Organic is "Always" Better

        Had a very informative tip passed along to me about my carrot juice posting by a dear friend.  And she is absolutely right!  I should have included the fact that cancer patients should always strive to use organically grown foods. Here is a definition of "organic" that I obtained from the following website

Organic food is produced by farmers who avoid the use of bio-persistent nonselective chemical pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers.

With that being said, many organic foods still might have been grown with the use of pesticides, but in a much smaller quantity.

I usually do look for the certified organic label when buying some of the fruits and veggies for my husband.  Of course in most cases you will pay more for organic, so like most of us, it's not always the norm to buy all of our produce from the organic section, but at least, try to buy the foods that you are consuming in your fight against cancer.

Thanks for checking in...I will be posting about the new type of herb that was passed along to me by another friend within the next couple of days.  It's been a bit of a problem trying to find it, but once I do, I'll let you know.

Take care everyone!  And please keep any comments you might have coming my way as I always enjoy hearing your input.  I am just a novice and we are all in this together in our fight against cancer so don't ever hesitate to let me know about any of your ideas.
