Watch What Happens To Your Body When You Switch To Organic Food

This family never ate organic food because it was more expensive. Swedish grocery chain Coop in cooperation with Environmental Research Institute IVL enlisted  them for a very interesting experiment. They switched all their food with organic food for 2 weeks to demonstrate the difference eating organic makes by testing their urine before and after. The result surprised and disgusted everyone. Organic food was also recently found to be irrefutably higher in cancer-preventing antioxidants (full study). Considering the study presented in this video in addition to the higher antioxidant profile it’s about time for everyone who values their health to switch to an organic diet.

So the brand and agency Forsman & Bodenfors enlisted the Palmbergs, a typical Swedish family, to participate in a three-week experiment switching from conventional food to organic. The first week the five members of the family ate their usual non-organic meals, and gave urine samples each day. In independent tests conducted by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL, eight of a chosen 12 pesticides showed up in their systems. Then the Palmbergs switched to 100% organic food for two weeks. New urine samples were taken, and after a few days almost all of the pesticides were gone.

The increased use of pesticides and the sky-rocketing disease rate in America is a huge correlation that cannot be ignored any longer. Of course it’s best not to depend on legislation to protect you and your family. The best step you can take after deciding to eat organically is to grow as much of your own food as possible. Even if you’ve never grown anything before it’s never too late to start and can be quite easy, enjoyable, and rewarding.

Second to growing your own finding your nearest farmers’ market has become a must for the health-conscious consumer. Eat as seasonally and locally as possible, meet your farmer, and grow your own clean nutritious organic food. This is real healthcare and your family’s health is worth it.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the abstract of what is considered to be the most comprehensive study comparing organic to conventional food published in the British Journal of Nutrition this past September. These solid findings didn’t receive as much press as they deserved. Show this to any friends or family that still eat conventional food.
  • “In the present study, we carried out meta-analyses based on 343 peer-reviewed publications that indicate statistically significant and meaningful differences in composition between organic and non-organic crops/crop-based foods. Most importantly, the concentrations of a range of antioxidants such as polyphenolics were found to be substantially higher in organic crops/crop-based foods, with those of phenolic acids, flavanones, stilbenes, flavones, flavonols and anthocyanins being an estimated 19 (95 % CI 5, 33) %, 69 (95 % CI 13, 125) %, 28 (95 % CI 12, 44) %, 26 (95 % CI 3, 48) %, 50 (95 % CI 28, 72) % and 51 (95 % CI 17, 86) % higher, respectively. Many of these compounds have previously been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including CVD and neurodegenerative diseases and certain cancers, in dietary intervention and epidemiological studies. Additionally, the frequency of occurrence of pesticide residues was found to be four times higher in conventional crops, which also contained significantlyhigher concentrations of the toxic metal Cd. Significant differences were also detected for some other (e.g. minerals and vitamins) compounds…”
