  2. 2. Have you walked by the organic food section of yourgrocery store and wondered, why do people pay more forfood that is called organic? You may or may not evenknow the difference between organic and non organicfoods. Basically a food that is labeled as organic is free ofchemicals, antibiotics, and growth hormones. So whatorganic really means is that food is 100% natural.There are 3 main reasons why people eat organic foodeven though this type of food costs more.Better HealthThe first reason that individuals choose organic foods isthat they are potentially healthier. When you eat food thatis laden with chemicals and pesticides, you have a higherrisk of developing health problems such as cancer.Studies indicate that if you eat a normal apple (after it waswashed), you are still consuming around nine differenttypes of pesticides. When you eat an organic food, it willbe free of these toxic pesticides. There is also a debate asto whether these organic foods have more nutrients thannormal food. Some studies show that these foods havemore nutrients and then there are other studies that do notindicate this fact at all. In any case if you choose organicfoods, you will likley be getting less toxic chemicals in yourdiet.
  3. 3. Better EnvironmentOther people that consume organic foods are ones thatare concerned about the environment. When a food isfarmed organically, chemical fertilizers and pesticides arenot used in the farming process. The yields are not asgood but it is better for the soil and water conservation aswell as reduce pollution. By choosing to eat organic food,you are indirectly doing a small part in protecting theenvironment.It Tastes BetterThe next reason that individuals choose to buy organicfoods is that they taste better. Now do they really tastebetter? Some people say yes others say no. Does organicfood really taste better? The difference in taste is morepronounce in certain foods, not all. Some of the foods thatmay taste better are chicken, bananas, strawberries,celery, milk and carrots does taste better when they areorganic.
  4. 4. Some polls show that a majority of people believe thatorganic food benefits the environment and health but onlya small percentage of individuals are actually buying thistype of food. The main reason for this is because this foodcan cost up to three times as much as the non-organicfoods. However there are ways to get organic foods at alower price. Here are some suggestions - Clubs or co-ops - Directly from farmers - Buy in bulk - Store brands instead of name brands - Plant your own organic garden - Buy in season - Only buy certain foods organically (the ones known to be really bad for you) - Dont have to switch over to organic food 100%.Here are 12 foods that may have a high level ofcontamination: peach, apple, sweet bell pepper, celery,nectarine, strawberries, cherries, kale, lettuce, importedgrapes, carrot and pear. So if you want to slowly switchover to organic foods without killing your budget, then youmay want to start out with these foods.
  5. 5. So is it worth switching over to organic foods? It is reallyup to you but if you do switch you will likely be eatingfoods that are better for you and the environment. Get a Free Spiritual Healing For Cancer E-Course and healthy subliminal download at www.custom-hypnosis.com/cancer
