Organic refers to the way farmers grow and process products such as fruits, vegetables, grains dairy and meat. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and is designed to encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. Farmers who grow organic produce and meat don’t use typical methods to fertilize or use conventional pesticides.
So why is it important for you to go natural?
Organic food is easier for your body to process because it is free of unknown chemicals used in pesticides, artificial coloring and flavor, preservatives, artificial sweeteners and other food additives. There has not been enough long term testing done to see how these foreign and genetically engineered products affect our bodies. Another benefit of going organic is that products don’t contain any hormones, antibiotics or genetic modification; farmers don’t allow their livestock to routinely receive antibiotics or give them feed that contains any animal by products. Eating organic products means you are much less likely to be ingesting these harmful chemicals. Eliminating this waste from the foods you eat will reduce the risk of health issues and certain types of cancer.
