Why You Should Eat Organic Food, and Not Listen to People that Tell You otherwise!

Unless you want to Poison Yourself.

The more I’m reading other blogs and websites like Medium.com, the more astonished I am about the amount of misinformation is put out there by bloggers and for that matter, publishers. Writing an inaccurate blog and publishing it on your site is one thing; for popular blogging websites like Medium.com to publish articles that are fake news is entirely another. Aren’t the “curators” who decide what gets posted on Medium.com supposed to fact check articles, rather than publish any garbage, clearly peddling false information?

There are several articles I’ve read recently on Medium.com, but one, in particular, stood out. The writer, who has no qualifications in this field, no degree in nutrition, no certifications or any time tested experience, publishes an article called “Organic Food isn’t better for your health.” Really? (please read it here, but come back to this story, as it speaks the truth, written by a real health expert).

Thanks to this blogger for letting us know his conclusions on the subject after maybe researching the internet for an hour, cherry-picking, and quoting claims he fancies to back up his article. Then he goes on to call this “evidence”? Really? Things that make you go, hmmm!

The Truth About Organic Versus Non Organic Foods.

First of all, organic, chemical-free foods will always be better for your health than foods containing dangerous chemicals. I mean that makes logical sense, without having to research at all. There are natural methods to treat vegetables and animals to keep them bug-free. I would much rather have to wash my lettuce and get rid of a bug or two than eat salad or any other vegetable sprayed with toxic chemicals for weeks, wouldn’t you?

Conventional Farms.

The Life of an Animal in an Industrial Farm.

Then there is GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) for vegetables, and Antibiotics and Growth Hormones added to the already nasty animal feed in the conventional animal factories. These animals are tied up to machines their whole life, fed a mix of cheap grains, animal by-products, and fillers. Added to the feed are Growth Hormones to make them grow bigger faster, Antibiotics, plus of course, a healthy dose of Pesticides to round off their diet!

These animals, which have led an awful life, without any freedom, have been fed chemicals, and other disgusting by-products are then led to slaughter. The meat is processed and packaged by the mighty food industry giants, such as Sysco and Tyson Foods. The meat is subsequently sold to you, the highest bidder, in every supermarket. If an animal has been treated that badly and has been fed a mix of poor grains and poison its whole life, do you think it’s a healthy animal? I think the answer is no. The saying, you are what you eat, is accurate and applies to all living creatures, not just humans.

Organic Free Range Farms.

Healthy Organic Strawberries are small in size, not giant size, as found in supermarkets.

On the contrary, any animal raised on ethical and sustainable farms, fed a healthy grass-fed or natural diet, free of grains and chemicals, has led a free-roaming and happy life, will inevitably produce high-quality meat. Will consuming organic, grass-fed meat affect your body and health positively, compared to consuming factory produced meats? Using simple logic, I think I have made the point, and I won’t bother to cite other articles on the matter.

Organic Grass Fed Animals live a Healthy Life and are free of Toxins.

The same applies to vegetables. Wouldn’t you prefer to consume vegetables that are free of pesticides and GMOs? I would. Have you seen the planes flying over fields of crop, spraying? Have you seen the heavy-duty farming machines driving through the fields spraying? Have you seen the men in suits, as if they are on the moon, spraying? If the spraying of vegetables is so harmless to our health, please conventional farmers and the food industry, drop your suites and go out and spray in bathing suits and sunglasses. Let’s see how long you last!

Genetically Modified Organisms.

The mentioned blogger cites the GMO process as being harmless. Is that so? Don’t think so. Why would GMO treatment be banned in Europe since 2015? Because GMO treatment is good for us? I doubt it. Let’s not forget what GMO is meant to do; to enhance resistance, to grow larger, to increase shelf life. Those giant-sized strawberries you are buying in your local stores, for example, have you noticed they can be quite tasteless? That’s what happens when fruit and vegetables are not natural, but instead sprayed with chemicals and treated with GMOs. That can’t be healthy in my book.

The Real Bottom Line.

It’s a sad fact today that the industrial food industry has hijacked our health and kitchen. We are told to consume things, marketed to us as “healthy”, which are actually making people sick. The food industry knows this, of course, but they don’t care, it’s all about profitability. I’ll name a few food items you may think are healthy, which are not:

All Cereals and Oatmeal, Granola, Bread, Rice, Power Bars, Power Drinks, Protein Shakes, Fruit Juice, Pasta, Noodles, Mayonnaise, Vegetable Oils, Pretzels, low-fat Yogurts, low-fat Milk or any Milk except raw milk), Wheat Flour of any kind. Even things you might think are extra healthy, such as Trail Mixes, or bags of Nuts, as most of these items contain poisonous vegetable oils!

Instead, consuming natural, locally sourced organic meats, and vegetables, and avoiding all forms of grains and sugar, will significantly support your health, reduce illnesses, increase your longevity and make you feel great, look great, and perform great!

As a certified Health Coach and former professional Athlete, I have learned a thing or two over the years. I experienced several significant health problems myself a few years ago, caused by the Standard American Diet (SAD), stress and the excessive intake of prescription medication. Had I not learned the truth about nutrition, and changed my life, by turning to a natural and organic Keto diet, I may not have been here today.

It’s common knowledge that ingesting toxic chemicals, knowingly or unknowingly is bad for our health. This consumption can lead to severe illnesses and even cancer. Whereas I know I can’t avoid every harmful ingredient every day, I can do my damn best to make an effort and consume toxic-free organic foods whenever possible, which means buying local and natural, and cooking at home. If you don’t, you are playing with you life.

Final Thoughts.

The more of us go organic, the more we are fighting against the “conventional food industry” which is destroying people’s health. Ideally, a complete shift to organic-only foods by consumers and also businesses would lead to a much healthier population. One supermarket chain, Aldi has taken this bold step and is banning any products containing pesticides or any other chemicals starting January 2020. Now, that is fantastic news for their consumers, as it’s forcing suppliers to step up, go clean, or lose the business! That sounds good to me.
