2. Nutrient-Dense Nutrition
Organic foods are far better for our health than commercially grown produce and factory-farmed animals. For example, comparing the nutritional value of a commercially cultivated hen egg, to an organic, free-range egg yields surprising results.
For starters, when you crack open the egg, you’ll notice a big difference in the color of the yolk. Farmers fed commercial hens a diet of processed grain meal loaded with hormones and antibiotics. These dangerous chemicals are not only bad for your health, but they alter the structure of the yolk and the nutrition it contains.
Free-range eggs have a dark-orange color to the yolk. The hens can roam around their pens – instead of spending their lives crammed together in terrible living conditions. Free-range birds eat a natural diet that’s free of hormones and antibiotics. The result is an egg that’s richer in vitamins.
The same applies to vegetables and fruit grown on organic farms. The natural biomass fertilizer produces food that’s richer in vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients.
