1. Avoid Toxic Chemicals
The National Academy of Sciences report recently stated that over 85% of the non natural chemical compounds applied to foods for human consumption have not been tested for the negative longer term health effects on humans before being approved as safe for consumption.
2. Nutritional Benefit
Compared with commercially grown food, natural food has much higher amounts of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other naturally beneficial compounds simply because the soil is looked after and well fertilised with good practices by responsible farmers maintaining high quality standards. in organic foods crops. On average, organically grown foods provide: 20+% more iron, 25% more vitamin C; 29% more magnesium and 12.5% more phosphorus.
3. Superior Taste
Natural grown foods taste infinitely better than non-organic so just from the perspective of personal pleasure aside from health the organic food is the best tasting by far.
4. Avoiding Harmful GMO
Genetically engineered (GE) food and genetically modified organisms (GMO) are ruining our food supply and are an abomination to nature and need to be stomped on, however they are being put on shelves at an alarming rate and many GMO foods do not have to be labelled in USA which is terrible. Naturally grown food cannot be genetically modified and so by choosing organic food means you protect yourself from genetically engineered food.
5. Preserve Nature
Natural farming supports an ecological balance totally in harmony with nature. The preservation of soil and crop rotation keep the land healthy for our children and future well being in a healthy and chemical free eco system. All of the wildlife, insects, mammals and soil micro-organisms benefit and flourish as nature meant it to be.
6. Reduce Pollution & Protect Water + Soil
Agricultural chemical compounds and man made pesticides/fertilisers are spoiling our environment, poisoning our water & ruining the value of farming lands across the planet at an alarming rate.
