Why Does Organic Matter?

I have not been shy about the fact that for a long time, the thought of Organic and non organic foods has never really concerned me. Here are some of the reasons why.

The Negatives of buying organic foods.

  1. Expense- It is usually at least double the cost of non-organic food.
  2. Size- The product you buy is usually smaller. So, not only are you paying more, but you are getting less.
  3. Goes bad quicker- Most of the time the items that I have bought that have been Organic  (Mostly referring to produce) go bad quicker than traditional foods.
  4. Hard to find- The organic age is fairly new and finding the products you want is not always the easiest thing to do.

When you add all of these things together it is hard to spend the extra money that you may or may not have an get organic food.

I am not going to be negative Nancy and rip on the organic bandwagon. Some of my closest friends are totally organic.

After watching the video below and doing some studying I have come up with some positives for buying organic.

The Positives of buying organic foods.

  1. Your health.

That’s it. Is there really any other reason. Health is the business I am in. There have not been enough studies done over time to tell us if the pesticides and chemicals they are using are causing us problems or not.

 

The thing is I would rather get down the road in 20 years and have them tell me it was ok to have those things than have the proof come out and say the foods we were eating we causing us a slow death.

 

There is also the issue of kids. What do we want our kids to eat? Is it ok to feed out children food that has been sprayed with chemicles that will kill every know living bug? If it’s killing bugs it can’t be good for us.

 

Think about this for a minute. If you have ants or you see a roach at your house. When you get ready to spray the bug what do you tell your kids?

 

Get away!

 

Why? You don’t want them breathing in those toxic chemicals that are killing those bugs.

In essence, isn’t this what we are doing when we eat food that is not organic?  We are feeding our kids food that has been sprayed and treated with chemicals that kill bugs.

Sounds like the same thing.

 

If we knew everything that went into the pesticides and chemicals was not going to hurt us long term then I would say let’s go ahead and eat non-organic food, but we really don’t know what effect it will have on us.

QUESTION: Where have you found the best prices for organic food?
