Do you pay a little bit more in the grocery store in order to pay less at the doctor's office? Do you really know if you're getting organic foods?
Guest blogger, Robyn O'Brien, founder of AllergyKids and author of The Unhealthy Truth, shares with us the truth behind the term "organic in this article, "What Does "Organic" Really Mean? "
I have often wondered what the difference was between organic and "regular" foods. It seems there are varying opinions among friends and peers of what you are buying when you pay those extra buck to buy organic.
Check out this article and learn how the term came about and what it really means to you and I.
Do you buy organic? Why or why not? What does organic mean to you?View Thread
Sorry for the late reply and to hear of the health issues you've had to deal with. I'm sure more members will be chiming in soon!
It can be sooo frustrating when you're doing everything "by the book" and the weight just won't come off. I hope your appointment with the Endo when well. Please let us know the results and share what you learned with the community.

You may have noticed some changes that happened to your Exchange after last weekeend. We rolled out a few new features and added back the ability for you all to add signatures to your posts.
Here are some of the new things to check out:
Finding Expert Content – On the front page of an Exchange you will now see “Includes Expert Content” if an expert has responded in a thread. So, if you’re just looking for expert feedback you can find it more easily.
Signatures – If you visit your Exchange Profile page you will now see a place to add your signature. You can add a different signature to each Exchange you join, so that it’s a more personalized experience.
TRIGGER – Moderators can now add a TRIGGER notation to a post. So, if you come across a post that you think needs a TRIGGER, send the link to our mods at ExchangeManagement@WebMD.net and someone will take a look and add TRIGGER if necessary.
Guest Experts and Sponsored Guests – Very soon we hope to be adding guest experts to some of our moderated Exchanges. These will be experts who are available for a limited time to answer questions about specific aspects of a topic. For instance, there might be a diabetes diet expert visiting the Diabetes Exchange. You may also notice “Sponsored” guests. These are experts that may be nominated by one of our site sponsors, and they will answer in much the same way as a guest expert, but it will be clear that their content is from a sponsor.
We hope that you like these new additions, and we welcome your comments and suggestions as well. Our product and engineering teams are already hard at work on even more changes and additions that have been suggested by our members, and we hope to have those ready soon.
Please feel free to write to us at ExchangeManagement@WebMD.net and let us know what you think.
