Pesticide free

Conventional fruits and vegetables usually contain pesticide residues. These compounds accumulate through the food chain in products such as meat and eggs. Pesticides used in developed countries are regulated. However, the evidence suggests that even authorised levls of pesticides can cause cancer y and premature death. They have also beenassociated with attention disorders in children..

Organic farmers replace pesticides with natural methods to combat pests. For example, they introduce beneficial insects in the crops which control pests in nature.

No genetically modified crops

A recent animal study showed that the consumption of genetically modified maize causes tumors in mice and damages the organism.In many parts of the world, the sale of genetically modified products has been accepted without sufficient research on the possible effects on human health.

No artificial ingredients

A recent study has shown that artificial colourings and sodium benzoate, which is frequently used in ready meals, can cause hyperactivity and attention problems in children. Animal studies have linked artificial compounds such as sulphates, benzoates, nitrates, sodium glutamate, and BHA to asthma, urticaria or cancer, and they may have similar effects in humans. The growth hormone used to increase milk production has been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in women.

More nutritious

Organic fruits and vegetables grow slower in natural and rich soil but they can absorb a greater amount of minerals. Some studies have also proven a higher concentration of vitamins. Besides, we are learning more and more about the positive effects of phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables, many of which have an antioxidant or anti-inflammatory effect. Its effectiveness for anti-aging and to avoid cardiovascular diseases, degenerative diseases and cancer is under investigation. Plants produce these compounds in stress situations due to the lack of nutrients. In conventional agriculture, plants are overflown with artificial nutrients, so they do not have the conditions to produce these phytochemicals. However, organic farming does promote the natural production of these compounds. The University of Barcelona proved that . Decrease cancer and brain haemorrhage by 50% and increase children’s intelligence.

What to do Make sure you eat at least 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables every day. Much better if they are organic!
