Eating Organic on a Budget
- 4 Months ago
Organic food has gained a lot of popularity in recent years accompanied by the sprouting of supermarkets and shops that specialize in selling this food. Although the younger generation seems to be well informed on the health and environmental benefits of eating organic, one major concern that still remains is that they don’t come cheap. In fact, the cost is the only downside of eating organic food, one that prevents most people from making it a lifestyle choice. The end result involves consumption of an unpleasant mix of non-organic and organic foods, a 70/30 ratio that doesn’t really help the body as much.
Pesticide-ridden, genetically modified non-organic foods deliver harmful neurotoxins that are damaging to the brain and nerve cells. They cause intestinal damage, allergies, liver and pancreatic problems, and are linked with cancer as well. And, they don’t just stop with your body; they affect the environment as well. Organics, on the upside, do not deliver such harmful results. They are more nutritious and contain higher levels of Vitamin C, antioxidants, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and chromium. What’s more, they are cultivated free of pesticides and fertilizers and are environment friendly.
