Your grab your keys, climb into your car, list is nicely packed in your purse and your off....You arrive at the supermarket, list in hand. You start at the vegetable and fruit section and as you go to grab a bag of apples
you stop... The sign in front of the apples reads
"conventionally grown" and "organically grown"
which one do you choose? The conventionally grown apples are cheaper than the organic apples so you shrug your shoulders and grab the cheaper bag. As you make your way to the dairy section you look over your list and notice that you need milk, cheese and eggs. As you approach the milk section you see the store brand milk, as well as organic milk. Not only that you see a picture of a goat and the label displays goat milk! The store brand is the cheapest, then the organic and then the goat milk. Since you are on a budget you grab the store brand and never look back.
What's the big deal you ask? Why not grab the cheaper product instead of paying more for organic? Once you learn about what these companies are putting into those products you buy, i promise you that you will only want to buy organic food from now on. I discovered organic food when i was 19 years old. Before that i would eat anything. I would look for low fat snacks, never realizing that when they advertise low fat what they really are doing is taking out the fat and replacing it with chemicals and sugar!!! I want to warn everyone to NEVER buy a product that has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it. It was banned in many countries, including the US in the early 1900's. A lot of countries still ban it but they US has started using it again. It has been linked with cancer and obesity to name a few. Rule of thumb, if you cant pronounce the ingredient that is listed do NOT buy it!!!
I am going to copy a few links that will go into detail about organic foods, genetically engineered foods, growth hormones and antibiotics that are added to our milks and cheeses and so on. It's time to wake up and look at what you are putting into your body. I would recommend a juice fast for everyone that is able to cleanse out those toxins that have been accumulating over the years. I will also copy some links that go into more detail about that. Remember everyone, the TRUTH is what sets you free....stop living in ignorance!!!! Set yourself free...
