What is organic exactly?

According to Merriam-Webster definition, “Organic is of, related to or obtained from a living thing(s). It is grown or made without artificial chemicals.” Organic food is a way that farmers grow and process agriculture such as fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat without using artificial chemicals. According to the USDA, The “Certified Organic” label on foods says that it should be 95% or more organic which more specifically means free of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, dyes and must not be processed using industrial solvents, irradiation or genetically engineering.”

Let’s dissect this for a sec: Our body is made up of billions if not trillions of cells that are living. Cells=life. If organic food, meaning food from the earth that is pure, one ingredient, without chemicals and is considered “a living thing” goes into our bodies…what’s the result? LIFE! A living substance that is digested into our bodies creates more cells therefore, producing better quality of life. Living foods bring nourishment, better immunity and contribute to overall health and wellness. Organic foods have actual living, breathing cells that contribute to the energy and stamina that are bodies need to function at it’s best. If we eat foods with chemicals or pesticides aka: DEAD foods that do not bring life, it will subtract or alter the amount of living cells we have in our body. Therefore, eating mostly dead food will lower our white blood count and make us susceptible to a variety of diseases, autoimmune disorders, mental illnesses and even cancer. THIS IS WHY ORGANIC EATING is so important! Here is a list that I keep on my fridge to remind me what to buy organically:
