What you choose to eat and drink directly impacts both your health and the health of the environment. Deciding which foods to buy was simpler back in the day when most food came from farms. But now, thanks to genetically modified foods, preservatives and pesticides, fast-paced lifestyles, and factory-made foods, chemical additives have become a significant part of our diet.

It’s important to understand that all food, natural and processed, organically grown and artificially fertilized, is full of chemicals. Like everything else – our bodies, the air we breathe, water, soil, trees, glass and steel – food is made up of chemicals, which are essentially substances composed of atoms or various combinations of atoms (molecules). They are the basic building blocks of all living and non-living things.

The key to optimal health is to limit our exposure to the unsafe chemicals. But first we need to know what those are. In general, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) says it’s best to avoid the following ingredients:

  • Artificial sweeteners: Aspartame, Acesulfame K, Saccharin
  • Food dyes
  • Mycoprotein (Quorn-brand meat substitutes)
  • Partially hydrogenated oils (trans fat)

And don’t forget to cut back on sugar and salt, which can cause more harm than all the other additives combined.

So, are healthy energy drinks that are organic really better for your health? The answer is a resounding YES. When you drink organic beverages, you avoid synthetic pesticides, growth hormones, genetic engineering, and artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, among other unnatural things. You also help to protect natural water supplies, build up soils, and preserve biodiversity.
