Organic food reduces toxicity in our body

People go back and forth discussing why organically grown food is good for us and why we should consume it. The question which remains unanswered is, “how does organic food reduce toxicity in the human body?”.

A study was conducted where adults were asked to consume only organic food for one whole week. After the tests were done, the results showed that the level of toxic waste in the body had dropped by 89% . Now that is a pretty significant and big number. This toxicity is an Organophosphate pesticide or just OP Pesticide. It can lead to problems in growth, fertility and development of the body. It can cause autism (a mental condition where forming relationships becomes difficult) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a condition which affects concentration power and focus) in the offsprings.

Sounds like a good reason to eat organic food, eh?

Would you like some organic milk with that coffee?

Yes, there is something called organic milk as well now. So what is the difference between conventional and organic milk? Well, the cattle is fed organic fodder and hay, so they give organic milk. It decreases the level of cholesterol. Chances are that you will live a longer life without any heart diseases. Sounds sweet to me! Also the taste. It tastes better than the conventional milk.

However, researchers are still trying to find out the amount of Iodine content in both types of milk. This depends on how much Iodine the cattle is getting from the feed it gets. Nobody is still sure which kind is the best.

However, if the cow is healthy and getting a good diet, naturally she is bound to give good quality milk.

Germs are not always at fault for our illness

Most of us blame the germs when we fall sick. That may not be always the case. Sure, maintaining a proper hygiene is important, but the state of our mind also plays a major role in our lifestyle. For instance, we all have a friend who is “on a diet”. But the moment they go for a cheat meal, we have to listen to their guilt and rants. Turns out, if you feel guilty because you were trapped by a slice of chocolate cake, you are more likely to gain weight. But if you cherish that delicious, soft and moist slice with no regrets, you are more likely to be happy (this doesn’t mean you can devour one everyday). Similarly, people who worry too much about hygiene, are more likely to fall ill. The focus has to be on boosting your immunity and  maintaining a good diet, not on the germs which are everywhere and can’t even be seen.

Quinoa can overcome the problem of droughts!

Droughts in the central and western part of India have been an unresolved issue for many years. The monsoon season has not blessed these regions with adequate rainfall leading to scarcity of water for agricultural and domestic purposes. The funds allocated to develop mitigation strategies have not been used efficiently. The gap between the problem and the solution is still at large. However, there still is a ray of hope. But what is this “ray of hope” which can benefit the farmers? Can you think of a crop which requires minimum water to grow? I am sure most of us would probably come up with wheat. But this crop needs the right temperature and about 12-15 inches of rain. How about Quinoa? This cash crop can adjust with any kind of soil, temperature and has minimum water needs. Organic Wellness is providing the seeds of this crop to end the suffering of the farmers community. They are an important part of the OW family and will get help no matter how adverse the situation is.

We have been covered by The Times of India which is one of the most prestigious dailies of the country. For your convenience, the article has been reproduced in this blog post.

Don’t be Monica because there are no “safe solvents”

The general perception that being obsessively clean (which means being like Monica from the TV Series Friends) is a good thing has to change. Cleaning solvents put your health at risk. Not just by direct contact with the skin. It’s a chain you see. Let’s say one day you decide to clean your balcony with lavender fragranced soap/cleanser. Now that gets mixed with the water which is then absorbed by the soil. That very soil of the kitchen garden which grows your “fresh fruits and vegetables”. Eventually, you end up consuming some savoury dish made out of those ingredients. So in the end who is at loss? Too obvious to answer, but it is the person who consumes that dish.

So what can be the solution?

Here’s a thought, instead of cleaning every day with Sodium Hydroxide or Potassium Hydroxide, why not use a plain dry mop? Or with water (if the place is that messy). Or maybe just reduce the usage of solvents to once a week, once in two weeks, whatever suits best.

I am sure all the people who hate cleaning must be feeling pretty good now.

Get drenched in a rainbow of organic colours! 

It is that time of the year again in India, when people celebrate colours! Here’s a thought, let’s do it a little differently this year. Switch to organic colours, instead of playing with colours which cause skin problems like rashes, itchiness, et cetera. Synthetic colours have chemicals which put our health at risk. Plus, it is easier to scrub off after a long day of applying red, yellow and green on each other (no need to roam around “coloured up” for a week). Therefore, less water is used. On holi, we waste so much water, first for playing and then for bathing. So many districts are hit by drought currently. It is nice to get drenched in a rainbow of colours but also to take precautions at the same time.

Wishing you all a very happy and safe Holi!

What is the origin of Organic Farming?

Organic farming has no origin. It was a conventional approach before humans delved into chemistry and found fertilisers. Natural ways were the way to go before the Second World War. After a lot of research, farmers started using chemicals on their farm lands. That was when the Organic Movement rose in Europe. Both the farmers and the consumers revolted against the industrialisation of agriculture. Consumers became more conscious about their health and well being, and preferred organically grown produce. They had realised the harmful effects of these chemicals. This conscious started spreading to different parts of the world which led to an increase in the demand of organically produced fruits and vegetables. As Economics dictates, farmers switched to organic farming. That is why we see such fancy packaging of organic products with a USDA Organic logo in most of the retail stores.
