The food which we eat should be understood in its biochemical components. From these components we achieve our ability to defend our health, and therefore, to live as long as possible without disease, in good psycho-physical condition. In this sense, chronic-degenerative diseases such as arthrosis, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases, tumours, heart diseases, diabetes, and neurological deficits (Alzheimer’s, Parkinsonisms, Multiple Sclerosis, etc…) would be controlled more effectively.
Organic food is safer, as organic farming prohibits routine pesticide and herbicide use, so harmful
chemical residues are rarely found.
Organic production also bans the use of artificial food additives such as hydrogenated fats, phosphoric acid, aspartame and monosodium glutamate, which have been linked to health problems as diverse as heart disease, osteoporosis, migraines and hyperactivity.
