You can get more than just organic food. There are other things you use on a daily basis that can be organically sourced as well. The reason for choosing organic is the reduction or elimination of certain types of chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and other things. The goal is to reduce the toxic load on your body from daily exposure to unnecessary chemicals you eat or apply to your body. One choice I made, for example, is to get organic hair dye in Singapore for coloring my hair. I could just choose to go gray, but I prefer not to. I compromise by coloring in the safest way possible.
Most of the products we use for hygiene or cleaning our homes can also be organic alternatives to the harsh synthetic chemicals used in mainstream products. The thing consumers need to know is what chemicals are really safe versus ones that are potentially safe depending on use and circumstances.
Plus, there is a long list of chemicals that are highly toxic yet used in products all of the time. They are considered in how they will be use and the expected level of human exposure. Ever read those product instructions that warn you to wear gloves when handling them? Well, if it is not a concern over color transfer alone, then it is a concern of absorbing the chemical through your skin.
Choosing organic means you are picking things that are by their design made to lower the toxic load your body will be under when using the products. Soaps, cleansers, shampoos, conditioners, hair dyes, cosmetics, lotions, perfumes and other things all have chemicals in them. Some chemicals have a very low risk of any harm. Other have a moderate risk. Others may have an extremely negative effect on people with compromised immune systems or other disorders. Going organic helps reduce exposure and risk.
