    Like a mofo, never had it until I hit 16, now I'm just full on allergy-girl.

    I wake up at 4am every morning because I seriously need to blow my nose, I can't breathe through my mouth. My nose is so full of gunk that I have lost a portion of my hearing! (Seriously! -30 decibels in each ear lost to eustachian tube blockage!)

    I have tried pretty much everything you can get from the shops (not even exaggerating) and I've found Benadryl and Clarityn to be most effective.

    Am I alone in thinking that 'organic' is just some nonsense buzzword that supermarkets use to justify ramped up prices?

    Well organic means it goes straight from the beehive to the shop none of this silly production messing about, the best organic products come from independent small businesses as you know there less likely to be doing dodgy stuff like the big supermarkets and are honest.

    My best friend grwoing up had terrible hayfever though She couldn't even come to my house without antihistimines because of the horses! Her eyes used to swell shut on a regular basis until she got it seen to by the doctor! It was terrible

    I agree that if you buy fruit an veg somewhere like a market then they are likely to be organic but supermarkets still call all sorts products organic despite using chemicals and additives.
    The definition of the word organic is not made clear and consumers are being duped. People think organic automatically means 'local' and 'good for you', when it just doesn't.

    Thats true that is why I buy my Fruit and Veg from my local farm people who are very organic people and freindly :awesome: but yeah I know people these days think 'look organic, that must mean its great!' but not always.
    All I know is that there is a BIG difference in the fruit and veg in supermarkets and those grown organically and in proper farms.
