There have been a few studies recently that claim there is no difference between eating organic and non-organic foods, but I think the researchers are making a mistake.
Healthy human bodies have defenses to remove toxins from our bodies before the toxins can be digested. Folks who are sick, though, don’t. Neither do folks who have non-optimal gut flora. Wherever digestion is impaired, the toxic load increases. A high toxin load increases the risk of cancer.
I think researchers should study folks who have fibromyalgia, IBS, M.S., Alzheimer’s, as well as anyone on the autistic spectrum. I believe folks like us have got toxic load.
Compare an organic vs. non-organic diet on us. That’s where you’ll see the difference.
I’d still choose an organic diet. It’s an investment in your future. You can’t know now healthy you are, not really, not until much further down the road. By that time it’s a lot harder to turn things around.
I’ve been tested and am too high in several toxins. I only started on an organic diet in the late 1990’s, and anyway, who can afford a 100% organic diet?
To try to flush the toxins, I’m drinking Everyday Detox tea by Traditional Medicinals and also taking Pectosol Chelation Complex by ecoNugenics as recommended by my alternative medicine doctor.
Think carefully about your health and level of chronic stress. If you're relatively healthy, your immune system can do a lot with non-organic foods. But if you need to boost your health, head to the organic aisle.
