|Now, more than ever, consumers are discovering
just how important the daily consumption of organic
foods can be to their overall health and fitness.
With proper rest, exercise, consumption of organic
foods, clean water and removal of toxic foods from
one’s diet, these simple changes can have an
enormous impact on overall health and quality of life.
We’ve received numerous comments from members
of the organic network about the significant health
benefits they’ve experienced when making simple
changes to their daily activities.
Did you know the majority of meats, fruits and vegetables
at virtually all supermarkets are loaded with dozens
of harmful chemicals?
More often than not, you can actually taste these
chemicals in the food. We’ve heard from consumers
who believe that harmful chemicals never make it to
the foods, that they’re all broken down in the
soil – WRONG!
The next time you visit your local supermarket, select
a fruit of your liking, purchase one that’s
organically grown and one that’s grown through
conventional farming methods.
Here are some observations you can make:
Taste the organically grown fruit and then compare
it to the taste of conventionally grown fruit?
Organically grown foods taste sweet without any toxic
residues you’ll actually taste in conventionally
farmed foods. Not only do they taste better, but also
it’s been proven through numerous scientific
studies that organically grown foods have a higher
nutrient value (up to 80%) than conventionally grown
Look at the fruit, its density, color and skin? Most
foods produced by organic grower’s require little
if any synthetic fertilizers or sprays to protect
them while they grow.
Did you know that virtually all conventionally grown
apples are sprayed with dangerous chemicals at least
18 times during their growing period?
Don’t think for one moment that what goes into
the soil and what’s sprayed on fruits and vegetables
won’t end up in your body.
The skins on organically grown foods are thicker
with more density and texture than conventionally
What kind of after-taste does the fruit leave in
Chances are organically grown foods will leave an
after taste similar to what you actually tasted when
you bit into the fruit or vegetable.
Whereas, with foods that’s are grown using
conventional farming practices, your tongue will leach
out and can actually taste the toxic residues.
Think about this for a moment and realize that if
you’ve been eating conventionally grown foods
all your life, your body is continually working overtime
to extract toxins every time you consume foods which
have traces of toxins in them.
