    Do you pay a little bit more in the grocery store in order to pay less at the doctor's office? Do you really know if you're getting organic foods?

    Guest blogger, Robyn O'Brien, founder of AllergyKids and author of The Unhealthy Truth, shares with us the truth behind the term "organic in this article, "What Does "Organic" Really Mean? "

    I have often wondered what the difference was between organic and "regular" foods. It seems there are varying opinions among friends and peers of what you are buying when you pay those extra buck to buy organic.

    Check out this article and learn how the term came about and what it really means to you and I.

    Do you buy organic? Why or why not? What does organic mean to you?
