Organic. Why bother?

Standard

Are organic foods really worth the hype and the extra money? I am gonna break it down quickly for you. Reasons for organic:

1. No harmful pesticides. Many of these pesticides cannot be washed off of the produce–as they penetrate the entire vegetable. Would you sprinkle DEET on your popcorn?

2. No GMOs. That is genetically modified organisms. If you aren’t clear on what those are, don’t feel bad. Even the scientists who created them can’t predict what will happen to humans when they are consumed. Monsanto created the ‘Round Up Ready’ soybean and corn. This means that the powerful pesticide will kill everything around it except the the GM bean. Great, you think. Not really. These crops have been modified so that if an insect eats it, the insect’s insides are destroyed. But it’s OK for humans to eat it? I’m no rocket scientist, but….

3. They taste better and have more nutritional value. Without a doubt!

4. The meats you consume are not over treated with powerful antibiotics. They are also humanely treated–not crammed into slaughter houses and mired knee deep in waste. Happy animals produce happy food. Eat grass-fed, free range.

Take a look at this experiment. It left me speechless. If this doesn’t confirm the data, nothing will. Way to go Elise!

Love yourself, love your family. Buy organic. It just might be the best weapon in your arsenal against disease.

OH, and drink your organic juice everyday. It is super power that helps combat the environmental toxins we can’t help but consume.  See you at The GEM.
