Is Organic food just a Fad or a buzzword?
This family doesn’t eat organic food because it costs more than conventional food and it just isn’t convenient.
For the next two weeks this family decided to eat only organic and measure the effect.
Before they begin, the family takes urine samples and discover they have a number of insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators inside their bodies. The following chemicals were found:
- Chloremequat chloride
This family was not too happy when they discovered they’ve not only been eating pesticides, but that these chemicals have taken up residence inside their bodies. So, they clear the cupboards and switch to organic for this fascinating 2-week experiment.
At the end of the two weeks, they tested their urine again and discovered that nearly all traces of the pesticides had completely vanished. The study was conducted by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL, and the full report is available here: https://www.coop.se/organiceffect. Watch the video below and share the news!
