Food Brands we Recommend:
Food grown without using any fertilizers, pesticides, and other synthetic additives and animal products that is free of antibiotics and hormones. Today, most of the grocery stores or grocery websites have an organic section that is easily accessible and affordable.
Why do we say that eating organic food over conventional is a smart choice?
Here are few benefits:
● If you eat organic, that means your exposure to the herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers and synthetic additives is limited. The use of toxic herbicides like glyphosate has increased 15 times since GMOs were introduced. While the World Health Organization announced that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” there is still some controversy over the level of health risks posed by the use of pesticides. This glyphosate is considered to possess estrogenic activity and can be especially harmful to estrogen positive cancers. It can also have other possible negative implications on our health.
● It’s said to be better for the environment as well! Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility and use less energy. Farming without synthetic pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals as well as people who live close to farms.
● Organic is not genetically modified. GMOs have been linked to increased food allergens and gastro-intestinal problems in humans. While many people think that altering the DNA of a plant or animal can increase the risk of cancer, the research has so far proven inconclusive.
● Animal products are said to possess better omega-3 fatty acid content and are free of antibiotics and hormones.
