We know organic is good for us, but is it worth the higher price tag?

In this video, Sara Snow breaks down exactly what organic means, and why you should start paying attention to this label when you're grocery shopping.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the average American has 29 pesticides present in their bodies since we're constantly exposed to contaminants and pesticides in our food. Yikes. The good news is that you can reverse the damage of these harmful chemicals, and the easiest way to do that is by eating a mostly organic diet.

Watch the video to learn all about the “Dirty Dozen,” the “Clean Fifteen,” and why you don't need to go organic overnight to see the amazing health benefits of eating a cleaner diet.
