Is eating organic necessary? Are organic foods any healthier than non-organic foods?

It depends on your definition of healthy. Research shows that non-organic foods and organic foods have similar vitamin and mineral content. For most people, the conversation ends there. 

For us, vitamin and mineral content isn't the only parameter of health that we look at when deciding whether or not to buy organic. Not only is it important to consume adequate vitamins and minerals, but its just as important to avoid chemicals that can contribute to disease.

Yes, we're talking about pesticides.

Did you know that certain pesticides can mimic estrogen in your body and contribute to a condition known as estrogen dominance? Estrogen dominance has been linked to breast cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), increased belly fat, and many more conditions. 

In this episode, we dig deep into the research and discuss why ORGANIC IS NOT BS. 

 

Enjoy and share with all of the naysayers ;)
