10 Good Reasons to Eat Organic Whole Foods

Posted Jun 02 2008 6:04pm
There are many good reasons all of us should eat organic foods and whole foods. This list is not necessarily the "TOP" 10 reasons, but they are 10 good reasons to eat organic.

#1. TREAT YOUR BODY LIKE A TEMPLE

As I've said before, you are what you eat. Nature designed these fruits and vegetables to provide all creatures with a source of nutrition that no laboratory can recreate. People take isolated vitamins and think they are doing the best thing for their health. In reality, as many studies have shown, when you try to isolate the vitamin from it's whole food source (or worse yet, create the vitamin in a test tube), you cannot come close to the complex biology of the nutrition from an actual plant or other whole food source.

#2. INCREASE AGRICULTURAL DIVERSITY

Eating organic helps preserve thousands of agricultural varieties not accommodated by industrial agriculture.

#3. CREATE BALANCED ECOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES

Growing foods without harsh pesticides allows nature's independent web of life to work together to further build the rich microbial ecosystems found in organic soils.

#4. WE HAVE CHOICES

All the pesticides, herbicides and fungicides go somewhere after agribusiness sprays them on food. They go into our water supply, the air we breathe and thus into our bodies.

#5. AVOID BEING A GENETIC ENGINEERING EXPERIMENT

According to the Center for Food Safety "70 to 75 percent of processed foods contain at least 1 genetically engineered ingredient." Only organic foods offer us the ability to sidestep the risks of genetically engineered food.

#6. CREATE A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY

It only takes about 10 families eating organic to support one small-scale organic farm.

#7. BLOSSOM THE PLANET

Our farmland is a thin web of living earth blanketing the planet. It needs to be nurtured and protected.

#8. LEAVE A LEGACY FOR OUR CHILDREN

How do we expect to have 7 generations follow us if we do not provide them a healthy future?

#9. MAKE YOUR CONNECTION

You get a tangible and edible relationship with the living Earth every time you eat organic.

#10. YUM!

Top chefs agree that you need great tasting ingredients to make great tasting food.

These are just some of the many reasons to eat organic whole foods. I know there are many more, but let's see what YOU think?
