Is Organic Baby Food Really Any Better For Your Baby?
You people know that there I know what you’re thinking – “I want to feed the healthiest food to my baby & I’ve heard Organic Baby Food is good, but – I’ve also heard it’s not any better & is just marketing hype! What is the truth?”
Well Read on…. here I will list the features & benefits of Organic Baby Food and let you decide for yourself.
Minimize Risk of Exposure to Toxins
Toxins come in many shapes and forms, some you simply can’t protect your baby from unless you were to live under a rock! However you can greatly reduce the risks to your baby by feeding them organic foods.
The lack of chemicals in organic foods reduces the toxin intake of your baby dramatically. The common toxins in non organic fruits & vegetables are pesticides or insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, not to mention the chemical preservatives & other sweeteners, thickeners & stabilizer additives that are in all jarred, canned or packaged foods.
Many sprays used on farms & chemicals added to foods were once thought to be safe but have since been proven to be harmful. Many have been proven to cause ADHD, Diabetes, Autism, even Cancer, birth defects, nerve damage and genetic mutations!
The EPA & FDA estimate that as much as 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides and 30% of insecticides/pesticides are carcinogenic, meaning they can cause cancer.
Combat Many “Accepted” Childhood Illnesses & Allergies
Childhood conditions and allergies are getting to be so prevalent that it’s almost inevitable! Well it doesn’t have to be! Diagnosing a child with ADHD was once a rare occurrence and Autism was not a household word.
It is no coincidence that the rise in popularity of fast food and salty or sugary packaged foods, has also seen the rise in diagnoses of childhood illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and many other more sinister conditions such as allergies, autism and ADHD.
And while there are plenty of people who have legitimate food-related allergies, many of the allergies that are attributed to foods can actually be traced back to the chemical components added to preserve or sweeten foods, not the actual food!
While there are plenty of causes for these illnesses and allergies, there are too many cases that could be avoided and can be maintained with proper nutrition and avoidance of certain additives & toxins. Organic, unprocessed baby foods are a large step toward preventing these problems from beginning in your child.
