Organic Grown Food, Is It Better For You Really?
The answer to the above question is an absolute, loud, resounding YES!
There are many (not just the Monsanto paid) critics of organic grown food. They all may think they have a good argument, or so it would seem on the surface. But, when you get down to the nitty-gritty of their arguments, they are all full of holes. How is organic food made? And, how is organic food processed? These are the main questions you should ask yourself when you consider eating the food that is sold at the grocery store or supermarket.
Go back to the good old days. Do you remember an old neighbor or relative growing their own food in the back yard? They knew what was best for the family. They knew to trust the food they grew and exactly what went into it. So, here’s a great tip: whenever possible, eat your own grown, then, consume only organic!
There are 10 good reasons to eat locally grown organic food and they are listed below:
1. Organic grown food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods. Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, calcium, iron, magnesium and most other vitamins and minerals.
2. Organic grown food is free of Poisons – the brain and nerve cells are damaged by poisons like pesticides.
3. Organic grown food proves Children perform better than kids eating “normally grown foods.” Since the blood cells renew every three months, and the muscle cells renew every six months, the cells use whatever fuel you supply them (at that time) to regenerate. Why put in the garbage fuel at the most important times of growth and regeneration?
4. Organic grown food reduces your risk of cancer. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides potentially cancer-causing. It is really that simple! If you read no more, go away from knowing this fact!
5. Organic grown food has no GMO factory. Almost 20% of GMO seeds are engineered to produce their own pesticides. Yuck, right? Well, it gets worse! The GMO seeds continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them…wait, WHAT? I know, it’s outrageous!
6. Organic grown food helps our water supply. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors pesticides that pollute our water supplies. More than 50% of Americans drink polluted water and more than 75% of Americans bath in polluted water. This is mostly due to water runoffs from pesticides and fertilizers from farms!
7. *Organic grown food simply tastes better than the pesticide and GMO grown counterparts.
8. Organic grown food has no exposure to gas-ripening like most bananas, and some fruits and vegetables. Studies have found these harmful gasses kill more than just bugs…
9. Organic grown food is all natural and blessed by God. It is the way things were always intended to be. By some estimates genetically-modified food makes up 80% of the average person’s food consumption. While genetic modification of food is still experimental, it is proven that the modified foods do not fit our genetic code. Therefore, the benefits of the food are lost and new detriments introduced.

So, with all 10 valuable points in mind, how can anyone rationally consume poisoned food? It happens every day in America. That is why we are such a sick nation in need of healthcare reform. We can’t afford to pay for the sick anymore, because everyone is sick! Sure, we can live longer with “Big Pharma” and the advances in science, but diseases are increasing due to diet and pollution. These are the facts and they are indisputable!
I will compare my home grown organic foods, like my tomatoes, to any food you have ever had! There is a huge difference organic food makes to the foods flavor. And, better than that, my tomatoes are blessed with the pride and loving care that comes through in the foods flavor as well! So, you may ask, how is organic food good for you? Simple, I put no poisons on my food and that’s how organic food is healthier than other foods.
Recently, actor Matthew McConaughey, had to modify his diet to lose some weight for a Hollywood film. He says that through the process he discovered that his diet had more of an impact on his weight loss than his exercise regime did. “I’m doing cardio but I’ll tell you what, the more I’ve learned… it’s 90 % diet,” he explained. “It’s 90 % food amount and then what you’re eating because right now I’m not losing any more weight if I burn 1,500 calories — two hours of cardio in an afternoon — or if I don’t. It doesn’t matter. It’s a matter of how much I eat or how little I eat.” Contained within the food, there must be a concentration of essential vitamins and minerals for optimal results. Eating organic food is the only way I know to modify your diet and achieve your target weight without compromising nutrition!
Additionally, recent studies have found that children introduced to conventional food have higher incidents of Eczema and Allergies. Furthermore, there are other studies that show longevity and fertility are increased with organic grown food vs conventional food. So, why take the chance with your children? Organic Grown Food should be an every day part of your life. You should grow as much as you can, yourself, in your own yard and feed it to your children. Then, when you need more organic grown food, just call us!
*REMEMBER: The best reason to eat organic grown food is the same reason to drink organic grown tea and the same reason for enjoying organic grown wines – they just taste better!

Here’s What Is Being Delivered…
Here are some food facts sure to make you change your mind about the way you eat…
10 Disgusting Food Facts Sure To Turn Your Stomach!
1. Your bread may contain an ingredient derived from human hair. L-cysteine, an amino acid, is a common ingredient used as a processing aid in bread products. The main sources for the manufacture of this additive are human hair and duck feathers. Yum!
2. It’s inevitable that some insects are going to get into your food. Still, when you see in the actual FDA regulations that ten insects and 35 fruit fly eggs per 8 oz. of raisins is totally cool, it turns your stomach a little.
3. Hot dogs have a reputation for being made from the parts of the cow there’s no way you’d eat (and that’s probably true), but the chicken nugget should be the go-to example of gross meat products. Nuggets are made from “meat slurry,” a liquefied meat product which is as appetizing as it sounds, and are then molded into the familiar shapes we all know. You could say it’s an efficient way of using the whole chicken. You could also say it’s totally gross.
4. Are you enjoying some toast with apple butter right now? You might want to put it down. The FDA allows four rodent hairs per 100 grams. Curry powder, allspice, and ground pepper are also allowed to have more rodent hairs than you’d probably like to eat.
5. When you pick out that nice red steak at the grocery store, you’re choosing it because it looks fresh, but will it taste as fresh? It’s hard to know because a lot of meat is treated with carbon monoxide to keep it from turning color. That doesn’t mean the meat is bad, but it does mean that it’s not as fresh as you’d been led to believe. Also pretty disgusting is the fact that The meat industry has become reliant on antibiotics. The reason? Poor diet and living conditions mean that many animals that make it on to our table were really sick. For example, 13 percent of feedlot cattle have abscessed livers.
6. All food has some bacteria on it, but because of over-reliance on antibiotics in feedlots, livestock have developed a number of drug resistant strains of common diseases like staph infections. What’s disturbing is that, according to NPR, a recent survey of meat in grocery stores found 1 in 4 samples contained these drug resistant bacteria. What’s worse is when you buy ground beef, you’re sort of expecting that it was a cut of beef that’s been ground. Ammonia or no, it’s gross to find out that what you’re paying good money for has been cut with meat sludge.
7. Your salad dressing might have the heavy metal titanium dioxide in it. Titanium dioxide belongs in your paint and sunscreen not your food. Food manufacturers add it to things like salad dressing, creamers, and icing to make them appear whiter.
8. Food dye is used in many prepared foods. But I think a lot of people will be off put by the fact that the dye is made from cochineal, which is in fact made from ground up beetles.
9. Rennet is a group of enzymes for digesting mother’s milk and a crucial part of making cheese. Rennet for cheese making is obtained by slicing up a calf’s stomach, soaking it in whey and wine or vinegar, and then filtering it. Totally gross!
10. Castoreum is a common additive, and it is made from beaver anal glands. Castoreum is an extract that shows up in baked goods, especially as vanilla flavoring. Mmmmmm…Delicious!
