I’m sure you have heard of all the additives and chemicals that are constantly being injected in our food supply and if you’re like me, it’s really starting to question some of your eating decisions.
In recently switching to a completely organic lifestyle, I have learned some of the most important foods that should be eaten organically. These foods are obviously free of pesticides and less hazardous for your health so anyone wanting to stay healthy may want to consider making the switch.
Here’s a list of the best foods you should buy organic.
In eating organic beef, you just avoid the chance of taking in the hormones and antibiotics given to cows, which can also help prevent cancer.
Did you know that many companies don’t strictly follow the USDA guidelines when it comes to producing beef? After hearing this, consuming regular beef certainly becomes more questionable.
Popcorn is also linked to cancer. The lining of the bags contain a toxic chemical known as PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) so that the popcorn won’t stick to the bag.
A little scary, huh?
… A simple movie snack that can kill.
Organic popcorn addresses this issue, making your snack a little safer.
Many people suggest eating berries every day because they’re rich in antioxidants. Research have found that there are 13 types of pesticides found on strawberries, which can be difficult to completely wash off because of all the tiny bumps on their skin.
This means you end up consuming well, who really knows how much of those chemicals. Who want’s that, right?
#4. Bottled Water
Okay, so water isn’t exactly a type of food, but with our bodies being made up over 60% water, I would say it’s still important.
Studies have shown that water bottles contain BPA, which can also be linked to different types of cancer, particularly breast cancer in women.
If this scares you, try using BPA-free bottles or those made of stainless steel.
The same concept goes for your food storage containers as well.
Just live the beef we we’re discussing earlier in this article, the hormones from cows are passed right along into our milk. About 60-70 & to be exact. These levels also contribute to breast cancer.
Milk is a great source of calcium and other vitamins, and an essential for healthy growth. But who wants to give a source like this to their kids?
Organic milk eliminates these chemicals making it safe to sip on milk again.
When you pick up celery from the produce section of your grocery store, it generally looks like it came straight from the farm.
Just as well, studies have shown that celery is one of the vegetables found to be high in pesticides, which is a great reason to switch to organic. Green bell peppers, potatoes, and spinach fall in the same category as well.
Since switching to the organic version of each of these foods, I’ve felt happier and healthier than ever before. Knowing that my food is clean and free of hormones and preservatives makes me really feel like I’m doing my body right.
More people should be presented this information so they can make the switch themselves, especially those raising kids. Cancer is more prevalent than ever these days, largely because of the preservatives and chemicals found in our food.
You may think that you have been eating healthy by consuming fruits and vegetables like the ones mentioned above but in reality, you may be doing more harm than good.
Knowing these measures can add time to your life and a new quality that you may have never knew existed. If you liked this article, please feel free to share with your friends and loved others so you can remain in each others lives for a long time.
