Our sugar detox is in full swing as we are beginning to focus on transforming our pantries. It has been an eye-opening week, getting into the types of food we can play with and why we’re refraining from others. A glaring problem we’ve noted is the importance of organic eating.
Organic food is noticeably more expensive; you wonder, is it even worth it?
That is a fair question. First, what is the difference between organic and inorganic? Pesticides. The EPA and the FDA have approved well over 900 different pesticides deeming them safe to grow our food with, while the EPA has multiple sections on their website concerning the management of farmer pesticide poisoning. How is that safe? These chemicals link to:
- Cancerous tumors
- Food allergies
- Type 2 diabetes
- Endocrine Disruption
- Damage to IQ & neurobehavioral development
These are just a few of the side effects. The side effects are massive and we need to address them. Free of most pesticides, the health community widely recognizes organic as a safer option. Although some organic farmers use pesticides as a last resort, the approval process is significantly more stringent, and there are only about 25 approved chemicals versus 900! Many organic farmers refrain from pesticides altogether.
So how are you being cheated and scammed? Big biotech companies know we’re not stupid. They know we’ll eventually catch on to the fact that something’s not right, and we’ll make changes accordingly. They’re fully aware that we want healthier options than the cheap chemical-laden ingredients they market to us at large.
Organic becomes a scam when large science companies like Monsanto get involved. On the shelves of almost every grocery store, you will still find tons of “convenient, healthy options.” Vegan, keto, gluten-free, etc. They manufacture many of the packaged “organic” options with equally harmful chemicals. Food made in a lab is not food.
I encourage buying whole foods you don’t find in a pretty package because there are so many studies exposing sneaky tricks and blatant lies about what goes into our food.
The safest way to navigate your local grocery store’s aisle is not to go down it at all. The second way to filling your pantry with pure, wholesome goodness is to equip yourself with the skill of targetting buzzwords on food products. Learn the meanings behind numbers on barcodes, the millions of substitute names for things like sugar, gluten, dairy, and understanding that “natural flavors” have zero limits on what they could be (toe jam is a natural flavor)…you get it. There is immense power in learning the grocery system. It is designed expecting you to trust them blindly.
We often take research for granted, and biotech companies are taking full advantage of that, outrageously profiting without a second thought towards you, your family, or your well-being. My team and I are committed to changing that. Research is power.
