Green Wednesday

Last week I talked about the essential fruits an veggies you need to buy Organic.


Another small change you can do that goes along way in your diet is to buy Organic milk and eggs.

Why Milk?
Studies show that milk with rBGH (artificial growth hormone) cows has higher than normal levels of naturally occurring hormone,IGF-1, that's associated with breast cancer, prostate, and colon cancers.

Fix
Buy Milk that are Certified Organic , which comes from cows that haven't been treated with antibiotics or hormones.
Why  Eggs?
Chicken are routinely administered antibiotics  and many farmers even add arsenic to to chicken feed, which makes it s way into the meat and eggs.

Fix
Buy only certified organic eggs. You will probably find other labels such as "Free Range" or "Cage Free" but that does not mean that the animals are fed antibiotic or hormone free diet.

If you check your Sunday newspaper you can find coupons that will make this products more affordable or you can buy them at BJs and Cosco. 

Let me know if you find this helpful and if you would like to get more tips in how to green your life one baby step at a time.
