Why organic food?

Organic produce! Organic food! More and more organic food is becoming available in local grocery stores these days. The word "organic" means producing without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides.

Now, it does not mean that non-organic food is terribly bad -- the idea here is that our body is made to take only natural organic food; adding artificial agents in food confuses the body and mind since we are not made to consume anything beyond naturally produced by mother earth. Organic food is meant to be 100% natural with zero chemicals and zero growth stimulants and our body absorbs the fullest nutrients and abundant minerals quickly and naturally without stressing the digestive system. It helps keep immune system intact in the long run.

In addition to health benefits brought by organic food, organic produce and food is environmentally safe since it doesn't contaminate soil, food and air in contrast to non-organic food produced with chemicals, artificial stimulants and pesticides.

Some studies say that there's not much difference between organic and non-organic food; my take is that "much difference" needs to be defined better. Our body is fundamentally made to consume organic food and also organic food helps environment by means of less or zero contamination of natural resources. It's your call -- make a wise decision for healthy and happy living! Keep smiling and be happy!
