5 Reasons To Eat Organic Foods

  1. GET MORE NUTRIENTS - As a Portland Personal trainer I want you to know that organic foods are 18-69 percent higher in health protective antioxidants than their conventional cousins. They also contain lower levels of toxic heavy metals and pesticides. The foods you should always buy organic are apples, celery, cherry tomatoes, grapes, cucumbers, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, snap peas, spinach, strawberries and sweet bell peppers.

  2. AVOID SYNTHETIC CHEMICAL PESTICIDES - Eating organically grown foods is the only way to avoid the cocktail of synthetic chemical pesticides an excessively large amounts of the herbicide glyphoshate present in commercially grown food. Pesticides can have a cumulative toxic loading effect both in the immediate and they are linked in to a growing list of health problems, including Alzheimers disease, asthma, birth defects, diabetes, learning disabilities, sexual and reproductive dysfunction, and several types of cancer.

  3. GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS - Increasing numbers of consumers want to avoid untested, unlabeled laboratory created GMOs. Genetically modified ingredients are found in at least 75 percent of all non organic U.S. processed foods, including in many products labeled as natural or all natural. Choosing organic is an easy way to steer clear of GMOs and suspected and unsuspected risks that may come with them. Organic farmers are not allowed to plant GM seeds nor use GM crop inputs..

  4. IRRADIATED FOOD WITH SEWAGE SLUDGE - Irradiated food with nuclear waste or electron beams can destroy vitamins and nutrients and produce cancer causing chemicals. Scientific evidence has shown that municipal sewage sludge contains hundreds of dangerous pathogens, toxic heavy metals, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, pharmaceutical drugs, and other hazardous chemicals..

  5. BENEFIT FROM HEALTHIER ANIMAL PRODUCTS - Meats, dairy products, poultry and eggs labeled USDA Organic must come from animals that are fed certified organic feed. Organic farming, by law, also prohibits the use of antibiotics and growth hormones and the intensive confinement of farm animals..
