In the rush to produce more and more crops to satisfy growing demand producers have had to resort to using a lethal cocktail of pesticides to control disease and insect attack. Good news for their bank balances perhaps but not good news for your health; this is why you need to be informed of the advantages of organic food.
Did you know that if you consumed an average apple you would be eating over 30 pesticides, even after you have washed it?
The quality of food has definitely gone down since the Second World War. For instance, the levels of vitamin C in today’s fruit bear no resemblance to the levels found in wartime fruit.
Organic food is known to contain 50% more nutrients, minerals and vitamins than produce that has been intensively farmed.
You will have to eat more fruit nowadays to make up the deficiency, but unfortunately that means eating more chemicals, more detrimental effects on your health eating something that should be good for you! Also don’t forget about the cocktail of anti-biotic and hormones that cattle and poultry are force fed.
What happens to those chemicals when the animal dies?
Digested and stored in human bodies is the answer, have you seen pictures of animals in severally cramped conditions in battery farms? It just does not make sense to state that any animal kept in these conditions is healthy and produces high quality food. If you are as worried as I am about the health of your family then you need to consider converting your family to the organic lifestyle with the organic food information you are going to learn on this site. Trust me, once you try some organic produce and taste an apple the way it should be, and perhaps how you recall it tasting in your youth, you will never go back to mass produced fruit again.
