Why Eat Organic
From Innovative Medicine in New York:
One study showed that organic fruits and veggies contain 27% more vitamin C, 21.1% more iron, 29.3% more magnesium, 13.6% more phosphorus, and 18% more polyphenols than non-organic fruits and veggies.
HELPS TO PREVENT DISEASE
Research shows organic crops have higher levels of cancer-fighting antioxidants. How much more? Approximately 69% more flavonones, 50% more flavonols, and 19% more phenolic acids.
The use of pesticides is truly rampant. These toxic elements make their way into our bodies and can act as neurotoxins that may contribute to chronic neurodegenerative disorders, most notably Parkinson’s disease. Pesticides are found four times more frequently and in higher amounts in conventional crops versus organic crops.
