How to Be Well has opened my eyes to how it’s non-negotiable to eat mostly organic food.
Not only is eating meat not-so-great for our waistlines it’s obviously not good at all for the earth. CAFOs–that is slaughterhouses–wreck the environment.
I haven’t eaten meat in over a decade. Today I’m not keen to eat chicken and turkey either unless I buy or order the organic version.
According to Frank Lipman, MD the author of How to Be Well chicken is given a chemical bath.
Chemical bath? Those words alone alarm me.
I say: opt for buying and eating organic chicken and turkey. Just Say No to Beef of any kind.
In the coming blog entries I want to thrown down another Fitness Challenge. I’ll record my own progress to motivate readers to embark on your own goal-setting routine.
Meet me in the next blog entry as I start out with Step 1: Psych.
Roundup–the Monsanto pesticide–was proven to cause cancer in a legal trial.
Farming communities have high rates of cancer. Pesticides cause all sorts of health issues.
Eating produce that’s locally grown is better if you’re able to do this.
The cost of shopping at a Greenmarket offsets the catastrophic cost of becoming ill from disease. You either pay more for healthful food or you pay more for medical costs.
After skimming pages in How to Be Well I’m committed to changing my behavior in terms of consuming food.
My goal is to persuade blog readers to buy mostly organic food.
As I see it, to eat healthfully 80 percent of the time is a great goal. I’ve talked about this 80 percent rule before in the blog.
Monsanto and the other biotech firms will stop at nothing to keep advertising GMO crops as safe and nutritious. Only GMO food isn’t better for you than organic food.
Luckily, I can buy organic food and shop at Greenmarkets where I live in New York City.
In the coming blog entry I’ll talk more about the benefits of eating mostly organic food.
