Get more bang for your buck with organic foods
Big Food wants you believe that going organic is a waste of your hard-earned money.
They’ve pushed deceptive marketing campaigns to trick Americans into believing that food is just food – and that there’s no reason to avoid their chemical-coated, genetically modified junk pumped full of drugs and hormones.
But new research shows that when you shell out extra cash for organics, you’re not just getting a word on a label.
You’re getting MORE bang for your buck, as organic foods are richer in nutrition than the mass-produced garbage that’s your only alternative.
The new review of 67 studies on meat finds organics have higher levels of the omega-3 fatty acids that can cut your risk of heart disease, boost your vision, and even help protect your brain from cognitive decline and dementia.
Even better, organic meats also have lower levels of key saturated fats linked to heart disease risk.
The newest study also looked at the difference between organic milk and regular milk, and once again organics wins. Like meat, organic milk has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
And it’s not just your meat and meat products – because the same team has previously looked into organic fruits and vegetables and found the same exact thing. The extra money is getting you safer, better, healthier foods.
Organic produce has 60 percent more of the essential antioxidants your body needs. Those are what helps your body fight off the free radicals that cause cellular damage…that ultimately leads to chronic disease.
Organics, by law, have to be completely natural – no GMOs, and no GMO-linked chemicals, either.
You see, some conventional crops – especially corn – are created specifically to withstand being doused with high levels of a powerful herbicide call glyphosate, which the World Health Organization’s cancer agency has declared a “probable carcinogen.”
Even if the food itself were safe, you could be getting dosed with this and other similarly dangerous chemicals with every bite.
GMO foods haven’t been thoroughly tested in humans, but the little we know is alarming enough. They’ve been linked to damage to cellular systems in the body, which can in turn set the stage for any number of diseases, from cancer to Parkinson’s.
So, if you can afford to do so, load up on your organic fruits and veggies at the store, or visit your local organic farm stand and get them straight from the source. That’s also a great way to know where your meat and milk are coming from as well.
That said, I really don’t recommend drinking animal milk. We simply weren’t designed to digest it, and it shows in the high levels of dairy sensitivities out there (most of which are undiagnosed).
If you want something similar – and far healthier – try a nut-based milk substitute such as organic almond milk instead.
