Why spend the money on organic food?
Food the way Mother Nature made it is clean and wholesome. Your body knows just what to do with it. Organic food doesn’t contain toxins like pesticides, heavy metals, dangerous industrial chemicals (for example, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives). And everything in it is natural: it’s real food, not "Franken-food" created in a laboratory for profit regardless of the fact that genetically modified, synthetic foods have massive, well-known health hazards.
Standard food is laced with toxic industrial chemicals and additives because of the way it is grown, packaged, produced and manufactured. Its nutrient density (the amount of good stuff you get in the food you eat) is much lower than organic food while all of those industrial toxins are left in. As a species we have encountered the 100,000+ chemicals added to toxic food and our toxic environment in the last seventy years or so. Our bodies do not know what to do with these poisons which are decreasing our health and quality of life. We eat these foods and then wonder why we are depressed, lethargic, and anxious. And if the food has had its genetic make-up contaminated by scientists who have changed the DNA of food with viruses, non-food genes, and insect and human genetic bits and so on, our bodies have no way at all to deal with this unnatural food.
Eating organic food is healthier and tastes better. The only catch is the price, when eating organics the grocery bill will add up. The questions is what is more important eating the food you should be eating and feeling better or the new lap top, cell phone you can text message with, or some other trinket people think they need. Processed organic food usually contains only organic ingredients. If non-organic ingredients are present, at least a certain percentage of the food's total plant and animal ingredients must be organic (95% in the United States and Australia) and any non-organically produced ingredients are subject to various agricultural requirements. Foods claiming to be organic must be free of artificial food additives, and are often processed with fewer artificial methods, materials and conditions, such as chemical ripening, food irradiation, and genetically modified ingredients. Pesticides are allowed so long as they are not synthetic.
