Lately it seems that society is leaning more towards organic products than inorganic ones. There are many arguments that organic milk is better than regular inorganic milk. Despite the more expensive price, there are 6 main reasons that people choose organic milk over non-organic milk.

  1. It doesn't contain any additives. A problem with a lot of foods these days is that they contain many additives, especially when it comes to natural foods that are grown on a farm. Unlike cows in which inorganic milk comes from, organic cows haven't been treated or fed with anything that's been treated with antibiotics, pesticides or any other type of hormones to help their growth. Cows that organic milk comes from have a natural diet of grass, as opposed to growth-hormone induced cows. This means that the milk you get from them is 100% completely natural.
  2. Excellent source of nutrients. Organic milk has a higher percentage of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA). CLA is a fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. It's a nutrient that has been linked with, not only decreasing heart disease and diabetes, but aiding in weight loss as well. Organic milk is also a greater source of calcium than inorganic milk. Organic milk contains about 300 mg per eight-ounce glass and is one great way to help kids get the calcium they need. Organically flavored milks, such as chocolate and strawberry, are popular options for kids, too
  3. 3. Organic milk is wholesome. Organic milk, like mentioned above, contains no additives or harmful ingredients meant to make it look better or taste better. Even after organic milk sours, it still remains wholesome while inorganic milk turns putrid when it sours.
  4. Organic milk lasts longer. You may not have noticed, but next time your at the grocery store, look and compare the expiration dates on inorganic and organic milk. Organic milk lasts almost twice as long as inorganic milk without turning sour. It can often last up to a month if refrigerated in the right way.
  5. So if you want to be just a little bit healthier and help out a cow, drink organic milk.

I would like to think you would at least not preach unproven items such as organic is healthier. There is little if any scientific evidence that "organically" produced products are healthier. In most cases it is just social fear.

The other thing, all cow milk is organic as it is a carbon based food. At least have the knowledge to label it as non-organically raised cow milk if you insist on using the "organic" marketing wording.
