What is organic food?
If you want an answer to this question, it will be enough to make a brief research when you are out shopping in some supermarket. It will be enough to read the labels on the products and you will be surprised in an unpleasant way. You will be able to see that the processed foods that should contain just meat, have many other preservatives and chemicals added along with food colorants that will not do too much good for your health. The challenge comes when you want to buy fruits and vegetables. All of them look like plastic and they taste like plastic as well. As you can imagine this is not organic food. The organic food, also known as bio food, must be entirely natural. It mustn’t contain things like chemicals or other industrial additives.
The main reasons why you should eat organic food
The vegetables and fruits found in supermarkets usually contain traces of pesticides. These pesticides are used so the vegetables production to be bigger. We all know that these veggies are quite perishable. These pesticides makes them last longer. Most all the farmers who choose this way their harvests are very familiar with the term ”increased forced”. These farmers are more interested about their own profit than about people health.
The taste and their aspect is not the only thing that should worry us. The non-organic foods, thanks to all these substances added so they can look better and last longer, can give us many diseases. Many people say that such foods filled with pesticides are to blame for the occurrence of some forms of cancer, diabetes, intestinal disorders, digestive illnesses, a poor immunity level and many other things just as disturbing.
The worse thing is, that not only the harvest that is treated with these chemicals, so it can be much bigger, can be affected. Also, the seeds of these vegetables are affected and even if the veggies who comes from these seeds are not sprinkled with pesticides, thanks to their seeds, they are able to develop their own pesticides to defend themselves. This means that all the genetically modified seeds are just as dangerous as the vegetables sprinkled with these poisoning substances.
The bio food, or the organic food are neurotoxins free. What are these neurotoxins? They are able to damage our brain by attacking the nervous cells. The organic food is filled with nutrients. They contain a bigger quantity of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. All these things are not altered in any way.
You will be able to notice in time that the soil where the bio harvests grow is much healthier and productive than the soil where pesticides are used constantly. These chemicals have the effect as the pollution. It is a polluted soil so in time it may not even give the same yield. At the bottom of the line, growing organic foods will be for both sides’ benefit.
The organic food is maybe the most pure type of food you can ingest. The main difference will be the taste. It will be enough for you to try it at least once and you will see the difference. The organic food is very important for animals as well. Like that, their meat will no longer be infected with all the chemicals their noxious food may have. Some growers choose the easy way for profit but in time, they will lose people trust along with the profit. This means that only the growers who choose the natural way will have everything to win from the other category mistake. All those growing hormones used to obtain unusual big tomatoes, will only get inside our organism and cause just troubles.
How can we make the difference between them?
This is maybe the most encountered question when it comes about organic foods bough from supermarkets and stores. You can find these days dedicated shelves, where the owners of the store put only ”organic products”. You may wonder, how can you be sure it is true? If you are a beginner, it will be quite difficult, considering that many big stores, in chase for their own profit, they are willing to deceive their customers. They know that organic foods are more expensive, so the temptation to lie will be quite big.
Some people may think that the price is the key. Not all the time is this the best guiding criteria. Usually their aspect and their color is the main thing that must draw our attention. If you see unusual big apples or strawberries, it does not mean that they are very tasty. The organic veggies cannot grow like that. If you find a vendor that will allow you to taste his merchandise before buying it will be a very good start. If you are tricked and buy regular food instead of organic, you must change the vendor. Like that, he will lose a client and maybe more than just one and you will no longer be tricked in paying more than it deserves.
The benefits of organic foods
After you read all the things enumerated above, you can clearly see that there are various benefits. The direct ones will be noticed when you will discover that you are much more healthy than before. Not only that you will no longer ingest pesticides and stuffs like that, you will no longer get sick as quickly as you did before. As you can see, even if you will have to pay more for this food, you will no longer pay as much as you did, on meds. You may even save some money if you change your way of eating.
Besides the benefits brought on you, you can also help to save the planet from pollution. If the organic foods industry will grow, and this can happen if the demand increases, the soil will be less polluted and more fertile. This is the reason why you should at least try this alternative.
My name is Aura and I am a very active woman. I like being like that because I consider that I have many things to learn from this life.
The main reason why I started to write, was to increase my income. In time I realized that this was not my real goal. I wanted to prove to me, that I have the ability to communicate through writing with people around the world.
I like the idea of sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people even if sometimes they may not agree with me. This is maybe the most important thing in this job. You must allow other people to come with their own ideas backed up by solid arguments.
Another thing, that made me fall in love with writing, was the fact that I can do, even if I do it in my spare time, something I really wanted to do my entire life. Expressing myself through writing gives me the freedom that I can’ t find when I am at my daily workplace.
With all these things being said, I hope you will find my articles interesting and useful.
