Why eat organic? Agricultural chemicals are connected to the rise in cancer over the years and the cumulative exposure to these chemicals contributes to other degenerative and neurological diseases.
The organic varieties of grain and produce contain more nutrients than the non-organic varieties. Over 200 nutrients are present in un-farmed and rich native soil. The typical fertilizers may only contain 3 nutrients. Nutritional content is fundamentally significant when it comes to fighting toxicity and associated free radical damage.
Watch out for the following non-organic produce. The reasons for the higher amounts of pesticides have to do with the type of delivery used:
- green beans
- leafy greens
- sweet bell peppers
Eat as much organic food as possible to avoid exposure to growth hormones, antibiotics and the effects associated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Pay the extra bit for organic produce because in the end, conventional food might cost you your health.
