I was there recently and I am glad I read something about “green misconceptions” in the Tufts University Health and Nutrition letter, before I visited the market.
A new survey by the Shelton group asked people which labels are the most trustworthy when they buy green foods: “100% natural” or “100% organic”
Of 1,006 people surveyed 31% felt 100% natural is the more trustworthy label—as opposed to 14% who choose 100% organic.
What would you answer?
It all boils down to one simple factor: regulation
To have the term natural one does not need any certification by government standards. But to claim that one’s product is 100% organic one must meet government standards to be certified as such.
Food for thought as you endeavor to fuel your body in a way that you will stay healthy. It’s hard to life a life by example if you are always sick because of fueling your body with junk.
