Nabila Khashoggi has been practicing, when ever possible, organic eating for more than a decade.  She and her family take care to ensure that their foods and household products are free of toxic chemicals. In addition to supporting the farmers who produce organic food, Ms. Khashoggi experiences the numerous benefits of toxin-free living and is learning everyday more information in what it takes to be “organic.”

The United States Department of Agriculture has specific guidelines by which foods qualify as organic, beginning with the soil in which they are grown. Conventionally produced foods are grown with the assistance of chemical fertilizers, synthetic insecticides, and synthetic herbicides; by contrast, organic foods are not treated with these chemical and synthetic materials. Animals raised for conventional food are also subject to chemicals via antibiotics, growth hormones, and medications, whereas organic farming promotes a free-range lifestyle designed to reduce disease through biologically natural diets, clean living quarters, and plenty of time outdoors.

Organic might not be for everyone, but it is a good way towards not ingesting chemical ingredients and toxic additives when such ingredients are not necessary to the production of food.
