Good health starts with a good diet. That is why it is so important for families to eat good quality foods, especially certified organic foods. If you are truly motivated to protect your health and sharply reduce your risk to many prevalent diseases and ailments, you will want to make the effort to purchase organically produced fruits, vegetables, and grains at every opportunity. Every time that you choose conventionally farmed foods over organic, you are increasing your cumulative exposure to chemicals and raising your risk of disease.
Organic foods are not only safe for you to eat they are more nutritious too. Studies have shown that foods grown organically have a greater nutritional value than conventionally grown foods. At Rutgers University, researchers studied the mineral quality of conventional produce and organic produce and discovered that, on average, the organically grown foods had an 87 percent higher content of magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, and copper.
So what is stopping you? Make the decision to eat organic from now on!
