Organic Eating - Why Bother?
Originally, all foods were "organic" - grown and prepared without pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, hormones, irradiation to prevent spoilage, and microwave cooking.
Our food these days, whether of vegetable or animal origin, is not only deficient in
nutrients but also full of pollutants and farm chemicals. The modern denaturing of
foods through massive refining and chemical treatment deeply affects their

getting from our food.
Not only are they not giving us that KICK that we need, but many EnergyPoor?
foods could actually be making us sick. As pesticides get lodged and increase in our
tissues, the immune system becomes weakened, allowing other carcinogens and
pathogens to affect our health. Yuck!
Top five reasons to shop and eat organic foods
1. Fresh organic produce contains on average 50% more vitamins, minerals,
enzymes and other micronutrients than intensively farmed produce.
2. If you eat dairy or meat products, eating organic has never been more essential to
safeguard your health. Intensively reared dairy cows and farm animals are fed
dangerous antibiotics, growth hormones, anti-parasite drugs and many other
medicines on a daily basis, whether they have an illness or not. These drugs are
passed directly onto the consumers of their dairy or meat, which contribute to
meat-related diseases like coronaries and high blood pressure.
3. Organic produce simply tastes better. Fruit and vegetables are much more full of
flavor. Experiment with an organic carrot and a conventionally grown carrot. Which
4. Organic food is not really more expensive than intensively farmed foods, as we
pay for conventional foods through our taxes. We spend billions of dollars every
year cleaning up the mess that agrochemicals make in our natural water supply.
5. The few extra cents you pay for organic food may save you hundreds, if not
thousands of dollars in doctors' bills.
