Since the U.S. Department of Agriculture put into place the long-awaited National Organic Program, American consumers have finally had a set of nationwide standards for organic foods. But new standards raise new questions. What is organic food? What's the relationship between organic food and food labeled with terms like "all-natural, "free-range, "hormone-free, and "locally grown? Are "organic, "made with organic, and "100% organic foods different?And most importantly, is organic food better for me and my family? This handy guide provides a thorough but nontechnical introduction to organic food. Some topics of special interest include product labeling, health and nutrition, environmental quality, and pricing.
