    What is organic milk?

    I always see organic milk when I'm in the milk section of the grocery. What exactly does it mean? Is it good for you?

    Organic milk means that the environment the cows are in is certified organic. So for example there are no pesticides or chemicals used on the property or in the food the cows are fed.

    So yes, in that sense it does mean the milk is healthier than non-organic milk. As toxins tend to be stored in the fat of animals it is particularly useful to choose organic animal products like dairy and meat. That way we then don't consume the toxins that were consumed by the animals. It is a little more expensive, but I think it's worth it.
