Orga Foods: The Benefits of Organic Food
Organic has been the next big trend for a few years now. People are done living unhealthy lives, and with the obesity crisis in the United States, more people are making the switch. Now many people don’t know much about the benefits of organic foods.
All they know is that its more expensive, and only rich people can seem to afford it. But most people don't know you can get organic food for cheap actually. With more and more people are making the switch, every single day. It's starting to drive the price down!
But let's talk about the benefits of organic foods, and how it can help you, your family and the world!
Health benefits of Organic
People are switching to organic more and more these days because they simply just feel better. Studies have shown that non-organic foods are much riskier to consume than organic. They're sprayed with pesticides that can be extremely harmful to you and your body.
Pesticides are infamous for the health problems they cause such as cancer, reproductive issues and the detriment to your immune system. Your body is your temple and you should treat it like one. Like a well-maintained car, you should always get an oil change. Pesticides are essentially filling your vehicle with the wrong fuel.
When pesticides are present in foods they suppress your phytochemical production which means there is less nutritional content gained, and fewer antioxidants present in the food. So you can feed yourself non-organic for cheap right now.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” A quote by Hippocrates the great Greek physician. This quote has, even more, standing today with the current health crisis in America.
And in my opinion, most of the problems can be solved by going organic!
One of the bigger controversies in non-organic good is GMO’s. GMO stands for Genetically modified organisms. GMO’s were introduced to be helpful to make crops last longer, grow bigger, and be more resistant to bugs. But somewhere along the way they went too far and created genetically modified monsters that are extremely harmful to the human body.
One harmful effect of GMO’s is that it’s more likely to trigger allergic reactions in people. A particular strain of soybean was genetically modified to have Brazil nut in it. A certain kind of protein synthesized with soybeans that were supposed to be beneficial. But when they tested it they found that it was triggering allergic reactions in people. It was never brought to market because of this incident. So if you have any type of allergy try going organic and you may soon see it disappear. :)
The scary thing about GMO’s is the potential cancer-causing effects it can potentially cause. Studies have been done on GMO foods and many controversial documentaries have been made to address these issues. But the connections are deemed inconclusive because it seems in this day and age everything seems to cause cancer.
But going organic will help your body with antioxidants and improve your immune system to fight these cancers.
