Eat organic, heal...anything - by Emily Main


Eat organic, heal...anything


Diabetes, cancer, Parkinson's disease, infertility, obesity--there seems to be no end to the ill health effects attributed to the synthetic pesticides used on nonorganic food. And that's just on the adults who eat them. Pesticides have been linked to lower IQs and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children, and there's some suspicion that pesticides on food may play a role in the development of autism. Then there's the planet: Organic farming sequesters more carbon from the atmosphere than chemical farming, and requires fewer greenhouse-gas-emitting petroleum-based fertilizers. So simply by looking for that telltale green-and-white USDA Organic seal, you're doing yourself and the planet a world of good.

Without a shadow of a doubt I am super familiar with organic foods healing anything and everything but there is one key thing that makes it challenging....what's that you ask? Money!  Organic veggies, fruits, etc. are super freaking expensive.  When you are on a tight budget because of all of your ailments how can one afford to fix the ailments with the food you eat.  It is a definite vicious cycle.
