Organic Animal Products


Eating fewer animal products is beneficial to your health and also helps the environment. The EPA has reported that certain meats are contaminated with higher levels of pesticides than some plant foods, due to the diet the animals are fed. If you choose to eat animal products, try to purchase them from local, sustainable, and organic farms. Meats you should consider buying organically include beef, pork, and poultry. Some ocean fish carry a high risk of metal contamination, and many freshwater fish are exposed to pesticides from contaminated water.
