Health Tips - Organic Food

 
Organic Food

Patients often ask me this question:  “Should I buy organic food?”As a teacher of mine once said, “Would it be okay to make a great meal and spray a little RAID on it?”

From the United States Environmental Protection Agency:

“Laboratory studies show that pesticides can cause health problems, such as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time. Some pesticides also pose unique health risks to children.”

Pesticides used on food include:

  1. Insecticides to control insects
  2. Rodenticides to control rodents
  3. Herbicides to control weeds
  4. Fungicides to control mold and fungus
  5. Antimicrobials to control bacteria

Best of all, organic food usually tastes better!
