Listening to a few people talk about eating healthy brought this point to mind. Some people treat the “organic” lifestyle as a fad – as though it were just another scheme to lose weight or lower your cholesterol level.
That happens because we adopt labels without considering their origin. To these people, “organic” might as well be “low fat” or “no carbs”. It’s just a ploy to get people to spend more money on their health.
Unprocessed, organic, real foods aren’t trends or fads like Weight Watchers. They’re foods in their natural habitats, unaltered by any chemicals or processes that would alter their molecular structure and which could infect a person during consumption. The most common toxic intruders are pesticides or genetically modified plants (GMOs).
Pesticide – a chemical preparation for destroying plant, fungal, or animal pests.
At some point, either the 1700s or the 1800s, pesticides such as arsenic became widespread in order to fight off pests and rodents. To preserve crops so the farmers wouldn’t lose money or starve. Later on came the scientific discoveries that made genetic modification possible.
Before pesticides, fruit was just fruit. Vegetables were just vegetables. Meat was meat. Salt was the preservative. Additional flavors were herbs and other spices found in plants.
In other words, food was ALWAYS organic because there was no alternative.
It’s not a fad. It’s not a gimmick. Put simply, man and woman ate whatever God placed on the earth.
You don’t add sugar into your gas tank and expect it to run just like it was on pure gasoline. Your body is a natural complex organism, made for natural food. Eat food without unintended additives and your organs can process the food just fine, without backing up or clogging or congestion.
It’s a simple concept, when you step outside your 21st century mindset.
