Organic could be your heart, lungs and liver. But, in the world of product labeling it's a slippery and deceptive slope. The term "certified organic" at its most basic means produced without sprays or chemicals. Unfortunately only large agribusiness has the economy of scale to do the paperwork for the certification. Lot's of legitimate organic growers can at best label their product "pesticide free" even though they are using organic methods.
