One of the best ways to improve the health of your family is also one of the easiest things you can do: Buy organically grown foods as often as you can find and afford them. That said, you may get some arguments from "experts" on the airwaves who have cited a recent British study that concluded there was no nutritional difference between more costly organic and conventionally grown foods.
When a friend or family member tells you how costly organic foods are in comparison to their perceived health value, however, remind them the study in question didn't measure the toxic load of pesticides contained in conventionally grown foods which can be considerable, according to a report from The Organic Center.
A great source for affordable and healthy whole foods is your neighborhood farmer's market. If you don't know where to find them in your area, you'll want to check out our recent story on farmers markets.
