Had a conversation yesterday that I thought was a good point to share. People have said more than once about buying organics that is isn’t necessary because we grew up eating this food and we are okay.
So first, we are not okay. The rates of disease in this country have never been higher. Don’t believe me? Come sit at the chemo center for a week and see how many people you run into that you know.
The other fallacy is that this is the same food you were eating 30 or 40 years ago. It is not. Look at old pictures of chickens and then look at a picture of a chicken about to be “processed” by a manufacturer.
They are completely different. Our foods have now gone through decades of change from chemicals. Not just the ones that are now part of our day to day life through the air we breathe but from the massive amount of chemicals we add to our livestock to make them more profitable and grow our food in to make it disease and pest resistant.
We did not have to label the food as Organic, because the organic food was just food. Eating organics is simply making the choice to eat food that is closer to it’s original state.
