Yes, and there's still some concern hormones in milk could be a factor in breast cancer. I may be naive in this, but I'm not nearly as concerned about the use of pesticides and herbicides as I am growth hormones in foods. Were it not for such chemical agents used on crops, there would be far less food and considerably higher prices. In a world where millions of children go to bed hungry, this is a concern.

But, while I purchase as little non-organic meats as possible, I don't take as much care with my produce. Properly washed, it shouldn't be a problem, IMO. So while I'll watch for more info about arsenic levels in brown rice, that occurs naturally . . .and pay closer attention to brown rice syrup in Isabella's food/treats, I won't avoid it all together until there's been more research.
