Organic and “all natural” products are on the rise.  Grocery stores have expanded their free-range, non-toxic options. We’re paying more trying to make healthier choices for our bodies and our world. More women are choosing “natural childbirth” and tossing old plastic Tupperware to avoid toxic leaching.  Are all these efforts really working?  Is there a right way and a wrong way to live “naturally?” Journalist Nathanael Johnsonhas answers.

Also this hour: US Peace Corps Acting Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet joins us to talk about the organization and the three Washington state Universities that rank number one in the nation for student participation. We’ll also talk with officials about the potential service cuts to King County Metro Transit in 2014.
