Dr. Oz: The Headlines Are Wrong. Organic Foods Are Healthier and Healthier For Our Kids. Aren’t Our Kids Worth The Extra Money?

Blueberries10-4-2012 Dr. Oz weighs in on the new study making the headlines that imply that organic food may not be healthier than conventional food.

He feels that the pesticides in food is a threat to our children’s health.  Dr. Oz believes that eating organic foods is one of the best ways to avoid exposure to this health threat and therefore organic food is worth the investment!

  • about 1/2 tablespoon raw unpasteurized honey
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • one half ripe banana
  • generous spoonful of yogurt
  • about 1/2 cup milk
