Why Eat Organic
There are many reasons that it’s important to eat organic foods in these modern times, and it has become a huge priority for us health nuts! Fortunately our ancestors never had to worry about getting organic, that’s all there was! They had much different problems, like getting food to eat, period!!!
First off, organic foods are much higher in nutrient content, and they taste so much better too! Organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and minerals like magnesium, chromium, iron, and calcium. Foods that have been sprayed with pesticides are commonly considered neurotoxins and are damaging to the brain and nerve cells. So, needless to say, organic foods are free of neurotoxins! Isn’t that great?!
As for as the little ones, eating organic is extremely important to get the vital nutrients that support healthy brain and body development! They are far more susceptible to toxins than adults, so eating foods that are free of pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is crucial for creating a healthy life.
And if that isn’t reason enough, then read on for a few more reasons to consider! Being supportive of eating organic also supports wildlife habitats. Their exposure to pesticides is harmful and impactful, so let’s be mindful of the other creatures we share this planet with
Eating organic may also reduce cancer risk. It’s reasonable to think that rapidly increasing rates of cancer are at least partly linked to the use of carcinogenic pesticides, rite?
So let’s feed our bodies what they deserve! Lets eat real food and enjoy food as nature intended! Keep calm, and paleo on!
