Can Organic Food Comsumption Change Your Life?
Notice a different attitude in today’s world about the subject of organic gardening.
As people become more and more aware of their environment and what they can do to help
themselves and the earth, they are turning to organic gardening. Organic gardens are a
way to gain control on what you consume, how to improve your health and reduce the risk
of diseases, like obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
Many people go to organic farmer’s markets to stock up on freshly grown
organic fruits and vegetables, or they peruse their local supermarket to see
what is in stock. However, while organic food is great for the body and
environment, it's not so nice on the wallet. That’s why many people are turning to
home organic gardening. Organic gardening at home can be successful once established
and with some level of time and effort. It does take a bit more effort and a stronger
commitment to maintain than a non-orgnaic alternative. It goes without saying, you will
not be able to use conventional sprays and poisons to get rid of bugs, diseases and pests.
Or use synthetic growth agents to increase productions, however it is worth it in the long run, as the extra effort is worth
the healthier fruits and vegetables your family will enjoy.
Many home gardeners use their own compost to fertilze. This is a great way to help the earth by recycling. Composting helps the soil become rich, which then aids your garden and provides natural protection and increased production of your fruits and vegetables. Its a win-win solution, you'll be saving money on fertilizer, while helping the planet by reusing and recycling waste.
What About Pesticides!
Consuming more organic food certainly isn't the only way to improve one's nutrient
intake, but it may be the safest. It's regularly claimed by the mainstream food industry
that pesticide residues in foods are known to be safe on the basis of total diet surveys that
supposedly find the levels of pesticide residues in our food to be very low and within
acceptable safety limits. But monitoring programs consistently show that around
one in three non-organic food samples tested contains a variety of pesticide residues, with
far lower levels being found in and on organic produce. Conventional-food proponents also
claim that rigorous safety assessments show that pesticide residues are no threat to human health.
Yet consumers intuitively know this is a false assurance.
Most pesticide-residue safety levels are set for individual pesticides, but many samples
of fresh produce carry multiple pesticide residues. Rules often do not take into account the "cocktail effect"
of combinations of pesticides in and on foods. Research is emerging confirming the potential for such
synergistic increases in toxicity of up to 100-fold, resulting in reproductive, immune and nervous system
effects not expected from the individual compounds acting alone. (data from grinningplanet)
