The Ecologist, the organic food market in Britain is up again for the sixth straight year and analysts expect it to exceed a record £2.2 billion in sales by the end of 2017, according to the Soil Association. Supermarket sales of organic foods grew some four percent from January to July, the organization said. That compares to growth in sales of non-organic foods of just 1.4 percent over the same period, Nielsen analysts said. “We’ve had six years of consecutive growth in organic products,” Finn Cottle, trade consultant to the Soil Association Certification, said.
Why is Organic Food Important Anyway?
When you eat conventional foods, your dietary intake of pesticides is high.
As the video shows, when a typical family that ate only conventional foods was placed on a 100% organic diet for a period of time, there was very little to no pesticide residues found in their urine samples. Therefore, it is important for us to eat organic to eliminate pesticides from our daily dietary intake of nutrients.
You are what you eat
More and more people in the UK and worldwide are recognising the value of eating healthier food choices. People are beginning to understand that spending a few pennies more for high quality food today, is an investment in your overall health and wellness in the future.
