With 7 billion people in the world, the way we produce food has changed. We need it fast, we need lots of it and we want it now. To meet our demand, our modern world turned to artificial ingredients, pesticides, hormones, fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), unknowing of the long-term outcomes. Nowadays, you can get large amounts of any food you crave with the click of a button and at much cheaper prices. Today, you can purchase a burger for $4, chips for $1.50, or even $0.50 for cookies. But, have you stopped to consider what price your health is paying?
Mass food production comes at a cost to the consumer and to the environment. Our precious animal friends are treated poorly and injected with hormones and other substances that pass throughout the food chain and end up in our bodies. Likewise, our earth gets polluted with chemicals that can also end up in our drinking water and scale up the food chain. Additionally, the nutritional value of our food can become compromised, and you’ll end up getting less bang for your buck. Luckily, there are many health-focused farmers and growers that believe that consumers should receive food in their purest form, giving birth to the organic food movement.
Organic food changed the way we consume food forever. Organic food refers to food produced in its purest form--this means no antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Organic food can have more nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and fewer synthetic substances that can potentially be harmful to our health. Choosing organic means that you also want to protect our animal friends from unnecessary antibiotics and hormones, and keep our earth clean from pesticides and artificial fertilizers. With organic food, you can have control not only over what you eat but also where it comes from. Choose organic today!
