Eat Organic, or Eat at Your Own Risk

Eat organic fruits and vegetables or eat at your own risk...

Studies show that not only do organic fruits and vegetables contain much higher levels of nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and annutrients (poloyphenols, carotene, antioxidants) as their non-organic counterparts, but many health experts including mainstream medical doctors have gone as far as listing certain non-organic foods that they would NEVER even consider eating; these include fruits such as apples, tomatoes, oranges, cherries, strawberries and vegetables such as leafy greens, peppers, and potatoes to name a few.

The truth is the more popular the food (apples, tomatoes, potatoes, greens...) the more influence the large corporations have on these items. To them these items are a commodity (not a food) and just like any commodity its all about the mighty $$!

Eat organic grass-fed beef and free-grazed poultry and eggs or eat at your own risk...

It's a fact that corn fed cows and chickens (and even fish like farm raised salmon and tilapia) are not simply less healthy then their organic free-grazed counter parts but they actually do more harm than good when eaten. In many cases what you get is an unhealthy animal sickened with disease and bacteria such as E-coli, highly dependent on daily doses of antibiotics in order to stay alive long enough to be slaughtered, which in turn leads to an unhealthy food source full of antibiotics and high in Omega-6 rather than being natural sources of Omega-3 like nature intended.

All of this gets passed on to the unsuspecting eater (you) which leads to E-coli outbreaks in our food chain, and a society plagued with high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, and chronic inflammation in all its forms.

Eat organic minimally processed foods or eat at your own risk...

Our society has become so brainwashed into thinking that these prepackaged pre-made overly processed science experiments, that are all too commonly mistaken for food, are actually good for you that they can't see the ugly truth... It's these same non-organic overly processed foods high in refined simple sugars and flowers and loaded with chemicals in the form of artificial preservatives and additives, that have created a society that suffers from diabetes obesity heart disease and cancer in epidemic proportions.

Don't believe me outright though, do the research on your own. Only when you see for yourself, will you realize what I and many others have found... The day our food became a mass produced highly profitable commodity is the day our nation was taken over by a handful of corporations with unimaginable money power and political influence, and that's the day we said goodbye to food as it was intended.

When you eat organic foods, locally grown and in season when possible, you're not only ensuring that you get the healthiest food available, but you're standing up to these multinational food conglomerates.
