Organic

 

Organic produce contains fewer pesticides

Pesticides are chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides and insecticides. These chemicals are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on the food we eat.

 

Organic food is often fresher

Fresh food tastes better. Organic food is usually fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives to make it last longer.

 

Organic farming is better for the environment

Organic farming practices reduce pollution (water, soil, air), conserve water, use less energy, reduce soil erosion and increase soil fertility.

 

Organically raised animals are not given antibiotics, growth hormones, preservatives or animal by products.

The use of antibiotics in conventional meat production helps create antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. That means when someone get sick from these strains they will be responsive to antibiotics treatment. Not feeding animal by products to other animal can reduce the risk of mad cow disease (BSE). In addition, animals are given more space to move around outsides, it aims to keep animals more healthy. If animals live in crowded condition of environments, they may get sick easily.

GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)

GMO are plants or animals whose DNA has been altered. These products have undergone only short term testing to determine their effects on humans and the environment. In most countries, organic products DO NOT contain GMOs.

 

Trans Fats

Trans fats work like saturated fats to raise your overall cholesterol levels, but also raise your LDL or bad cholesterol. LDL cholesterol builds up on your artery walls, causing them to narrow and harden, thus increasing your risk for developing coronary heart disease.

 

Iron

Iron is a key dietary mineral or nutrient that is indispensable for the normal as well as healthy functioning of your body. One of the best ways to elevate the quantity of iron in your body is intake foods rich in iron.

 

Protein

Most of protein intakes are based on animal-food sources of protein such as meat, milk and eggs. However, diets based solely on plant foods as sources of protein can be adequate and supply for adults. The American Diabetic Association emphasizes that protein combining at each meal is unnecessary, as long as a range of protein rich foods is eaten during the day.
