Do We Really Need to Eat Organic?

Organic is usually more expensive than non-organic food.  Is it worth the price difference? Is it really healthier?  I believe it absolutely is better.  Many will argue that non-organic food is fine for you. How can you think that food sprayed with a ton of toxic chemicals is good for you?

My mom drove 30 miles each way once a week to get organic foods for us starting when I was five years old, over 50 years ago, way before it was popular.  She had been diagnosed with colitis, told it was incurable, and went searching for an alternative. She KNEW it was curable, despite what the doctors told her. 

So after years of trying different things, she was finally completely healed. She lived on organic fruit and vegetable juices to let her colon heal. Then she ate very healthily, cutting out all meat and dairy until it was completely healed. My cousin's son is healing his Crohns this way also!

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself given the right fuel. Food that is not organic is pesticides, herbicides and toxic fertilizers. These chemicals weren't made for the human body. There is just way too many autoimmune diseases and cancer to not be concerned. Food, in its natural state the way God made it, is perfect food for us. 

Man cannot improve upon what God made. Meat that is not organic is filled with antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides.  Cows were meant to eat grass, not grains.  Common sense tells me we should be eating grass fed meat, the way God intended.

On the news this morning was a scientist who said that unless your food is labeled organic, it is filled with hormones, chemicals, preservatives, etc.  The foods have been tested and are only allowed by the FDA to be labeled organic ONLY if they are free from all these harmful things.

Cancer is expensive. It is a terrible disease.  Toxic chemicals hurt your immune system's ability to fight cancer.  A healthy immune system is crucial in fighting off disease.  I am not afraid of germs. A healthy immune system is also the best way to protect yourself from germs.

So do everything in your ability to have a healthy immune system. Cut out eating at restaurants, going to movies, etc. if it is the only way you can buy organic food. Losing your health is not fun. Being healthy is wonderful and you have a lot to do with how healthy you are, so start taking responsibility for your health.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper 
and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.
3 John 2
