The 2 main reasons to choose organic
I'm very passionate about the food I buy and eat and always make sure that my family eats healthy and gets the best nutrition possible.
It wasn't always like that. When I was younger I didn't give food much thought - I generally bought food that looked good and was cheap. I wouldn't have paid the higher prices for organic produce - and that was mainly because I didn't know (or dare I say it - care) about the consequences.
Over the last decade, and especially since becoming a weight loss practitioner, my priorities have changed completely. I now know that what we put into our bodies is tremendously important - not just for the way we look and feel, but also for our health.
Here are the 2 most important reasons for choosing organic food:
1. Your health
If you eat conventional produce, you are likely to eat food that has been
grown with synthetic or chemical fertilizers
sprayed with chemical herbicides to control weeds
sprayed with pesticides to kill insects
possibly genetically engineered
If you eat conventionally raised meat, you are likely to eat meat that has been
given antibiotics to prevent disease
given hormones for faster growth
fed on feed grown with pesticides
