People complain to me all the time about how healthy, organic food is too expensive. Yes, it is if you only shop at Whole Foods and avoid everything that’s on sale, but if you put a little effort into it like Beege and I do, it’s only about 20% more expensive than eating the unhealthy, conventional, pesticide-laden, fertilizer-covered, GMO garbage at the “cheap” grocery stores.
So what will that 20% savings get you? Well, maybe an extra set of pants each month in the short term, but what’s the cost of cancer, diabetes, or heart disease in the long run? According to one article (and there are MANY more), the median out of pocket expense is over $700 per month for cancer treatment – and that’s for people with “good” health insurance coverage!
Not to mention the time eaten up by having a major disease, all the lost work and income, emotional costs, stress on yourself and those around you, etc. What’s all that worth to you? Probably a lot more than just the $700/month previously mentioned. And that’s if you are lucky enough to survive…
Most major diseases can be avoided by eating healthy, real, organic food – especially low sugar and starch foods because cancer can only live and grow if it has glucose to fuel it. Type two diabetes and even Alzheimer’s (now referred to as type 3 diabetes, or diabetes of the brain) can be avoided and even reversed in most cases with healthy, low sugar and low starch eating. Heart disease, high cholesterol (especially high VLDLs and triglycerides – the important numbers), high blood pressure and more, can be cured with organic, low sugar and low starch foods.
Yes, it’s more expensive, but take your pick:
- Pay 20% more now and have a long, healthy, happy life, OR
- Risk paying LOTS more than that later, with the misery of having a major disease, all of its costs, drugs, and an early death.
I choose health, happiness and a long, full life, so I eat the right foods, from organic sources, so I gladly pay that 20% premium now. Plus, I get that investment back immediately with better fitness, more energy, amazing health, mental clarity, vitality and more – right now! And by the way, it’s way more delicious too!
