Organic food is poison free and safer for your family as well as for life along the supply chain. Organic food is an obvious choice to support healing for anyone recovering from candida overgrowth or other chronic or degenerative condition.
Organic food has more diverse nutrients and tastes better when compared to equally fresh, conventionally produced food. And when it is purchased from local markets it is likely eliminating the middle-'men' and more directly supporting small family farmers. Supporting our local organic farmers is the best way to improve the quality of our food supply and reintroduce community values to the business of producing food.
Wayne Roberts, co-author of Real Food for a Change, describes organically grown food as "anxiety-light" and says that "it's a sad commentary that the biggest selling point for organic food today is that it won't harm you." This is true though there are other great reasons to eat it.
Below is a list of ten selling points for organic food. The list was created by Sylvia Tawse from Alfalfa's Markets, Boulder Colorado:
- Protect future generations.
- Prevent soil erosion [by supporting soil building organic practices.]
- Protect water quality.
- Save energy [by supporting organic farming by-hand methods]
- Keep chemicals off your plate.
- Protect farm worker's health.
- Help small farmers.
- Support a true economy. [Lower priced conventional food prices reflect subsidies paid by the taxpayer for chemical management and clean up.]
- Promote biodiversity. [Organic farmers use crop and field rotation as pest management and clean up.]
- Taste better flavor. [You can easily locate the full version of this article by searching the Internet for "Top ten reasons to go organic."]
