Advantages of Organic Food
The benefits of organic food to you and the planet
The advantages of organic food are substantial, both to your health and your environment. Empower yourself by choosing to eat organic food and selecting organic gardening methods whenever possible.
Eating organic food enables you to:
- know your food
- improve your health
- help the planet
Since the fast-food mentality has been adopted by grocery food chains, we have become deluged with greenhouse-grown produce that bears little resemblance to real vegetables and fruits except for their appearance. The texture and taste of a supermarket tomato are just not the same as a home-grown tomato or one that is sourced organically. The same applies to all our vegetables and fruits that we can grow locally.
It makes sense, then, that we endeavour as much as possible to take steps to bring about another green revolution, an organic one, in our own backyards. This is one of the best ways to empower ourselves in this age of convenience where products and services are readily available, but at a very high price. The price we pay is the health and well-being of ourselves and our children, and the time has come to stop and take back this important responsibility.
Since we are what we eat, eating and growing organic will produce a better digestion for all and therefore good overall health, including sound sleep patterns, an enhanced immune system and a stable mental and emotional outlook on life. This brings peace of mind.
