Why I choose Organic

  1. Organic Fruits and Vegetables taste BETTER, and have a higher nutrient content! - "  A study review authored by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Health researchers looks at the paucity of data now available concerning the nutrition-related health effects of organic foods, and points out the need for better designed studies to answer this question. The review, which appeared in the May 12, 2010,  online posting of articles for The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, only found 12 studies with any relevance to nutrition-related aspects of organic food, and most of these were poorly designed and flawed." Organic Trade Association- Nutritional Considerations for Organic
  2. I support sustainable agricultural practices.- " Research at The Rodale Institute has shown that organic practices can remove about 7,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air and sequester it in an acre of farmland per year. Thus, Rodale estimates that if all 434 million acres of U.S. cropland were converted to organic practices, it would be the equivalent of eliminating 217 million cars—nearly 88 percent of all cars in the country today and more than a third of all the automobiles in the world. " 
  3. I learned about the dangers of consuming Genetically Modified Food.- I also was excited to be able to attend the World Food Day Rally 2011. Check out www.LabelGMOs.org 

4. I research (the last 8 years) reasons why human disease has sky rocketed in the last 30 years! Pesticides are DANGEROUS!! GMO's ARE DANGEROUS!

Research all of these issues, and just by being educated you can heal yourself! The power of food is amazing! Many Dr's are not educated on nutrition and it's healing properties. Trust yourself first!
