The Egg or the GMO's

I have eaten all different types of eggs. I can honestly tell you in my opinion that buying eggs directly from a farm is the best way to obtain eggs, but not everyone is able to do that. The next best way is to buy the cages free, non-GMO, orgain eggs. I know they are a bit more expensive, but it is so worth your family's health and the well being for the chickens. Here are some of the reasons why.

THE GOOD STUFF
USDA-certified organic eggs must be fed organic, non-GMO feed, free of antibiotics and pesticides. Additionally, they must be kept uncaged in barns or warehouses with access to the outside.


THE BAD STUFF

 Be aware that cage-free may sound nice, but it doesn't necessarily mean happy chickens. Though cage-free chickens must be kept outside of cages with access to food and water, they do not have to have access to the outdoors. Also, their feed does not have to be organic.
