Why Whole Food is Healthier

The Truth about Organic Food

At present you might be familiar with the word naturally-grown in foods, most specifically in vegetables and fruits. It is a unique label that means top prices and better consideration for the agricultural product, for the reason that naturally-grown  food is better. Well, as point of fact, no-chemical food is definitely better than the normal and regular foodstuffs displayed in the supermarket bins. The rationale is that naturally-grown foods as it is accepted today are raised without mixing chemicals in fertilizers and other growing requirements like insecticides, pesticides and other ‘cides.

Normal food is produced at present in soils mixed with chemical fertilizers to boost the nutritive value and develop the food sooner, heftier, and in larger amounts. Most foodstuffs retailed in supermarkets are the product of huge plantations or business agriculture. Hence there is the need to generate as large, as fast, and as low-cost as possible. So an industrial farming project will load the soil with common fertilizer to increase the ‘nutrients’ and make the vegetables grow more quickly and larger, in an exertion to squeeze as much harvest as may be from the project.

The issue here is that the stuffs employed to bring the ‘nutrients’ into the soil are normally not biodegradable stuff, and therefore damage the soil’s make-up with their presence. Therefore, aside from the plants ingesting the undesirable chemicals into their system and ultimately into the edible parts, the fertilizer also impairs the soil it was supposed to enrich originally. It is one rationale why a continually growing volume of chemical fertilizer — a spiraling cycle, actually— is demanded each cropping phase to produce the same volume of product.

And because such enterprises are most times one-plant agriculture in huge magnitudes, pest control cannot be viably carried out without the extensive use of bug spray, anti-snail spray and defoliants, all chemical substances and often dangerous in substantial measures. Pesticide application is most times conducted via aerial spraying to take in both the plants and the fruits, and residues of the chemicals stick to the fruit skin even while it is in the market. In many instances, too, chemicals are deliberately bathed onto the fruit peel or rind to preserve its aesthetic look and improve its selling potential.

Maybe the quantity of poison that may be remaining in the foodstuffs we gobble up each day should not distress us in any substantial way, even after some period of time. But, not all of us is made up of the same disposition, and each of us is stimulated in a varied way from the others. Several will be prone to harmful effects of such chemicals, but others can stand larger quantities than average. But with organic foodstuffs, at least we can promise ourselves that we are imbibing less harmful elements and trying to live healthier.

No-chemical food?  Take it, as often as you can. You ingest less damaging chemicals into your body, and help dissuade the use of chemical fertilizers which damage the soil and nature. In doing so, you help protect the sole planet we live in and the life you live. Now please come to my site and buy warhammer gold for your age of reckoning account.
