Organic Food, Sing About It
We couldn’t resist this post on organic food. If you want to hear all the reasons about why we, as consumers, should use our purchase power and choose organic food, here it is. Everything you need to know all rapped up with a catchy soundtrack. Show it to your children, show it to your friends, it’s all good stuff.
President and CEO of Stonyefield Farm (the largest US producer of organic yoghurt) Gary Hirshberg, and a group of US moms from Stoneyfield, have come together to tell it like it is. From modern agricultural practices to the effects of fast food, Gary outlines the major benefits of eating organically from improved health and wellbeing to a cleaner and safer environment.
Point to remember: Check out the labels on the food you buy. Do you really want to eat substances that you can’t even pronounce, or know what they are? The adage is true – you are what you eat. And don’t forget, you have the choice of what you put into your body.
“The really scary stuff is things we cannot see: pesticides, fertilisers, hormones, drugs and herbicides – accumulating in our earth as well as our insides.”
Meat, fruit and vegetables can all contain toxic additives. You cannot wash out these additives as they are inside the produce, not just on the skin. Do you think there could be a link between the rise in cancer since the 1940′s and the changes in which we grow and rear our food? The only way to be sure your food is clear from harmful synthetics is to buy organic – better for you, for your family and for your planet. Go and make your choice when you shop.
