Juice | The New Drug?

430560794 f8a5c6be00 b Juice | The New Drug?

organicapples The Organic Dilemma | Local vs. Organic
Time Magazine just published a long 5 page article on the debate of what is the better choice, local or organic. Ideal of course is local and organic. Thanks to Jonathan for the tip.
