Non-organic food has herbicides, fungicides and pesticides, which are known to be toxic. Yes, they're only in small amounts, but these toxic substances when taken long-term, through frequent consumption, add up to something significant, especially if junk food is chosen regularly in the diet.
Organic food has better nutrition value because the toxins in the above are not present to denature the food's vitamins and enzymes (lose their molecular shape). Also, organic food is GMO free...
2. Eat a high percentage of raw food
On the subject of vitamins and enzymes raw food has a higher nutrition value than cooked food. For example, some food can have very little nutrition value because it contains many denatured vitamins and enzymes caused by the extreme temperatures (heating), unable to serve the body's metabolic requirements. The same effect occurs when deep freezing food.
It's not unusual for health conscious people to have a salad a day and have an overall diet of around 80% raw food.
3. Drink plenty of clean water
If someone put me on the spot and asked what I would say is the single most important contribution to health, I'd respond by recommending drinking more than an adequate supply of good clean water, because it's probably the most underrated factor that contributes to health. No wonder health conscious people are often seen drinking water!
4. Exercise regularly
Besides improving hormonal control such as blood sugar regulation, then there's better cardiovascular function, body mobility, muscle contraction, nervous function and other bodily functions, exercise also helps with alertness and cognitive ability thus increasing intelligence...
The recommendation is around 20-30 minutes exercise a day. The level of exercise depends on the individual and what is appropriate for them in terms of age and fitness.... Where appropriate, the more strenuous the exercise, the better. For example, frequent strenuous exercise gets you puffing and panting which in effect improves cardiovascular function.
5. Maintain a positive outlook
Many health conscious people are frequently seen up-happy. They frequently laugh, have their hopes and are optimistic! Usually, they find themselves having plenty to do in life that interests them. They appreciate the beauty in things... It's also worth a mention that meditation helps maintain good health.
6. Avoid toxicity
With the state of the world today it is increasingly difficult to avoid so many different environmental toxins such as air radiation, other pollution and low electromagnetic frequencies from applications such as the computer, Wi-Fi, mobile and phones... etc but health conscious people avoid chemicals from personal care and beauty products like toiletries, shampoo, hair sprays, creams and lotions... by choosing the natural non-toxic forms of these products.
As already mentioned toxicity is also avoided by choosing the organic option while avoiding junk food.
