Simply Organic Health

Organic produce has long been seen as an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and allows people to demonstrate their awareness in a sustainable environment.

Food scares, chemical additives and E numbers have all played a part in raising the profile of naturally produced organic produce.

10 REASONS TO EAT ORGANIC

  1. It's Healthy
    On average organic contains higher levels of Vitamin C and essential minerals such as magnesium, iron and chromium, as well as cancer fighting antioxidants.
  2. No nasty additives
    Organic food is natural and does not contain artificial sweeteners and monosodium glutamates which are banned.
  3. Avoid pesticides
    Over 400 chemical pesticides are routinely used in conventional farming. A UK Gov study has recently found high levels of pesticide residues in BABY FOOD, SPINACH, BREAD, APPLES, CELERY and CHIPS.
  4. No GMs
    Genetically modified seeds, crops etc are banned under organic standards.
  5. Reliance on drugs removed
    There is growing concern at the levels of antibiotics used on farm animals and its affect on human health.
  6. No Hidden Costs
    How many millions of euros are spent to remove chemicals from our drinking water supply, mainly as a result of pesticides used in farming.
  7. High Standards
    Organic food comes from reliable sources. All companies, and their records, are inspected at least once a year to confirm their organic status, as laid down by European law.
  8. Care for animals
    Animal welfare is taken very seriously under organic standards.
  9. Good for wildlife and the environment
    Official sources now concede that organic farming is better for wildlife, causes less pollution, and produces less carbon dioxide (main cause of global warming) and produces less dangerous waste, when compared to conventional farming.
  10. Tops for Taste
    Many people prefer organic food because they say it tastes better.
