Around the world, 6 billion pounds of pesticides are applied to food crops every year. Going organic makes agricultural produce healthier, not just for you, but for everyone downstream from where the crops are produced. When foods are described as organic, that means that it’s been grown and processed without any toxic pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones or chemical fertilisers. This ensures that you get more nutrition for every bite! Start going organic to enjoy the best possible nutritional value from foods you eat and also fight off disease.
Living a healthy lifestyle is not just about cutting out any junk food. It requires you to get the highest nutrients from every bite of food without the chemicals. According to research published in the Journal of Applied Nutrition, food that is organic contains 63 percent more calcium, 73 percent more iron and 118 percent more magnesium, while being 29 percent lower in mercury.
