Children and fetuses are most vulnerable to pesticide exposure due to their less-developed immune systems and because their bodies and brains are still developing. Exposure at an early age can cause developmental delays, behavioral disorders, and motor dysfunction.
Pregnant womenare more vulnerable due to the added stress pesticides put on their already taxed organs. Plus pesticides can be passed from mother to child in the womb, as well as through breast milk. Some exposures can cause delayed effects on the nervous system, even years after the initial exposure.
Most of us have an accumulated build-up of pesticide exposure in our bodies due to numerous years of exposure. This chemical “body burden” as it is medically known could lead to health issues such as headaches, birth defects, and added strain on weakened immune systems.
A simple example of how a little discretion can not only improve your own life , but also make the world a much better place to live in. Choose organic products whenever you can, else ask your local retailer to provide organic alternatives to his chemical-laden products.
Organic food is more labor intensive since the farmers do not use pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or drugs. Acquiring Organic certification and maintaining this status is expensive. Organic feed for animals can cost twice as much.
Organic farms tend to be smaller than conventional farms, which means fixed costs and overhead must be distributed across smaller produce volumes. Also most organic farms are too small to apply for government subsidies.
However at yes2organic.com we strive to bring you the best of authentic and certified organic products directly from the farmer’s associations. Hence you will find many products that do not have ‘ridiculous markups’ . Enjoy better taste and health at affordable daily-buy prices.
