    Do you choose organics for yourself and your family?

    If not, why? Are you not concerned with pesticides? Have you researched about the dangers of pesticides?

    In the summer, I grow a lot of my own food using organic methods.  In the winter, I use the dirty dozen/clean 15 lists to decide what produce to buy organically.  (Those are the lists of the produce that contains the most/least pesticide residue when grown non-organically.)  I have family members that raise chickens, so I get farm fresh eggs from them, but when their hens aren't laying in the winter, I buy organic, cage-free eggs.  I have started to buy more and more pastured, organic meat.  I recently joined a local food buying co-op and through that am able to source meat from local producers.  I haven't really looked into organic dairy yet.  I probably should.  We drink a lot of milk.  I don't buy much processed food in general, but when I do pick up something like a can of soup, I tend to look to the organic products first.
