“Health is not valued till sickness comes.” ~ Thomas Fuller
Food is essential for our health. A nutritional diet protects us from many diseases and viruses to say the least. But the real question is are we making the right food choices. Because our food choices have a direct impact not only on our body, but also on our social lives and mental health.
Did you know an average human consumes more than 70,000 meals in their 65-years of life?
Many different factors influence our food choice. These are categorized into biological, economic, and social factors. Social and economic factors are of more importance when compared to biological factors. These two factors also determine the overall health of a nation. Many studies claim that most Americans are consuming more sugars, saturated fats, and sodium than they actual need. One obvious reason is the unhealthy guilty pleasure of the fast food we consume. It’s simple, easy, instant, and delicious. What else could one ask for in this fast-moving life?! But, the effect it has on our body and mind cannot be ignored.
Is organic food better for your health?
Most Americans are consuming more organic foods than ever before, and it is a good thing. Organic products are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic herbicides, chemicals, antibiotics, hormones, and fertilizers. There are several different parameters for growing organic food, yet organic nutrition is better for our overall health. Organic food is often fresh because no preservatives are used, along with being better for the environment, organic farming produces less pollution, conserves water, reduces soil erosion, and uses less energy. Organic food is also free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
