Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: 90 percent of Christmas trees are grown with some sort of pesticide. Might be time to consider going organic on something that will be the centerpiece of the home for the holidays.

This is a question I have asked myself a number of times and I finally have taken the time to find the answer. My understanding is that organic refers to how food is grown whereas natural refers to how food is made/produced or processed. Of course this is an over simplified definition so I'll break it down further...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: If it's "all natural" it's good for me? Right? Not so fast. Natural could mean loads of sugar. Natural could mean bleach. Natural could mean just about anything as regulation for the world natural doesn't exist. Sounds good on the package, but look twice. Organic means organic, which naturally means natural. There is a difference.

Editor's Note from Susan Meyn: Isn't all our writing really part of us? This author speaks to the therapeutic value of writing fiction. Fits even better for those of us who keep journals...and maybe would like to try out some fiction, too!

It’s only natural to get swept up by the allure of products marketed as “natural.” We resonate with that term for a number of reasons: it implies pure, unadulterated goodness. It sounds comforting...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Natural sounds great. Who wouldn't like something natural? Yet the research shows natural might mean processed and straight from a factory to your table. Natural and Organic are not the same thing and might even be a step backward.
