasture" may, for a few minutes one week turn around. And of course the consumer pays for both the "false" organic milk for the real thing.

More worrying is the fact that 90% of organic food for children now contain additives, said increased brain and vision are.

These additives have been banned a few years ago, but it was a program manger for the USDA formula lobbying by the creators, dismissed his staff and approved additives. If your organic baby food label boasts that it contains DHA and ARA, it is possible to feed the children, synthetic fatty acids, which have been rejected, was convinced by the program manager, "to enable it.

These fatty acids are often known by a potential neurotoxin, such as hexane - a product that will probably not be approved, if someone was looking for.

When a USDA deputy administrator must approve this plan, he said, because the formula makers, that these fatty acids was not the list of previously agreed as a result of mere oversight. He said the law prohibits the use of hexane, the treatment is organic foods, but does not extend the prohibition on processing of synthetic additives.

Other products of green and white label "USDA Organic prevent the cheese, wood, paper and organic duck faux aggregation, which contains a synthetic substance, there is a true story contains.

I'm sure there are others in similar settings for the USDA deputy administrator who was OK to allow the use of additives in hexane has decided to produce baby food, but after reading about this woman, I see it as the fox guarding the Chicken Coop. In an interview, said to have been seen in the federal program purpose "of the sector to grow," and thought the dispute was about plastics in organic food, mostly ridiculous. "

I think this lady needs a job to do something other than protecting the American consumer. What do you think?
