Why Organic Food is Better for You

One of the most common questions asked is why organic foods are better?

If you are uncertain about making the switch to organic foods, you may be looking for reasons why you should.

Here may be some answers to those questions.

f you are like many, there is a good chance that you have heard that organic foods are healthier to eat.

When it comes to organic foods, it is important to know that due to strict standards, not just anyone can make organic foods. 

  • Foods and organic food companies must undergo rigorous tests and meet very high standards to be able to be certified by the Quality Assurance International group (QAI).  When these standards are tested and met, all foods should be stamped with a ‘Certified Organic’ by QAI sticker or label.  This certification shows the consumer that the foods are truly organic.

Organic foods usually tastes better as well.  This is mostly due in part because vegetables and fruits are grown without the assistance of pesticides and other potentially harmful chemicals.  Clean soil, which is required when growing organic foods, is likely to produce better results, which should mean better tasting food.

Although some pesticides that farmers use are considered safe by many, there are still a number of risks, including a risk of cancer.  Although the EPA does consider many chemicals, such as weed killers and insect killers to be dangerous, they are still used on many of the foods, fruits and vegetables for example  that are sold today.  This is something you do not have to worry about when buying organic foods.

Although there are a number of benefits to eating organic foods, especially where health and wellness is concerned, many are often concerned with the cost.  Yes, organic food does cost more money, but many still consider it to be well worth the cost.  Even with the high costs of organic food, it is still possible to save money.  You can do this by using organic food coupons, searching for organic food sales.  Many stores outline their weekly sales in store sale fliers or online, with organic foods as well as other foods.  Organic food coupons can be found online or in weekend newspapers ads, something to keep an eye out for.
