This Family Stopped Eating Food Grown Using Pesticides For 2 Weeks. The Effect Is Astounding
Most people would say that eating organic food is healthier, but how much healthier, exactly? This challenge, part of a study by Coop, a Swedish supermarket chain, and the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL, set out to answer that question. It was part of a campaign in Europe to emphasize the importance of eating organic meals and the dangers of ingesting chemicals found in many processed foods. The supermarket chain behind the study is working towards the end goal of having all supermarkets sell exclusively organic foods. While this goal might seem unrealistic or, at least, a long way off, Coop believes it is possible in the near future if the public is made aware and fully understands the problems with modern food production.
