We're passionate about food
When you’re passionate about food and it’s effects on the body, there’s nothing quite as exciting as visiting an organic food market, where produce seems, well, sacred. Pick up a carrot at the Supermarket, and it’s just a carrot.
But pick up a carrot at an organic food market, and it becomes an object of reverence.
You know what we mean…
Then there’s also the joyful feeling of being with like-minded people who “get” the joy of being in the presence of the treasured organic potato.
And if you’ve never experienced that kind of reverence for carrots and spinach, maybe it’s because you have yet to be endowed with the fascinating reasons of why organic foodists sometimes get a bit loopy over food.
Benefits of organically grown produce
- Organic produce contains more nutrients than modern farmed food. For instance, the way organic tomatoes are grown results in an excessive formation of antioxidants which non-organic tomatoes can’t provide. Antioxidants prevent nasties like cancer, vision problems, heart disease and premature aging.
- Pesticides are used on non-organically grown food to keep bugs off and away, but as much as they’re toxic to teeny tiny mouths, they are also toxic to humans and can cause things like cancer, ADD, developmental problems, etc.
- As for GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) food...in tests, it was shown that genetically modified food caused a major reduction in building the human immune system, which causes infant death, some types of sexual dysfunctions, cancer, and allergen sensitivity, to name but a few.
