Eating Organic Foods
The point remains that we simply don’t know yet what the long-term effects of all the additives and unnatural chemicals is food. This makes many people choose to do what they can now, rather than wait – one of these choices is to eat organically to try to limit their chemical exposure.
What to Look for When Buying Organic
According to the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA) it is important to look for the term ‘certified organic’ on your items, as this can only be used by those who are actually producing what you are really looking for.
But it’s more than avoiding the pesticides; organic foods are typically made without synthetic colourings, preservatives, additives or genetically modified ingredients, so there is a bigger picture here to understand especially when it comes to allergy sufferers.
Eating an organic diet is only half the picture.
Organic foods can still cause inflammatory conditions within the gut unless you have identified which foods evoke an IgG pro-inflammatory response.
