In this modern world, everything is fast-paced. Our work gets instantly done through the use of automation and technology. Our food…instant too! Most people have a hard time preparing for healthy meals, in which they resort to fast food. According to studies, fast food is linked to the increasing number of obese people.
It’s time to get healthy! Turning organic is a smart choice. It promises chemical-free and nutrition-packed products.
Here are 10 reasons why you should go organic today:
A study found out that a person takes about 16 pounds of chemical pesticides every year from the food that they eat. These came from over 600 active chemicals approved for agricultural use. Organic foods use zero chemicals.
On average, organic foods provide 21.1% more iron, 27% more vitamin C, 29.3% more magnesium and 13.6% more phosphorus than inorganically grown foods.
Organic foods deliver better taste due to a higher amount of antioxidants. Synthetic fertilizers in inorganic farming compromise soil quality, thus affecting the product taste.
90% of most common crops are grown through the help of genetically engineered (GE) food and genetically modified organisms (GMO), which contaminate our food supply.
No Unnecessary Hormones
If you are a lover of dairy products, beware as they contain the 90% of pesticides humans consume. Meat, milk, and eggs contain excessive growth hormones.
Organic farming promotes eco-sustenance. According to research, organic farming preserves soil and crop rotation and enhance the ecosystem, suitable for the survival of various species.
Proper Animal Treatment
Conventional livestock suffers inhumane and confined conditions. The animals are also pumped with synthetic hormones. Organic farming allows animals to enjoy free, outdoor space to behave naturally.
Maintain Healthy Soil & Waters
Organic farming does not use agricultural chemicals that contaminate the water supply and destroy land fertility. According to a study, only 0.1% of pesticide reaches pests, while the remaining 99% goes to the environment.
Aside from organic food, natural supplementation is also a smart choice. Herbal medicines are proven to prevent the acquisition of various illness and disorders.
With all that has been said – ‘organic’ means longer life!
