Top 5 Reasons
Top 5 reasons why should you eat organic food ?
𝑬𝒂𝒕 𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒎𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍 𝒇𝒓𝒆𝒆 - Organic food has a minimal presence of toxic metals and chemicals especially pesticides. Convention farming uses a host of chemicals like fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, and even ripening agents. Many studies have found chemicals in pesticides and heavy metals to be carcinogenic and increase the risk of cancer.
𝑮𝒆𝒕 𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒏𝒖𝒕𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒔 - Organic fruits, vegetables, and cereals contain more vitamins, minerals, and ant-oxidants as compared to conventional food. As per a recent study (the largest of its kind) by Newcastle University in the British Journal of Nutrition, organic food contains substantially higher (19-69%) antioxidants compared to conventional products which reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
𝑰𝒎𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒈𝒖𝒕 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉 - Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract. In fact, as per Ayurveda, 95% of all diseases originate in the gut. Organic food is a natural probiotic as it is grown with the help of the naturally occurring microbes in soil as compared to conventional farming where the use of fertilizers destroys the soil microbiome.
𝑹𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒆 𝒄𝒍𝒊𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒆 𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒆 - Organic soil acts as a natural reservoir for carbon dioxide through the carbon sequestration process and can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It also becomes more spongy and acts as a natural reservoir for water. Each 1 percent increase in organic matter in the soil helps it hold 20,000 gallons more water per acre and 10 tons of carbon per acre. In fact, studies have shown we can reverse the excess carbon in the atmosphere in 10 to 15 years by converting all farmland to regenerative agriculture.
𝑯𝒆𝒍𝒑 𝒇𝒂𝒓𝒎𝒆𝒓𝒔 - Lastly, organic farming increases income for the farmers as they get better prices for organic fruits and vegetables. Usually, organic farmers go for crop rotation, multi-cropping, mulching, and using natural cow manure which also reduces their input costs and frees them from the debt burden. It also gives them a sense of great pride to serve healthy food to customers.
