Organic vs. Non-organic: Does It Really Matter?

Since raising monarch butterflies, I learned that the caterpillars will only survive on their milkweed host plant IF it is pesticide free.  If it is not, then they will fall off, squirm around, produce green vomit, and die 95% of the time.  It got me thinking, what does our non-organic produce do to our insides if it’s killing an insect?  Yes we are bigger and stronger than they are, but think about it…if those caterpillars are dying, maybe pesticides are slowly killing us too….hmmmm, something to think about.  And what about our kids?  Do we really want our kids ingesting this stuff?  So I did some research on this topic.

We all know that pesticides and other chemicals can cling to the foods we eat, and most of us want to minimize our exposure. That’s why some people buy organic.

Hi!! My name is Cortney Weiss, I am a mom of 2 girls, 3 years apart, and with the same birthdays!! I've been married to my loving, godly husband for over 6 years, and I love health and fitness. I raise monarch butterflies year round which the girls love, and we all learn a lot from their life cycle, the good and the bad. It is my passion to help busy mommies become healthier and fit, work one-on-one with like-minded individuals, and help them to succeed in their health and fitness goals. I look forward to learning more about YOU and helping YOU to live a happier, healthier, fitter life. :)
