Most people wonder if eating organically is actually worth all of the hype that it gets in the media. If it looks, tastes, and feels just like the inorganic versions of the foods that you are already buying, can it really make that big of a difference for your health?
If how pesticides affect the environment isn’t scary enough for you to make the change to organic foods, then what those chemicals are doing to your body should be. In the video linked to in this article, a Swedish family switches from their normal eating habits to all organic foods for just one week, and the results are staggering. The Swedish Environmental research institute took samples of each of the kids urine at the beginning and end of the week. What they found over the course of the experiment is that the levels of insecticides, fungicides, and plant growth indicators virtually vanished.
The mother even noted that when seeing those numbers drop to almost nothing and thinking about her children, she believes that the higher prices that you are going to pay for organic foods are well worth it. After getting those chemicals eliminated from her kids bodies, she says that she does not want them back. The higher price of organic foods were originally a dissuading factor, but this experiment showed the family that in terms of preventative medicine, spending a little more money on food now could save them a ton of money in the long run.
