Non-organic ingredients expose your body to high levels of pesticides, which can cause neurological problems, cancer, infertility, nausea, allergies, asthma, skin problems, ADHD, birth defects and more!
Pesticides also have environmental impacts on water, soil, and vegetation. They are responsible for killing off beneficial micro-organisms, animals, and non-target plants, which disrupts ecosystems.
The health of our soil is particularly important in regards to climate change and our health. In the soil, live billions of micro-organisms that supply the roots of plants with nutrients, in exchange for carbon.
Chemical agriculture is degrading our soil's health by harming the biotic communities that live in it, which equates to less carbon sequestration and less nutrient rich crops.
With this in mind, it is critical to support ethical, organic farming whenever possible.
