I would choose an organic veggie box if possible.
Non-organic veg can be sprayed with fluoride and human waste products,
pesticides and herbicides. NPK fertiliser makes plants grow huge but
prevents the uptake of minerals from the soil. Compare an organic veg
in size to a non-organic one - organic ones usually smaller in size. If the
farmer growing the food does not put minerals back into the soil, its not
going to be in the veg you eat.
Veg grown with fertilisers and pesticides might look great as in no insect
damage and large produce but it has no flavour and high water content.
Grow some of your own food or find a veg wholesaler locally and trace
back where your veg is from.
The more you dig down the food supply chain the scarier it gets.
