Anti Aging Whole Foods grow in the farmer's fields, your garden and

So this begs the question, "Are the fruits, dark green and yellow/orange vegetables, whole grain seeds, legumes and nuts that are available in my supermarket considered whole foods?"

The following are some of the conventional foods that seem to absorb the greatest amount of chemicals.

The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows:
Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.
Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.
Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.
Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards.
Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
Organic whole foods contribute to the health of you, your family and the sustainment of our planet.
Labeling of anti aging whole foods is confusing to say the least.
Let's look at the meaning of those labels. Thankfully, there is a standard definition that has not been corrupted by interpretation.
The USDA has four specific labeling criteria for organic products. When the label reads--
When a product contains less than 70% organic ingredients, the organic ingredients may be listed on the side panel of the package. Organic claims cannot be listed on the front of the package.
The Certified Organic Seal is specific to the location that it is intended to represent as an assurance of the quality and integrity of the organic product. For example United States and Australia display seals that are universally identifiable.
