Nutrition can have profound effects on immune functions, resistance to infection, and autoimmunity. Nutrients enhance or depress immune functions depending on the specific nutrients and levels of intake. Get Downsized believes in eating only the most nutritious foods, and when possible, adhering to a mostly organic diet.

Eating organic protects your health. More than 400 different pesticides are used in non-organic farming (also known as conventional farming). Pesticides are poisons designed to kill living organisms; their residues are present in the foods we eat.

In addition to being devoid of pesticides, organic foods contain more antioxidants because they are grown naturally. Fruits and veggies grown organically show significantly higher levels of cancer-fighting antioxidants than conventionally grown foods.

Also, organic foods are not genetically-modified. The only way to make certain you are not eating Genetically-modified foods in North America is to eat organic. Organic foods generally taste better, retaining the natural flavors they were meant to have.

Eating organic foods reduces potential health risks. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of all herbicides, 90% of all fungicides, and 30% of all insecticides as potentially cancer-causing. Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases.
Organic foods meet high standards.
Processed organic foods contain fewer additives. Organic food which is processed doesn't contain as many food additives as multiple food additives. Animals raised to organic standards have fewer antibiotics. Routine uses of antibiotics are prohibited in organically-raised meat products.
