I have a question for you….Have you ever complained that organic food is too expensive?
Would you ever tell your child to not go to university because it is too expensive?
That’s because you realize that there is something to be said for spending money on things that are a good investment.
When we don’t look at food as an investment in our health, organic food may be expensive.
But once you factor in all the other costs involved with buying non-organic, pesticide laden products, the investment becomes much clearer.
It also doesn’t help that the toxic burden of the chemicals we are exposed to never show up until months or years of exposure.
Pesticides, herbicides and the like are linked more and more to many of the chronic health problems that we see today. Asthma, allergies, infertility, obesity, cancer, and many more.
Still not convinced?
There are also many ways to make buying organic food more budget friendly.
Here are 3 of my favorites:
Finally, I hope you check out this video that illustrates better than I could ever convey with words why organic food matters.
Now I would love to hear from you! What is one thing that you can do to incorporate more organic food in your diet? Leave a comment below and I’ll be back next week with another edition of Doctor as Teacher Tuesday!
