Food is essential for our life but which type of food we should have ?
We all know that food is medicine. It is crucial for
Health and plays a part in natural healing.
Everyone wants to have a good health. But it mainly depends on upon the food that we intake every day. Organics are better for greater health. According to Dr. McDougall, we consume the
food from the top of the food chain. Dairy products and
environmental chemicals cause many diseases. He also
believes that organics could prevent and heal many of the
Low carbohydrates, low fiber, high fat and high protein. These
are common in the rich food that everyone eats. Cancer,
diabetes, heart disease, obesity and Parkinson’s disease are the
outcomes of the defect in our foods.
Dr. McDougall launched “The McDougall program for
Women”. The main focus of this program was to educate the
women on how diets affect the daily life. Fats and synthetic
chemicals are the main cause of breast cancer.
Sexual maturity in girls is because of the chemical estrogen in
food. The menstrual cycles in girls develop in the late teenage
i;e around 16, 17 or 18. Currently, they develop at the age
between 8-11. Increasing levels of fat, use of hormones and
estrogen-mimicking chemicals are the direct cause.
Treating breast cancer with proper organic diet was published
in 1980’s with healthy eating. It also has known to increase the
longevity of life for people with breast cancer.
Menopause is caused due to over stimulation of estrogen. This
is because of the hormones that are used to bring animals
faster to maturity.
Osteoporosis is also because of rich acidic animal food. The
bones that are urinated from kidneys re-solidify and form
calcium stones in the kidneys. This is because of the imbalance
of acid/alkaline in the body. Eating organic fruits and
vegetables would balance the alkaline levels in the body.
To curb all these effects, organic foods play a vital role. But
organic food is considered old age or hippie by few people
around in some places. But globally, the importance and use of
organic food are wide.
John Robbins, an educator, pioneer, founder of Earth Save and
author of Diet for a New America and May All Be Fed. Earth
Save is dedicated to healthy life and environments through
Europe has one of the largest growth and intake of organic
foods in the world. There is a 35 fold expansion in the organic area
since 1985 with over 30% growth annually. Austria has over
13% of Organic Agriculture. Finland, Italy, Sweden and
Switzerland has 5-10% of Organic farming. This increase of
organic farming would take over the world into healthy hands.
In Europe, there is consumer demand, preference, and support
for Organic farming. But in North America, it is more of
consumer demand. But, there is a growth of 20% organic food
which accounts for about 20% of global annual sales.
Mad Cow Disease has widespread the dangerous effects of
chemicals in farming. Many people have realized this and have
moved to organic foods. Genetically modified food are labeled
in European countries and Japan.
There is another scenario going in. Countries do not use
pesticides or chemicals for farming. This is due to awareness
of the effects of these chemicals and the fight against those
chemicals. Instead, the chemicals are shipped to other
countries. These chemicals are used in growing food. The food
is later shipped back to the country. This is called Circle of
Poison and is seen in the US.
Cuba has over 30,000 organic markets with the result of the
boycott. Uganda produces over 10% of organic cotton in the
world. It is more than the organic cotton produced in the US.
Organic production in Argentina has grown by 70000%,
exporting more than $100 million products each year.
In monoculture, insects develop resistance to the
chemicals and pesticides. Later, stronger chemicals are
prepared to fight the insects, and they then develop
resistance. This results in more toxic and more health and
Groundwater and the soil are infected with these chemicals.
Nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium are the primary mineral
requirements. Synthetic fertilizers replace These.
National Organic Standards does not allow the inclusion of
sludge, sewage and genetically engineered material to
Organics which was proposed by USDA.
People go with the thought of organic food being expensive.
Thin about the other costs that come around with inorganic
food. Medical expenses, environmental pollution, diseases, and
many other issues. Taking all these aspects into account,
organic foods are way too cheaper.
By now you all understand how beneficial organic foods are.
Inorganic crops are harmful to the earth and humanity as a
Why take something that is not good for health and gives harmful effects? A mindful person would never do that.
Let us all say no to the chemicals. Going organic would be a
the very great thing both for you and the environment.
Go organic, stay healthy!
