Organic Food and Alkaline Water

We all see organic products in the grocery store.

These days labeling and packaging foods with the word “organic” on it instantly makes the product a hot seller…

…so you can imagine the challenge that us as consumers have trying to manage and stay updated on the different manufactures that support organic labeling and weeding out those who are less then honest in their labeling processes.

Organically certified foods are supposed to be grown without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, GMOs, radiation, or growth hormones as well as free from other unnatural growth methods.

Foods that are grown organically have a much higher nutritional value than foods that are not. Organically grown fruits and vegetables potentially contain 40% more antioxidants according to a Government’s Pesticide Residues Committee study and that’s the #2 reason why I believe we should all eat as organic as possible. The #1 reason is that it is naturally based on the laws of the universe.

In an article on it mentions that faucet and bottled processed water, higher air pollution and elevated levels of stress are keeping your body more toxic and acidic (the ideal environment for breeding disease).

So it only makes sense to eat as organically as possible in addition to doing a full body cleanse, detoxing your body periodically and keeping yourself alkaline to ensure better

See, non-organic foods that were grown using radiation methods can change the chemistry of the food itself, some say even potentially promoting cancer.  When you do things outside of the laws of the universe, it can cause dis-ease to show up in a number of ways.

Foods that were not grown organically can be genetically modified, meaning they are different than the food you are intending to buy; or to put it bluntly its not food, even pigs know the difference between real food and GMO products, they wont touch it.

You would think that the USDA would better regulate these processes, however their resources are stretched thin considering all that they have to manage and regulate.

The big draw back to organic produce…

Often times, organic produce can be less appealing to the eye… nature
has a funny way of doing that. Also it can be more costly.

But don’t let appearance fool you…try eating them before discounting
them. Some argue that they can actually taste the difference in
organic produce and meats.

Whether you can taste the difference or not, I can tell you that your
body will certainly experience the benefits of organic eating.

In fact, one study performed at the University of Washington compared
the urine of children who ate organic food with urine of children who ate
conventional food.

The results found that kids who ate an organic diet were exposed to six to
nine times fewer toxic pesticides than their conventional-eating peers.

Now keep in mind that these toxic pesticides in large amounts have
been linked to bone and brain cancer – yet they are being used day in
and day out on the foods you may be feeding yourself and your family.

It’s no wonder why people these days are far more acidic than ever
before – which in turn creates the perfect environment for disease to flourish.
