Making the best decisions at the grocery shop for your family and yourself can frequently be challenging. There are so many options available, and they all appear to have the same purpose: to feed you.
However, the majority of the items at your grocery shop frequently come with a variety of other additional hidden prices. At Nature's Path, we are firm believers in the benefits of organics and have compiled a list of the ways they can support your journey to better health and happiness.
The organic certification not only ensures there are no dangerous chemicals on our food, but also ensures there are no GMOs in them. GMOs are frequently created, among other things, to be combined with a single dangerous agent, like Agent Orange or Round Up. Shopping organic is a protest against the massive chemical-producing companies that have contaminated the world's food supply and agricultural lands.
ACT NOW to ensure the labelling of GMOs.
The same way that your grocery store decisions affect your health, they also affect the health of the planet. Foods that are not organic are sprayed with incredibly deadly chemicals, which destroy everything but the crop itself. This comprises the living things that plants require to develop and create nutrient-rich soil. Following the eradication of such organisms, synthetic fertilisers comprised of—you guessed it—more hazardous chemicals are used in their place.
Nature always adjusts. Spraying pesticides on bugs to destroy them just encourages their growth and adaptation to resist the terrible toxins we use to do so. The plant will always be eaten by something, and it will keep evolving and growing until we can no longer control it. Over time, the chemicals we use will lose their effectiveness, and pests and plants will become far more dangerous.
Herbicides and pesticides simply kill all insects, making no distinction between good and bad bugs. A specific amount of biodiversity, which includes everything from the largest mammals to the smallest invertebrates, must be preserved for there to be life on earth. Healthy growing methods are used in organic farming in an effort to preserve the required amount of biodiversity.
Organic food production has no negative effects on the neighbourhood where it is cultivated. Organic methods prevent pollutants from entering the air, drinking water, and soil, in contrast to non-organic methods. Herbicides and insecticides aren't used on farmers all day, and buying food locally saves money and cuts emissions from transportation.
