With hypermarkets becoming an agglomeration of poisoning so-called foods, and in the conditions of more and more sensitivities and illness, it’s no wonder people turn towards natural organic foods. Although analyses between conventional and non-conventional foods are relevant, any consumer can use his/her common sense to decide whether the foods he/she buys are good for health. The dangers that lurk in non-organic foods are hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and fertilizers. The non-organic livestock is raised in very harsh conditions, while the fruit and vegetables are synthetically boosted to look great and take the consumer’s eye. By contrast, natural organic foods are cultivated or grown according to the rules of Mother Nature, with very little human intervention.

Natural organic foods may also have traces of pesticide residues, but these are usually drifted from nearby farms that use chemicals for crop production. Furthermore, with natural organic foods there are a lot more nutrients and fewer threats for the health. If we take the example of organic eggs, analyses indicate that besides the lack of hormones and antibiotics, there is less saturated fat, less cholesterol, more Vitamin A, twice more Omega-3 acids, huge amounts of beta-carotene and seven times more Vitamin E than in non-organic eggs. The difference is therefore huge, not to mention that the quality of the protein is significant too.

The word is spreading about the advantages of natural organic foods, and since not all geographic areas benefit from the direct access to organic retailers, it is good to know that many of the products can be now ordered online from the closest source. If you want to buy natural organic foods, it is more likely to find them at the market than in hypermarkets. Moreover, in case you travel to the country side, the chances to find producers of natural organic foods is a lot higher. Make a bit of research and see where you find them and whether you can make some supplies.

The only disadvantage of natural organic foods is their price, because they are between 10% and 40% more expensive than non-organic foods. When it comes to vegetables and fruits, the products are very easy to recognize by their look: there will be no huge perfect apples or strawberries, but various fruit sizes, some flawed, others intact. The same thing stays valid for meat, but you will only be able to tell which is which by shopping from the special organic sectors in markets or supermarkets.
