WHY YOU SHOULD GO ORGANIC.
Organic food is produced using farming systems that don’t rely on synthetic fertilisers, pesticides or genetic modification. This results in foods that contain a higher level of nutrients, which some people say also taste better. Organic food contains all the nutrients you’d expect, but in non-organic produce delicate vitamins such as vitamin C are often depleted. If you take the time and effort to prepare healthy food from scratch for your family, it’s in your best interest to choose ingredients that won’t undo all your hard work. Purchasing organic produce should be seen as a long-term investment in your health, not a fad or a quick fix. The effects can’t always be seen immediately, but there’s evidence to show that a reduction in chemical load can assist in the prevention of certain cancers. Children are generally more sensitive to chemicals, so they can also benefit from an organic diet. Known hormone disrupters in many pesticides can play havoc in women who suffer from hormonal imbalances.
