Simply put, organic foods have a higher nutritional content than non-organic foods because of the way that they are grown.
Organic farming ensures that the plants are sown in mineral-rich soils and without the use of pesticides, like roundup. Pesticides will literally kill and destroy all living organisms! They kill off the very things that make the plants healthy and nutrient dense. Not to mention, that we absorb the unhealthy pesticides that are embedded in the plants. These are the main reasons to choose organic foods for yourself and your family.
There is a beautiful symbiosis present in mineral-rich soil where there is an ecosystem of microbes that feed off of the minerals. This makes the minerals more bioavailable for the plants to feed off of. These microbes help and enable the plant to extract more nutrients from the earth. Therefore, when we eat these plants we will benefit from all of the nutrients! This increases our body’s absorption of the nutrients and improves our digestion of the foods. It’s a win-win! This short video explains the relationship between microbes and healthy soil.
Industrial agriculture has adopted many unhealthy non-organic farming practices that are literally ruining our soils and causing what is referred to as desertification (fertile land becoming desert). Besides decreasing the value of our food these practices are the biggest contributor to global warming!
There is a must see documentary on Netflix that explains it all in a very palatable way. Spoiler alert: There is hope!
“Kiss The Ground” A beautiful and well-done piece of work! Here is a link to the trailer:
Please pass this on to your friends and family. We all need to be educated on the benefits of organic farming so that we can then be on the same page to manifest positive change at this crucial juncture to reverse global warming and its consequences! Together, we can all learn how it’s possible to preserve our beautiful planet earth for generations to come. Enjoy!
Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,
