Here’s the real reason you should eat organic and it may save your or your families life... Fruit and veg contain a phytonutrient called Salvestrols which fight against fungi and naturally stop them from going off. Diseased cells in the human body have a unique enzyme protein called CYP1B1, typically found in cancer. Salvestrols will have a deadly on this enzyme protein whilst leaving the healthy cells fine. Unfortunately due to fungicides that are sprayed onto normal crops, the majority of Salvestrols (which are found on the skin of fruit and veg) are destroyed, also taking with them that fungi/disease fighting defence with them. Organic fruit and veg has many more Salvestrols, giving you that extra disease fighting ability. Please do your own research if you wish to know more: https://m.health24.com/Natural/Natural-living/Can-salvestrols-fight-disease-20130524

Biosolids. That reason should be enough for anyone. Thousands of full condoms swimming arround with feces and period blood and they don't filter the semen because it's part of what makes the plants grow. Biosolids caused cattle to die from eating grass treated with it and it soaks into the food and traces are found on the surface of food which is worse than the chef at the restaurant you eat at rubbing his ejaculate and feces in your burger. They downplay and ignore biosolids everywhere like GMOs is the problem. That should tell you you trust them. Biosolids is so sick and abundant in food it should be headlining news everywhere, but it's intentionally overlooked. Interesting that feces eating is a huge part of satanism now they want everyone doing it! Smh

“Free range” only req 5 mins outdoors - and that’s another reason why the whole animal agriculture is a sham to the point of being a crime - animals are sentient beings and shouldn’t be murdered, enslaved, raped or eaten, not to mention the health risks eating corpse pieces and animal periods (eggs), secretions (dairy milk with puss and blood in it, something else they don’t tell you!) and products derived from those (cheese). Don’t believe it? Then why is the US, UK, Germany, ... so unhealthy? Exactly. And no, it’s not the refined (cane) sugar or dtarch, the culprit is saturated far coming from all those animal products, refined sugars only make half of the carbs compared to the same amount of animal fats...

Before I watch the video I was like duh,of course organic food isn't worst for you than junk food.now I see the point you're bringing out as far as mislabeling and so forth
I think you should try a home-grown tomato against one you get at a restaurant. I ate one yesterday on a hot dog. It tasted like packaging peanuts. It was hard, dry, pale and yucky. Home grown have real flavor and are dark red. They're juicy with a lot of depth to their taste. If dogs are so stupid, why won't even my "starving labs" refuse store bought tomatoes?? They LOVE home grown. And they grow in Northern climates well. How do you know the differences are "clinically insignificant?" You were able to measure them, were you not? I'm guessing it doesn't take much modification of the body to screw you up badly. Here's an example: take a piano file generated on a computer. Have a real person play on a real piano. It's obvious immediately which is the person. The computer generated file, frankly, sucks. If you're not eating junk at all, you'll eat probably 75% less food overall. Measure it for yourself.

what about organic proteins
Stephanie Harris (8 months ago)
I’m starting to think a lot of people have forgotten what organic really means: “relating to or denoting compounds containing carbon (other than simple binary compounds and salts) and chiefly or ultimately of BIOLOGICAL ORIGIN.” So when I saw the title, I immediately thought, “Isn’t that all food?!?” For real though people, if you’re that concerned about pesticides & other chemicals, start a garden if you can. Raise chickens in your backyard. Do what you can, because even though a company says it’s “organic” *cough pesticide/herbicide free cough*, it doesn’t meant it’s true. Also, you know what else is organic? Hemlock. You’re welcome.

Hi everyone, all the food out there is contaminated because it has heavy metal toxins, etc. Also our water as well. Get a good filter, start your own garden or join a community garden, or go to your local farmers market. there's also a bunch of nano tech in the food as well so if I were you I'd listen to this now, do yourself a big favor to get them out of your body, and also detox as well.

Men should stick to organic 100% because gmo’s lower testosterone, so does soy(protein,soybean oil etc) so buy none soy condiments and dressings. Drop gmo’s , soy and get outside and use muscle in sport/exercise or exploration and your testosterone will improve. The grass fed meats is bullshit because there’s no regulation that the grass has to be any certain way. But at least grass fed means the cow wasn’t pumped full of soy and grain.
David Adcock (10 months ago)
Farmers produce record crops almost every year because they take great pride in taking care of their soils if they did not they would not be setting new yield records almost every year. Organic growers use many harmful pesticides much more harmful than Glyphosate. So you can not answer a single simple question that I have asked? Like I said your knowledge on this subject is ZERO. "The World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidence has come to the same conclusion: consuming foods containing ingredients derived from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants modified by conventional plant improvement techniques." –American Association for the Advancement of Science Here is another country using the safest of all herbicides Glyphosate. Glyphosate is used all over the world because of its pure safety. Is the reason you want farmers to go back to using more and more harmful pesticides because you own a lot of stock in pesticide companies? That has to be it you benefit financially when farmers use more and more harmful pesticides. Shame on you John Doe. https://geneticliteracyproject.org/2017/05/01/canadas-health-regulator-reaffirms-glyphosate-herbicide-neither-genotoxic-carcinogenic/

David Adcock You site news that is usually biased and govt as both aren’t known to be crooked. The news is ok but telling me about nutrition from usual salesmen and market driven areas is suspect. My first link was straight from EPA, EPA supposedly makes sure (👎) the Environment is safe not what people are going to consume. Farmers used to not use anything but hard work to grow stuff. And I’m tired of hearing from gmo guys soil isn’t depleted, yes it I’ve have family in WI and CA (against my better judgement) and they all say the soil getting worse year after year plus there’s articles, science, and the supposed EPA to protect it from getting worse. https://www.nytimes.com/1987/08/23/us/farming-without-chemicals-age-old-technologies-becoming-state-of-art.html, how actually farming. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss/ There’s still people who farm old school. https://www.ecowatch.com/certified-naturally-grown-a-new-way-to-identify-pesticide-free-non-gmo-1882022915.html https://responsibletechnology.org/gmo-education/health-risks/ As for your questions, honestly I haven’t read any of you long posts after your insults.

I am sorry but your link is false Organic growers use many many harmful pesticides. Would you like to see their approved list'? Organic farming is just another old farming method that causes terrible soil erosion. Remember how the Mississippi Delta was created? Are you telling me you could not answer a single simple question that I have asked. Are you really this ignorant on this subject? I will provide you with more links of all countries now using glyphosate because of its pure safety. Why do you want farmers to go back to using more and more harmful pesticides when the ones we use with gmo technology crops are even safer than many of the pesticides organic growers use? You really really need to get an education on this subject and stop with your lies and misinformation that you spread.

This video is misleading. You are really cherrypicking here, and failing to mention the other side of the story. Many chemicals used in foods are known to have negative long term affects and some are quite dangerous. And no shit organic crop yields are lower, although that doesn't have anything to do with how healthy they are for you. I would say That synthetic chemicals are putting more strain on the environment than the increased space you need to grow them. And of course organic food isn't going to have more nutrients in it, the whole point is that eating organic food isn't going to slowly poison you.

Popeye Gordon (11 months ago)
Nathan still posts unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. What long term effects? Be specific, name the ingredients and the effects as documented by unbiased qualified doctors or peer reviewed studies and NOT Youtube quacks. List most of those "lot of chemicals" you mentioned or be called out as a malicious liar with hostile intent. And no, mercury or lead ingredients used 100 years ago does not count. Fear mongering really sucks. It damages the incomes of farmers, loses American jobs and causes really bad karma as seen by a million very nasty hateful comments here on Youtube under anti-science quack and fake news videos. Stop the lies based on an arbitrary predicted but completely non-existent theoretical situation.
Nathan Temple (11 months ago)
Considering that gmo food has only been marketed for around 25 years, I would say there isn't much long term research on the affects of it either. Also a lot of chemicals that have been used to produce food in the past have been found to cause long term affects, some of which we are only now finding out. Obviously not all chemicals are bad, and likewise not all organic food is good, but there's also a lot that hasn't been discovered yet.

Ok Im Going to cut through the b.s. for you. Contrary to what you have been told. Most meats, vegetables and fruits are organic. They just are not marketed as such. The story of hormone injected meats is in reality very slim. Here is how more then 99% of meat goes from birth to table. Born, taken to auction and sold. Raised from buyer until ready for market. Goes to auction and meat packers buy. Goes to meat packers " farm" or plants same thing. There up to a couple days Butchered at plant halved or quarter. At this point it goes a couple different ways 1) sent to store and cut up into different cuts, such as chops, steaks, hamburger and so on. 1) you buy in store packaging, take home and cook. 2) stays at plant and is processed, which means cut up, into cuts. Labeled as company xyz. One plant can have multible companies it packages for. 2) sent to store. You buy take home and cook. Never was any hormone used Very rarely a BIG farm / ranch will use hormone to cheat the system. You have a higher chance of a " organic farmers " selling a sick animal then this. Now for fruit and vegetables. No matter who grows ferterlizer is used as is pesticide and insecticides. To not do this you have small crops sometime no crop yields. And natural fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides are CHEAPER then synthetic. BTW FYI salt water is used as an insecticide. This is what the crop duster by me uses. Food is grown, taken to coop. Coop sells Some go strait to store some goes to packing plants Again most packing plants package for multible companies. You could have libbys packed on Monday, Buy Rite, Tuesday, DELL Wednesday, and so on. So even your generics are packed at same place sometime even same time as name brands. Packing plant to store warehouse Werehouse to store Store to table. The only difference here is Big farms don't use coop, it goes strait to thier packers. And those packers also buy from coops. The only time synthetic is cheaper is when bought in very large quantities. Look for brand names that own litterly counties of farmland. And even then synthetic may not be used. Now let's talk milk. Ok milk is a different story. If you buy milk with vitamin D, that is an additive. Milk does not naturally have vit d. BTW 10 minutes of sun gives you all the vitamin D a person needs. So if you see organic milk with vitamin D, it isnt organic. They just lied to you. If you really want the safest food best choose is raise it yourself. Next is pay someone to raise it for you. ( look up FFA chapters, help a student out If need be) Next choose is know the farmer and buy direct from them. (Again FFA chapter are an easy way to find student farmers)

Today I was like,"hey friend. Want me to ruin something?" She was like sure, ok. Then I told her about organic foods and how *some of them can* be harmful to health. I said the some GMO foods were better for you than organic. Then, she was like, "GMO is used on cows to make more milk." and in my mind I was thinking, "Did she really just say GMO was a substance?"

Yum, inorganic food. It's rich in iron and other minerals.
