Yet another great reason to go organic...

In today's news, there's a story about 'cloned' foods being mixed in with other conventional food products without any other additional warnings or notifications to the consumer.

However, all foods that carry the USDA Organic label on them will be the only true way to differentiate between what is real and what is cloned.

From MSNBC: "Cloning is taboo to Organic Valley, the country's biggest organic farming cooperative...."

"This is absolutely prohibited in our world. It goes against everything we believe," said George Siemon, CEO of the 700-member cooperative. "Organic is based on having plenty with what nature's given us."

You can check out our most recent segment from the Green Festival at where we feature Organic Valley (amongst other organic, sustainable, fair-trade and hemp based companies and products).

So yet another great reason to go organic!
