Organic fruit isn’t ‘needless’ — Janice Knapp-Cordes

In Sunday’s Wisconsin State Journal (10/29/2017), personal finance writer Morgan Quinn advised people to “Save by skipping needless organics,” such as fruits and vegetables with inedible peels.

There are more reasons than personal health to buy organics. I buy “needless organics” to protect the health of farm workers and the planet. I don’t want farm workers to have to handle pesticides and herbicides, and I don’t want these chemicals spread through the soil, water and air of our planet.
