"In 2005 we enjoyed, for the first time, certified organic farmland in all 50 states." Wow...is organic farmland that new a trend? As recently as 1990, when Congress passed the Organic Foods Production Act, there were fewer than one million acres of organic farmland. In just twelve years, by 2002, that amount had doubled. Then the pace of progress picked up. Within just three more years, the amount of organic farmland doubled again. In 2005 we enjoyed, for the first time, certified organic farmland in all 50 states. It's been exceptional progress, but we can do more.

Dr. Greene's Organic Prescription - the top ten items (okay, 11) where I believe we can make the biggest difference. He has also taken into account reducing the negative effects of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and chemical fertilizers.

Dr. Green has put his top 10 organic recommendations in a suggested order based on their impact and on the ease of the choice. If you want to make only one organic switch for your family, choose number one. If you've already made that switch, and want to do another, move on to number 2, and so on.
