I recently had a conversation with a gentleman who said, "All of this Organic hype is just a selling tactic. Why pay more for something, when you can pay less for the same thing? I figure if it's not immediately making me sick and giving me the sh*ts, then it's fine to eat."
Although I admire the man a great deal, this is a common misunderstanding that many people have today.
My question is, "Why not eat Organic?"
Clean food must be made a priority. Yes, the man has a point--you can eat conventional and processed foods and may not immediately experience adverse effects. However, it will creep up on you.
The chemistry from the food that you eat makes up your cells in your body, which makes up tissues, which makes up organs, which determines how efficiently you function, the way your body looks, etc. You actually are what you eat, and no one I know of dreams of being jacked up on hormones that beef you up to be fatter, quicker--like so many of those cows out there.
So if you're wondering why all of a sudden, after years, you have developed "allergies", food "intolerances", headaches, hormonal imbalance, acne, and/or other health issues, question how your food is grown and processed. The answers may lie in that genetically-modified, hormone-laden, chemical-preservative-laced "food" out there.
Always try to choose organic, even if you don't believe in it--it can make a serious difference in your life.
