Why eating natural food is crucial: Chemistry around us

Many people on hearing the phrase “natural products” would smile condescendingly like “any food has the same chemistry”. Of course, agricultural products contain the same chemical elements as the natural food do. The entire Universe contains the same elements though. And the composition is not as important thing to keep in mind as it is the correlation among the elements. Today we will tell you about how vegetables grown on different fields differ between each other, and why it is crucial to care about their naturalness.

Nobody can tell, what exactly the vegetables consist of, and in what proportions. However, the products grown on wide fields of the agricultural corporations and on farms differ a lot. This difference influence significantly on the human health.

As an example, let us pick a history of two ordinary Japanese families, Naka and Hirukawa. They always have been buying products in supermarkets, but suddenly they decided to eat only organic food during 10 days. Both of these families, besides parents, had two children each one, so the experiment was for the good of their health. After 10 days, the level of pesticides and other toxins in the urine decreased incredibly. It turned out that the intoxication of the children were higher than that of their parents, as they are more sensitive to toxins. Less the age, more sensitive they are. The families proved that the consumption of natural products makes a positive impact of the health. But what is the difference between the natural products and those bought in a supermarket?
The first difference between them lies in the input data – the seeds. They may be selected by the breeders, or genetically modified in a lab. GM seeds are several times more expensive, but yield a plentiful harvest, though, while depleting the soil. These seeds are bought once in a season, since the GM harvest is yielded only once and leaves no offspring. Using these seeds pays off only in a large scale and requires additional fertilization. This is the second aspect in which the farmer products differ from those industrially grown.

Growing vegetables is not one-minute thing (if they are not the magical beans). They need several months to accumulate the elements from the environment: the air, the water and the soil. The result – a fruit – depends on the environment conditions. Besides weather, it includes also the irrigation, chemical composition of the fertilizers, douching and quality of the soil.

No secret that the agricultural producers use pesticides, herbicides and mineral fertilizers. It is much easier than using the expensive organic fertilizers and collecting parasites by hand. But using chemicals brings a real threat – the overdose. This can actually lead to a deterioration in the quality of the crop, the accumulation of hazardous substances and even the death of plants. It is known that when nitric fertilizers are overdosed, nitrates and nitrites accumulate in the vegetables making their consumption dangerous.

The vegetables grown with organic fertilizers normally contain much larger set of macro and microelements than those grown with any complex mineral fertilizers and physiologically active substances. Even if the farmer products cost a little more than the supermarket vegetables – you will not have to buy medicaments.

The main thing that influence the product quality is the relation between the producer and the customer. A farmer would never want to spoil his reputation by selling definitely poor quality products to the customer that is often known personally. A large scale producer is not concerned at all about the end customer, as his clients are mostly faceless supermarket chains.

Of course, walking to a nearby supermarket is much easier than going to a farm, but in 1000Ecofarms you can agree upon the delivery just by contacting a farmer. 1000Ecofarms is a self-consistent and independent food market.

Cherish your health and watch for the quality of the products you have on your table – it is the best way to a happy, healthy and delicious life!
