Organic Food – Fuel For Health


As a follow-up to the article The Organic Effect below (, a little more about organic foods.

The switch to and benefits of organic foods – fresh, frozen and canned – seems to be an increasingly popular topic trend in both main stream media and specific health/diet journal publications.  However, as in most life or lifestyle choices, it pays to check out the details.

The paradox of the benefits offered by the more expensive organic food choice is you’re paying extra for what you’re not getting.  Organic foods seem to have a similar nutritional value compared to current-practice mass produced food.  What you are paying extra for is the absence of the chemicals used to achieve highest production rates in mass produced foods – the toxic fungicides, herbicides, artificial fertilizers, pesticides as well as preservatives post-production to prolong shelf life and profit.  The practice of warehousing fresh produce for up to six months, or harvesting whilst green and then force-ripening with gas seems to be increasing.
