Are Organic Foods Worth Spending the Extra Buck?

We are all conscious about our health, aren’t we? Sometimes we do experimental things that our innovative while sometimes we take rescue of an age-old tip to keep our health in pink. With the increase intake of residues of pesticides along with the food, we are unknowingly damaging our internal organs such as our liver. We need to find a solution for this. One thing is true that we can’t stop the residual intake as it is imbibed in the fruit or vegetables we eat. So, is there any alternate, a substitute that can fill in conventional food’s shoe? Organic Foods might be the ultimate answer to the adulteration issues cropping up!

This is not a hidden fact that this type of food is expensive than regular ones. Why? Because they have a separate development procedure and a distinct farming technique called as organic farming. One of the common misinterpretations about organic foods is that they have more nutritive value. However, the real fact is they have the same proportions of nourishing value; it’s just that they are free from the toxic residues found in the traditional foods.

Benefits of Organic Foods

1)The food is free from any pesticide remains and thus your liver is protected from repeated toxic attacks of conventional foods.

2)It burns more calories and improves the overall immunity of the body.

3)They are easily processed by digestive system of our body compared to traditional foods due to no pesticide remains.

4)People can enjoy potato chips and other fried items provided they are of organic food material.

5)You can save environment in the mean time you have your organic food because pesticides and chemicals injected to make fruit or vegetable last longer affect the natural working of the system. Thus, they are not good in the long run.

When you shop for organic foods make sure that you check the USDA label (United States Department of Agriculture). Foods with a tag “100 percent organic” have no artificial added synthetics and the ones with “95 percent organic ingredients” have minor additives; both are eligible to be marked USDA organic stamp. Other food products marked “made with organic ingredients” have close to 70 percent organic stuff but they are out of the list of USDA certified organic foods.

There are stores of conventional foods wherein the sales person tries to convince a customer on buying it by saying that government has set certain rules about the use of pesticide and only ‘safer’ pesticides are used. Maybe he is right, but the bitter truth is you can’t say that two pesticide treated food products are safer when they are cooked together. Chemicals do react and we aren’t aware of what by-products they would release in the food that can harm us.

The final call rests with you whether to switch or not to switch for organic foods.
