• Do you know that chemical pesticides and herbicides have been linked to the development of certain cancers like Breast cancer, Prostate cancer, leukemias, lymphomas, Damaged brain functions like parkisons disease, Infertility, Miscarriages, birth defects, autism, depression and many other diseases.
So probably one of the biggest health benefits of organic gardening of all, is just simply skipping all these risks. It’s a pretty simple as that.
2. Increases Our Vitamin D levels: It only takes 20 minutes a day of sunshine to get the optimal amount of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to Type 1 diabetes, bone density disorders like osteporosis, joint and muscle pain, heart attacks, multiple types of cancer, and much more.
3. Its an Enjoyable Exercise: Most people go to the gym to stay healthy and most often with moods of laziness and boredom. And I don’t think I need to tell you more on this. Gardening can be an enjoyable way to increase your exercise in a purposeful, “really doing something meaningful” kind of way.
4. Reducing Stress: Chronic stress is a serious issue and leads to a suppressed immune system, heart disease, weight gain, and more. Being outdoors, connecting with Nature, fresh air and sunshine…it’s one of the healthiest solutions to one of the biggest killers.
