What is Organic Food?

14 Feb

Organic Fruits and Vegetables

These are the ones grown from seeds which are not genetically modified, in a soil rich in nutrients, without the addition of chemical fertilizers. Crops are not sprayed with synthetic chemicals like pesticides and neither irradiation or gas are used.

There have been some studies which demonstrate that harmful pesticides are stored in greater quantities in people consuming conventional produce, as opposed to those consuming organics.

Organic Livestock

Animals have to be born and raised on organic land and fed organic. They are hormone and drug free. Antibiotics can only be given during an infectious outbreak.

Make sure when buying organic meats, eggs and dairy that they are also free range, this means the animals are not confined, they spend time outdoors.

So is organic better?

Of course it is! Nutrition-wise and also because we are not eating the chemicals, additives, hormones, drugs, pesticides, and genetically modified components. I believe organic is good for the planet as well.

So… give organic food a chance, I am convinced you will never go back.

Eat healthy, be happy!
