None of the facts which outline the necessity for eating organic can be challanged.
It is particularly important that kids eat organic through their early development stages as various independent studies have shown.
Further evidence confirms this and is presented in our Gmfood and reasons for organic pages. Studies have shown that organic healthy food not only helps development, but also behaviour and concentration.

It has recently been revealed- Colourful stuff can make children crazy: study PARENTS always suspected it but it has finally been proved: when some children eat colourful cupcakes and have fizzy drinks they go wild.A study in the medical journal The Lancet has found evidence of a strong link between children eating artificial food colours and additives and hyperactivity.
The study, published yesterday, monitored 153 children aged three and 144 aged eight or nine who consumed artificial colours or the preservative sodium benzoate, or both, and found a "significantly adverse" effect on their behaviour.
Artificial colours and flavours were suspected of causing overactive, impulsive and inattentive behaviour in children - hyperactivity - as long as 30 years ago, the study said. The claim had been criticised as lacking scientific evidence. The study's findings are clear and, nutritionists say, support stricter controls on manufacturers
The colourings in the study are commonly found in food marketed to children - cartoon-character branded cake, lollies, fruit bars, soft drinks and cordials.
A Sydney University nutritionist, Jenny O'Dea, said "very few" children react to artificial colourings but when they do it is "traumatic" for families.
"I think it's a confirmative study and I think the food industry will have no choice but to respond by taking out some of the artificial colours from foods and I think parents will welcome it," Dr O'Dea said.
Kaye Mehta, of the Coalition on Food Advertising to Children and a Flinders University nutritionist, said Food Standards Australia New Zealand "should look at this information seriously and adjust their standards accordingly".
A spokeswoman for the food standards authority said colouring levels were set for the general population, but they were considering the study to see if any adjustments to standards were needed.
The drinks contained the artificial food colourings sunset yellow (E110), carmoisine (E122), tartrazine (E102), ponceau 4R (E124), allura red AC (E129) and the preservative sodium benzoate.
Panacea will include training and provide consolidation towards a compulsory organic diet in the Panacea proposed curriculum.
