What is Organic Food - The Many Benefits of Organic Food -- http://www.noahhammond.com Today is about health and why you absolutely, without a doubt, must start buying and eating organic food only.
This is something that I just woke up to, I would say about a year ago. I know a lot of people are still in the dark about this so I felt that it was really something that I had to get out there. This is REALLY important and it is going to save you potentially a lot of strife down the road and a lot of health problems.
The Benefits of Organic Food -- More than Health!
The first obvious benefit is simply nutrition.
The way that industrial farming is done, they plant the same crop on the same soil over and over and over and over again. They stuff it full of fertilizers and they do not allow the natural cycle of composting, decomposing, and crop cycling to occur.
The way farming is supposed to be done is you farm a crop and then you allow the soil to replenish by composting and rejuvenating it with lots and lots of nutrients. To do that, you must allow organic material to decompose there.
Then, you plant another crop and you cycle the crops so that you can keep doing this. In industrial farming, they do the exact opposite which is planting the same crops in the soil continuously.
If you can compare this to anything, it would be trying to get all of your nutrition from vitamins only. It simply does not work. Your body can't take only vitamins and get what it needs. In fact, vitamins are BAD for you.
The same thing happens when they try to stuff the soil with fertilizers to make these plants have the nutrition they need. The end result is that the food they grow, while it LOOKS the same, its nutritional value is NOWHERE near the same.
The most extreme example of this is a study they did at Rutgers University where tomatoes that were grown organically had about 2,000 parts per billion of iron to one, compared to only 1 part per billion in the non-organic tomatoes.
Obviously, if you were eating tomatoes thinking you were getting your iron (essential for our health and balance), you were wrong. The inorganic tomatoes do not even have any because they are not even in the soil.
So, number one is nutrition. What is that going to affect? It is going to affect disease. Diseases come only from two things - either TOXICITY or DEFICIENCY.
If you don't get your vitamins and minerals, you become deficient. If you are deficient for long enough, your body can't maintain balance and you are going to get diseases.
So, not eating organic food is going to cause you to have more disease. This is just proven. This is just factual. The tests are out there. The data is out there. So you want to get organic food for that alone.
Now, another thing you want to understand is that the pesticides they use on these inorganic plants.
They are very difficult to get off the food and a lot of times people do not prepare and scrub as diligently as they need to. You end up consuming these chemicals. At this point, it's even showing up in people's urine. It's showing up all over the place.
People are really just getting inundated with these HARMFUL chemicals.
That's going to cause toxicity. Again, you can only get sick or get disease as a result of toxicity or deficiency.
Therefore, from the lack of nutrients, you'll have deficiency and from the chemicals, you'll get toxicity. So, inorganic food is a double whammy right there.
Lastly and really most CRITICALLY, is that inorganic food can be genetically modified which other countries around the world have banned. In the United States though, we are inundated with it. A HUGE quantity of our food supplies are genetically modified, especially from corporations like Monsanto.
These genetically modified foods are proven to cause CANCER and other issues. They are abundant in our food supply.
So, if you are not buying organic and natural foods, you are likely getting something that was farmed in a way that it has almost has no nutrition, that is covered in pesticides and other harmful chemicals, and then it is genetically modified in a way that does not deliver to your body what it needs and actually causes cancer. All three of those combined could be a really, really powerful case for trying to buy only organic foods.
Now I only eat organic foods and I have actually developed the ability to tell when I am eating something that is not organic. My body can sense the difference in nutrition. It is actually blatantly OBVIOUS to me at this point. I know this to be true from experience, not just from reading...
