Organic Choice

These days it’s hard to know what’s healthy. It seems every other day the blogs or info being circulated through social media and the news is saying the opposite to the week before. Advertising throws around the terms “Low Fat” (often high in sugar) or Zero sugar which may be filled with another genetically modified alternative that is not so great for your body. It’s time to learn what it is you are eating, this means you ultimately will be empowered to maintain your health and through wiser decisions hopefully prevent disease.This blog is just to get you thinking as there are all sorts of articles for you to read listed studies etc.

I”m a fan of organic produce so I decided to throw a few points in for you

Some simple things to consider

Is it organic? More supermarkets are increasing their organic ranges as well as an increase in speciality stores are becoming available. Another thing to note that sometime non-certified organic may be organic however they may not have gone through the demanding certification process.

Why choose organic when generally it costs more? The food grown is exposed to less pesticides, this means that you will consume less pesticides. I still suggest you wash your food.

Why does organic cost more? The farmer, labour, loss of crops, and attaining certification lead to higher costs.

Certified organic means the grower has to meet very high standards for this certification and there is more lost crop due to not using pesticides and herbicides. Studies involving food scans of organically grown vs conventionally grown fruit and vegetables shows a significant difference in the energy in the food being in favour of the organically grown. This is a good reason why to buy an organically grown apple for your morning tea rather than muslei  bar or conventionally grown fruit. There are studies that suggest there is no benefit to going organic, it is always important to explore any bias potential with any study that you are reading.
