Despite what experts have to say about organic vegetarian health foods, many people are still not convinced about the many organic food benefits for them to switch to organic foods.
One of the most common arguments against organic food is the price. We all know that organic vegetable health food is mostly sold at premium price. In these times of economic hardships, not many people can really afford to buy expensive products. Another argument that people often use against organic vegetarian health food is that these organic vegetables sold in the market are not really 100% organic so there is no point of paying premium prices on these vegetables.
Yes, these arguments are valid to some degree but we have to understand that there are two sides of the coin. If you do not eat organic food, you will most likely ingest a lot of chemical residues from conventionally produced products. Although you will not feel sick right away after ingesting small amounts of chemical residues, your health will eventually suffer in the long run. Experts believe that the rising cases of cancer all over the world may have something to do with the kind of food that we eat. Chemical residues are some of the worst culprits in this case. To reduce the risk of cancer, we need to stir away from those products that are laden with chemicals. There is really no point of going vegetarian if you will only end up eating those conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. We know for a fact that these conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are exposed to chemical sprays and fertilizers that even if we wash them several times, we cannot remove all the chemicals in them.
How Do You Know That You Are Eating Real Organic Vegetarian Health Food?
There are a number of ways to ensure that you eat only 100% organic vegetarian health food. First, you should look of the seal of the United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic seal. Only those products that bear the organic seal of the USDA are considered 95%-100% organic. As per the rules and regulations set by the USDA, only those organic vegetarian health food products that use at least 95% organic ingredients should bear the organic seal of the agency.
BEWARE: Consumers must still check the food package label to determine the country of origin. It’s been reported that USDA Organic labeled food from China doesn’t necessarily guarantee organic as inspectors in China do not follow the same standards as those in the U.S.
Another way to ensure that you get real organic vegetarian health food is to produce your own vegetables at home. If you love gardening and you have a backyard where you can produce vegetables, then by all means, do so. Not only will you have enough supply of organic vegetarian health food at home if you plant your own vegetables, you also save a lot of money.
