More and more consumers are making their shift to organic when it comes to fresh produce, food, and even non-food item, but what is the fuss about? What makes organic so much better than conventional and non-organic products? Perhaps, before I talk about organic foods, let’s look at what non-organic foods can bring to the table…
What Am I Ingesting When
I Eat Non-Organic Foods?
Non organic foods contain an unbelievable range of all different kinds of chemicals and treatments. These stay in the body and disrupt the normal function of the cells, creating great harm. These include:
• GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)
• Synthetic fertilizers
• Sewage sludge
• Genetic engineering
In other words… an array of various toxins that degrade and break down the human body, eventually causing great damage.
Pesticides (chemicals created to kill insects, fungal pests and weeds) alone, are associated with higher risk of cancers and a host of other life-threatening diseases.
What Does 'Organic' Really Mean?
Today, with a lot of products claiming to be organically produced, identifying genuine organic is very important, especially if consuming it for health reasons. Unless you see and buy products that are freshly harvested before your eyes, consumers must be discerning of product labels and certifications claiming to be organic.
Organic food is simply a food without anything artificial, synthetic, chemical-filled, and genetically modified in its content. Organic foods are produced through farming practices that only use natural methods and substances. And ' organic' is not a loose term: organic has a precise meaning.
Each country has an official organic certification stamp, that willl vouch for its truthfulness in its content, nutritional value and the way it was farmed. It if does not say CERTIFIED ORGANIC, it isn't!
About Organic Plant Foods
The demand for organic produce comes after studies producing evidence of the higher nutritional value of organically produced food. There are also others that show the damaging effects of artificial and chemical contents in food production, on consumers as well as the environment.
Speaking of the environment, organic farming also allows for recycling and contributes to biodiversity conservation – so it's not all about our own health, it is about the health of the planet. And a strong planet means strong, life-giving produce. For us, it is clear that artificial herbicides and pesticides have harmful side effects. We need to be aware of ways to begin eliminating them in order to reduce the amount of disease in our society, and in our own homes.
What Makes A Plant Food Certifiably Organic?
For fruits and vegetables, organic produce qualifies as being environmentally produced, without those human-harming chemicals and treatments. Plants must be grown without any genetic modification, synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, Ionizing Radiation or sewage sludge.
About Organic Animal Foods
Organic animal produce includes meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.
Organic farmers must ensure their animals are raised exclusively on organic feed. Like us, any animals that feed on organic foods are healthier and have lower risk of disease.
And they have to make sure their animals have access to the great outdoors, to daylight and the natural elements. They must allow their animals pasture on which they can roam freely. Cows, for example, must be able to graze on fresh, quality grass for at least 1/3 of the time.
Producers are inspected regularly to make sure these practices are being followed to the letter. This all ends with healthy, happy animals living natural lives free of chemicals.
What Makes an Animal Food Certifiably Organic?
The Animals Must Be Raised Completely Free Of:
• Livestock Feed Additives
• Antimicrobial Drugs
• Artificial growth hormones and Regulators
• GMO (genetically modified organisms)

How Do I Save Money When I Buy Organic?
It is true that there is an unfortunate downside to eating organic - organically produced foods are more labour-intensive and thus, organic products are usually more expensive than non-organic products. But in the long run, it is worth the extra cost for those who value health.
But the good news is that you can spend judiciously, and save some money by recognizing that some produce is fine when ‘conventionally’ grown - there are certain nonorganic fruits and vegetables that can pass muster, and you can eat these with a little less pressure on the budget! Some foods, like avocados, coconuts, nuts, bananas or onions for instance, are not often sprayed with pesticides, but things like lettuce, tomatoes and celery are hugely susceptible to bugs so these things are heavily sprayed with pesticides in conventional farming. Many of the root vegetables absorb pesticides in the soil very easily - so organic Turmeric and ginger is an absolute essential :)

And as for the produce that has to be organic, remember that you can spend a bit more now, or spend a lot more later, on medical bills created by a challenged body struggling on a diet of synthetic chemicals and poisons.
