Some people are unsure about the true nutritional value of organic foods. You may be one of the many citizens who wonder if they should be shelling out extra cash for organic foods given that you are unsure whether or not it really is healthier for you. Well here’s the deal: The same nutritional value may be found in organic and non-organic foods, but organic foods don’t contain pesticides, chemicals, or superbug which can be deadly. Check this out:
Benefits Of Kids Going Organic
In terms of kid’s nutrition, it may be smart to buy some organic fruits and vegetables because it may help protect them against disorders like autism and ADHD. Did you know that United States Department of Agriculture testing regularly finds pesticide residues that are considered unsafe for kids on non-organic produce samples? These foods often include peaches, apples, plums, grapes, pears, blueberries, strawberries and raisins. Yikes!
“Parents don’t want their children to serve as human guinea pigs for chemical corporations,” says Charlotte Vallaeys, director of farm and food policy for The Cornucopia Institute, an organic watchdog group. This is why going organic may be a wise decision for your family.
There are often large amounts of antibiotics used in farming which can create fatal diseases in humans. They are antibiotic-resistant superbugs; such as MRSA. These super bugs kill more than 90,000 people a year!
Organic, on the other hand, bans the use of antibiotics and you’re more than 30 percent less likely to be in contact with superbugs in the meat supply.
Many of the pesticides farmers use today can damage our DNA and kill our cells. They have been linked to some cancers and infertility. Try to buy your produce from farmers’ markets or grow some of your own foods at home.
“The enormous benefit of eating organic produce is that it reduces pesticide exposure by 90 percent. This has been proven in studies conducted at Harvard, the University of Washington, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” says pediatrician Phil Landrigan, MD, professor and chair of Preventive Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.
