While this may be an added expense that a lot of people aren’t willing to undertake, it can greatly affect on your health and that of your loved ones. If you consume a lot of turkey meat during the holidays, you may wish to choose organic.
Turkey farming is big business, and unless you hunt a wild turkey or get a free-range bird from a local farmer, you really have no way of knowing what has been injected into that bird. Nitrates, hormones, antibiotics? And what about how the bird is killed and processed?
If you must have a turkey this Thanksgiving, promote a more sustainable environment and a healthy family by choosing an organic turkey. The long-term effects on your health may just save you more money in the long run.
