Organic Is More Security Than I’ve Ever Seen
I’m no foodie. My mouth doesn’t water at the thought of a juicy porterhouse steak drizzled in A1 sauce, and I don’t long for a buttery corn on the cob in the summer. I enjoy food, but more so its simplicity. I’d much rather dive into a tomato/cucumber/avocado salad, accompanied by a baked sweet potato. I respect the preferences of others — many of the people in my life are committed foodies, but I maintain a regimen that works for me. Healthy, satisfying, and simple.
Choosing to eat organic has become a way of life. A means of fostering the mind, body connection.
Ever experience the onset of a headache and dwell on it far too much? That minor headache turns into a full blown migraine. This is the mind, body connection. The way our bodies react is a direct connection to how we think and perceive. When I know that I am consuming quality ingredients that are not GMO (genetically modified organism), my mind and body are in harmony. I know that what I am directly absorbing will give me greater energy, clearer skin, a stronger immune system, and an overall healthier existence.
For too long, advertisers have told us pesticides are OK. We should ‘lower our standards.’ We’ve adapted to an agricultural system that is overridden with toxins — forget the manufactured, preservative ridden foods we leave in our pantries for weeks and months on end. We have been duped by major corporations like Monsanto to believe that modified ‘food’ and neurotoxins (damaging to the brain and nerve cells) won’t have any affect. They’ve done an excellent job pulling a fast one on the American public, but it’s time we get smart, and realize none of this is OK. In reality, we are gambling with our lives. Consumers of genetically modified foods are guinea pigs for corporations, and are participants in what is perhaps the greatest experimentation with human lives.
