This one is probably the most misleading health food buzzword out there because "natural" likely doesn't mean what you think it means. In fact, according to the FDA, [https://healthinfluencer.net/lunexia-sleep-aid-review/ Lunexia Sleep Aid Review] it doesn't mean anything at all - the FDA does not define or regulate the term on food products. The USDA loosely defines what natural means for meat products as not having artificial preservatives (which doesn't mean it doesn't have any preservatives - salt is found naturally in the earth after all), coloring ingredients, and it should be minimally processed.

Here's the problem: meat from animals treated with strange hormones while they were alive can still technically be considered natural. Also, the enforcement of companies who make "all natural" claims isn't very stringent, so it's largely up to the producer to define what natural is. My recommendation: ignore any advertisement that says "all natural" and investigate the product on your own by taking a look at the ingredients list.

Food labeled as organic is much more stringently regulated than food labeled as all natural; and the "Certified USDA Organic" seal can only be used after a company undergoes an approval process and frequent inspections by USDA inspectors. There's a lot to the definition of what is and is not organic, but basically produce cannot be grown with synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, etc.

And the pest control process cannot use certain chemicals. Meat must be fed with organic feed, have access to the great outdoors, and they cannot be given growth hormones or antibiotics. Again, that's a very brief definition, but organic food is more what you think of when you think of food being made naturally. If this is important to you, then you should spend the extra money on organic foods and visit Farmer's Markets, but realize that organic is not synonymous with healthy. You can make organic cookies or other
