Going Organic to Reduce Our Bodies Pesticide Levels

Published by at 12:23 pm under Organic

Does Going Organic Really Reduce Our Bodies Pesticide Levels?  
Check out the amazing results that a family from Sweden experienced after switching to a 100% organic diet for just two full weeks.  This study may have you think twice before loading up your next shopping cart. 

Most of the produce we consume today is treated with pesticides, unless it is grown organically. Last week we talked about pesticides in our food supply, the dangers of ingesting them and the best ways to minimize our exposure to pesticides in our food and the environment. Additionally, we provided a list of the “Dirty Dozen” and the “Clean 15” to help you steer clear of the fruits and vegetables that hold the most pesticide residue vs. the ones shown to hold the least amount.

But have you ever wondered what levels of pesticides actually show up in our systems from eating conventionally farmed produce, meat and dairy? An experiment was done with a family in Sweden that is eye opening, to say the least! Prior to the experiment, this family did not follow an organic diet. As part of the experiment, they were instructed to rid their kitchen of all processed and non-organic foods and replace them with purely organic groceries which they ate for a full two weeks. Urine samples were taken from each family member before and after the experiment. The results are amazing.

Take a look at this quick video to learn more about what happens should you go completely organic and what positive effects it would have on your body in regards to pesticide levels.2

 

This video is a great reminder of how important it is to follow an organic diet whenever possible. Keeping your gut healthy by not polluting it with unwanted chemicals that unfortunately enter our system through pesticide treated foods, GMOs, artificial additives and sweeteners – even our drinking water – is imperative. Because we can’t eat a perfect diet all the time, it is essential to support your gut health with Body Biotics™ Bio-Identical SBO Probiotics Consortia™ every day.  

Healthiest wishes,
