Nowadays everybody talks about healthy living and the food we should eat to be healthy and feel better.Organic food is in almost every store,but can we afford it? I went to Publix to buy some veggies and fruits two days ago and was astonded by price of the organic tomatoes.They cost $ 3 dollar each! Is it so expensive to grow organic tomatoes?
I don't know how much does it cost to grow organic tomatoes,but I used to live in Europe and there you can buy 4 pounds of organic tomatoes for 3 dollars. I would like the stores to justify the prices of their organic products,why they are so expensive?Maybe they are taking advantages because the people are tend to spend more money when it comes to their health.That is a new gap in the food market so companies are benefiting from it.I hope you will agree with me that we have to know what makes the organic food so expensive.You buy a gallon of gaz for under $3 and at same time you pay the same amount of money for one organic tomatoes.Is the cost for growing a tomatoe and drilling for a petrol the same?I don't think so .I used to live in a house and had a garden in my backyard where we used to grow vegetables,and believe me it wasn't expensive.

I would think that if we were to cut government down to constitutional levels , everything would be much less expensive and everyone who wanted to work would be working.You could have anything that would make your pursuit of happiness achievable.
