You are what you eat. This adage is partially true. The real truth is that you are what your food eats. When your food eats pesticides, additives, sweeteners or flavor enhancers, you are eating these as well. Traditional canned fruits, vegetables, and other foods may contain ingredients such as MSG, high-fructose corn syrup, sodium nitrate, aspartame or even mercury. These harmful, even poisonous, chemicals are present in an overwhelming number of canned foods. Chemical preservatives can be linked to many illnesses and diseases.
Organic produce is natural and pesticide-free. It contains higher levels of nutrients, beta-carotene, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. In fact, organic produce may contain 20-40% more nutrients than non-organic foods.
Animals fed organic diets are hormone-free and have lower rates of disease and contamination. Organic animals are not fed manure, blood or waste. Organic animals are healthier, happier and raised and slaughtered more humanely.
Eating organic food is a very simple lifestyle change that you can do with a number of proven health benefits. Rates of autism, migraines, ADD, diabetes, heart disease, allergies and even cancer may be lowered by eating organic food. The simple switch to organic produce and meats may just save your life.
