Is anybody else here really into organic and natural food? It seems a lot safer to me, to consume things that were not cultivated with synthetic fertilizers or any other kinds of chemicals. I imagine many of these chemicals could be carcinogenic and linked to causing illness in the long run. Anybody else agree with this sentiment?

Yes, I'm into organic and natural foods. They are better for the body's digestive tract. Organic and natural foods take longer to digest which means you won't get hungry too often. They are safer to eat because they don't contain the chemicals that processed foods have. You are eating it the way its made. When you eat processed foods, they digest in the body so fast that you will get hungry again fast. This is why I prefer to eat less processed and consume more wholesome foods. You get more energy too.

Yaa, agavenectar, i fully agree with you. Organic crops tend to have higher nutrient content and organic feed improves the general health and disease resistance of farm animals. there have been studies that animals fed orginacally have slight improvements over those fed conventionally in mortality rate , body and organ weight , reproductive organs and fertility. Organic meat , poultry, eggs and diry products come from animlas that are not given antibiotics or growth harmones. Organic foods are environmental friendly , since organic farming promotes the use of renewable resources, as well as soil and water conservation. I think, the great time to begin eating organic food is before you become pregnant, by choosing to go organic is a wise decision at anytime. Although i also know and have seen as well as read, that, organic foods have not been healthier, proponents claim that they taste better and have more nutrients than conventionally produced foods.
