Locally grown food

A lot of people confuse the term “organic food” with the term “locally grown”. These two are NOT interchangeable. Just because something is locally grown does not mean it is organic, GMO-free, pesticide-free – or better in any way than other foods for that matter. In fact, the University of Florida found that 22% of consumers incorrectly thought “Locally Grown” means non-GMO. All in the world “Locally Grown” means is that it was grown nearby – supposedly… Organic food does not have to be produced locally to be organic but it does have to be GMO-free and pesticide free. One huge advantage of buying organic is that it reduces toxic exposure to synthetic pesticides. Another huge advantage to buying “Locally Grown Organic” is that better quality food can be grown and transported less expensively from elsewhere. “Get to know your local farmer” is my mantra.

If it kills bugs it can usually kill humans too.
