You have Pesticides in your Body, but an Organic Diet can reduce them by 70%

A new study shows that we consume cancer-linked glyphosate in our food. The good news: going organic rapidly reduces these levels. 🏞️ Never before have we sprayed so much of a chemical on our food, on our yards, on our children’s playgrounds. So it’s no surprise that Roundup shows up in our bodies.

What is perhaps surprising is how easy it is to get it out. A group studied pesticide levels in four American families for six days on a non-organic diet and six days on a completely organic diet. Switching to an organic diet decreased levels of Roundup’s toxic main ingredient, glyphosate, by 70% in just six days.

🌱Pesticide companies’ ability to keep profiting from products that poison us is particularly egregious given that we have a solution. Organic works. And not just for our health – research shows that a shift away from pesticide-intensive agriculture leads to significant improvements for biodiversity and other environmental benchmarks while also yielding enough to ensure a well-fed planet.

Words of Gratitude to USAID and NPO Pakistan

We would like to thank USAID and NPO Pakistan for organizing the Made In Gilgit project. This event marked the beginning of our journey to promote Gilgit Baltistan’s products to the urban market.

The objectives of the project are as under:
To provide livelihood opportunities to 35 craft’s persons belonging to District Gilgit in a 05 month period through:

  • 5 days training of craft’s persons on sales, customer relationship management, marketing, and e-marketing at Gilgit. As a result, we saw the importance of eCommerce in Gilgit Baltistan.
  • Development of the “Made in Gilgit” website. Therefore we saw an increase in the sales of traditional products outside the GB region.
  • Young entrepreneur exposure visits to the Chamber of Commerce & Industry Islamabad and markets in Islamabad, hence creating linkage development opportunities with other sellers in cities.

Gilgit Baltistan Chamber of Commerce announced this event on 11 January 2017. Due to a limited number of seats, the competition was stiff. Among the lucky entrepreneurs, GS Hunza Dry Fruits was also selected for the event. Our products were selected to be featured as one of the top products at the expo.

The 3-day exhibition was held at Al-Hamra Art Council Lahore from 3 May 2017 to 5 May 2017.

The response we received from the people of Lahore was thrilling. Customers loved our products and gave us valid comments to improve our products. Walnut Kelawo, Dried Apricot, and Green Tea were among the most loved products. After the exhibition finished we received several orders on the phone and our customers requested an online portal so they easily shop Hunza Dry Fruits. On March 2020 we launched www.gshunzadryfruits.com

6 Reasons you should eat Organic

6 Reasons You Should Eat Organic + The Top Organic Produce You Should Buy

By Sara Lindberg, M.Ed., B.S. on mindbodygreen.com/ and Medical review by Bindiya Gandhi, M.D. on mindbodygreen.com/

The word “organic” has become related to being “better,” especially for foods like strawberries and spinach, but what does that actually mean? Why is eating organic a better choice for the environment and our health? Here, six reasons we must always be eating an organic diet. Plus, how you’ll be able to tell if your food is organic and which organic items should top your list when choosing produce.

  1. Organic food can reduce the number of chemicals in our bodies.

Going organic, a minimum of for a few food items can reduce the number of chemicals within the body, specifically pesticides, and antibiotics. Organic food production is restricted from using synthetic pesticides, per a 2017 review within the journal Environmental Health, which results in low residue levels in foods and lower pesticide exposure for consumers.

“Although certain styles of approved pesticides are often utilized in organic agriculture, they’re often natural substances, whereas conventional agriculture uses harsher man-made pesticides,” says registered dietician, Erika Fox, RDN. Additionally, Fox says organic produce is grown using natural fertilizers compared to traditional, which uses (you guessed it) synthetic fertilizer.

  1. Organic food can cause more nutritious or vitamin-enriched fruits and vegetables.

Could organic fruits and vegetables have the next antioxidant content than conventionally grown food? Well, in keeping with a 2017 study published within the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers found that organic onions did have a couple of 20% higher antioxidant content than non-organic onions.

Our soil contains critical microbial life that typically gets destroyed when crops are sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and so on. Without these synthetic chemicals within the soil, organic crops can extract the healthy minerals and nutrients they have from the bottom, resulting in more vitamin-rich food.

  1. Organic dairy and meat are often healthier than non-organic varieties.

Organic dairy and meat are also healthier for you, in keeping with Fox. “Organic meat, dairy, and eggs are all raised without the utilization of hormones, whereas, conventionally raised animals are typically given hormones to supply faster growth,” says Fox. Additionally, organically raised animals aren’t given antibiotics or GMO-feed.

  1. Organic food may have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

The omega-3 carboxylic acid content in organic meat could be significantly on top of conventional meat. More specifically, research from a 2016 study published within the British Journal of Nutrition, found that omega-3 carboxylic acid levels were 47% higher in organic meat.

Researchers believe the upper levels should do with what the livestock are eating since animals that are raised for organic labeling are required to graze over conventional animals—who tend to eat more grains because they spend longer indoors.

  1. Organic food is GMO-free.

All organic food is GMO-free, which implies that the organisms weren’t genetically engineered or modified in any way (usually so as to form them grow faster or bigger). in keeping with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), organic products are prohibited from having genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

  1. Organic food could be better for the environment.

In addition to being a healthier choice for your body, organic food also can be better for the environment.

“Organic farming reduces pollution, conserves water, reduces wearing away, increases soil fertility, and uses less energy overall,” says Lisa Mastela, MPH, RD, and founding father of Bumpin Blends. Farming without pesticides also can be better for the health of the animals and folks who live near the farms, because it reduces their exposure to those chemicals.

What are the simplest organic foods?

When possible, purchase and consume produce—organic or not —that is in season. for instance, within the winter, enjoy Dried Fruits and Nuts like Dried Cherries, Dried Apple, Dried Mulberries, Dried Figs, Chilgoza and Kelawo. Not only might it taste better, but it’s also more cost-efficient. once you eat produce that’s in-season, the provision can typically meet the demand, leading to lower prices.

Here is a list of the most purchased dried fruits and Nuts of Winter 2019:

  1. Kelawo – Nuts dipped in Honey and Mulberry Juice
  2. Buckwheat
  3. Green Tea(Wild Thyme) – Tumoru
  4. Pinenuts – Chilgoza
  5. Organic Made Dried Apricot
  6. Himalayan Shilajit
  7. Nut Oil (Almond, Walnut and Apricot Nut Oil)
  8. Walnut Kernel

Getting started with organic food doesn’t require an entire overhaul of your diet. Making small, simple changes, like swapping conventional fruits and vegetables from the Dirty Dozen list for his or her organic counterparts, is a technique you’ll be able to enjoy the advantages of eating organic food.

What organic means?

The rules that govern the use of the USDA organic seal — or even the word organic — are essentially the same for all foods. “

Organic comes with a long list of criteria and stringent verification rules farmers and food processors have to meet.”

-Charlotte Vallaeys, senior food, and nutrition policy analyst.

But not every rule applies to every type of food. Ingredients such as nuts and fruit in these Kelawo are required to be grown organically, using sustainable practices. And most importantly without GMOs or synthetic pesticides.

In processed foods, like Kelawo, the processing itself has to comply with organic rules, which ban the use of most synthetic processing aids or artificial ingredients, such as artificial colors.

What it doesn’t mean: Just because a fruit is organic doesn’t mean it’s necessarily more nutritious than conventional fruits and vegetables.

“Organic doesn’t mean that fruit is going to have less sugar, for instance.”

Vallaeys says.
