By choosing healthy over skinny, you are choosing self-love over self-judgement.—Says Steve Maraboli
Back in days when there were fewer fertilizers and pesticides (because of their availability and costs) farmers used to farm-fresh fruits and vegetables with organic methods. Although there was no term such as organic, yet farmers were pursuing it on a daily basis.
Food, back then was more nutrient, rich, no adulteration, no preservatives, this trend of farming kept people healthy. With fewer preservatives, containing food makes less chemical reactions in the body. With a natural diet, natural healthy state of mind, body and soul improves.
Now, with the growing population, growing demand and less supply. People are becoming the host of different types of health issues. Most concerning of w/c are those new antibiotic drug-resistant microbes. 60% of which are being consumed directly via the food we eat. These growing percentages of microbes in the foods are due to the process of farming that is being followed. Every plate with a nutrient-rich diet on it is 80% adulteration and preservatives and the other 20% are nutrients. People are now getting aware of the issues with their food and are moving forward and adopting the same old method with modern technology- organic food!
Although the term “organic food ” is new, its effects are old and consistent as farming. Here we will be seeing some organic food facts and myths related to it:
