Many of us are getting more conscious of the fundamental relationship between food and health. Progress in the medical field has kept many diseases under control, yet some categories of diseases such as heart related diseases or cancerous diseases can only be controlled by a conscious nutritional program. Each of our organs needs specifics nutrients to function at its best and so, some categories of food are good for our heart, brain, skin, sexual performance, etc. among the functional components in food, we can number the following carotenoids, dietary fiber, fatty acids, flavonoids, isothiocyanates, phenolic acids, plant stanols and sterols, polyols, prebiotics and probiotics, phytoestrogens, soy protein, vitamins and minerals. The amount of functional components in foods depends on many factors apart from the fact the foods are organically or conventionally produced. Beyond having nutritional requirements, some foods have biological active components which can prevent or cure some diseases, they are known as functional or organic food. However, many are still in doubt of whether organic food has any health benefits.
In our modest way, we will be elaborating on the ways to prevent and to cure some diseases with the aid of specific foods. Our authority in the field will lean on the authority of many experts in the field of health and nutrition. In this article we project to review the importance of organic foods and its relationship with good health. In subsequent articles, we will be reviewing the types of foods and the way to use them to cure and prevent heart diseases, skin diseases, sexual performance, etc.

Why Buy Organic Foods?-The Health Benefits of Organic Foods.
It is agreed by many experts that organic foods have a fundamental role in our health. Most importantly, organic food are lower in pesticides and artificial fertilizers residues. This is probably an authority answer to the question: Why Buy organic food? ‘Although in vitro studies of organic fruits and vegetables consistently demonstrate that organic foods have greater antioxidant activity, are more potent suppressors of the mutagenic action of toxic compounds, and inhibit the proliferation of certain cancer cell lines, in vitro studies of antioxidant activity in humans have failed to demonstrate additional benefit. Clear health benefits from consuming organic dairy products have been demonstrated in regard to allergic dermatitis’ (Alternative Med Rev 2010; 15(1):4-12).

People refuse to take the responsibility of taking the risk to develop their God-given gift and to take a career course inspired by their gift because they don’t want to take risks. They prefer the securities of a paid job, even if this job can be boring and unsatisfactory with many respects. They have adopted the old thought: “have a steady job and work for a pension” .They don’t recognize that this zone is not safe as it seems to be because they are at risk of leading a wasted life: life where the greater part of their potential has been left undeveloped and unused. Taking risk is to choose a course of action, advance into it despite fears, but with the required knowledge and with success in mind. It is only risk-takers who can accomplish things of great significance in life… They don’t realize that all that make life easy is someone’s contribution to humanity. at a point in time, someone has been willing to take the risk of using his God-given ability and the result is the many inventions and innovations that make the world a better place to be. To everyone’s gift, a mission is attached. This makes us accountable to the gift giver ( the creator)Failure to realize this by taking the full responsibility before God and men to discover, develop and deploy one giftedness is what the Bible calls “ sin”. Etymologically, “sin” means “to miss the target”. Sinning is missing the purpose of existence. Man is created to serve. TO serve God and humanity in a capacity given by God. Refusal to do this is sin; it is the conscious or unconscious decision to live a wasted life. This must rightfully inspire us with the feeling of shame. We cannot have one of the greatest blessings of God in us (a gift), be created at his very image (having part of his ability), be living in a period like this (the digital age which has made volume of information which were not accessible some centuries back now accessible at a fingertip) and still be unable to find enough inspiration to developing our God-given gift and inspire our own generation. Risk-taking most stem from someone’s knowledge of the situation, analysis of his own strength and weakness.
Living outside the deployment of one giftedness is death in disguise. This is most of the time the result of avoiding to fall short of someone’s expectations. This “someone” is often our parents or someone having a certain influence on us. Most of the time, this is also the result of societal influence. People want to do like everyone else, they don’t want to appear odd, they think it is safe to simply follow the popular norm; the status-quo. People prefer to follow a course in which someone else (parent, society, Government, friend, spiritual leader, etc…) think it is safe for them to follow. People do not look inward to search their innermost desire, dream, hopes, tendencies and/or ability in an attempt to decide which type of life they will lead. Most people do not even consult God who has a clear model of success for each individual on earth. In God’s model of success, there is a gift that must be discovered ( 1 co7.7), there is project to carry out (Eph2.10), there is a plan to follow ( Je29.11) and there is a companion to lead us all the way of the filling of God’s plan (1 co2.9-10). God’s model of success is risky by human standards, but it is the safest path to follow if someone wants to lead a flourishing life in all ramifications. God’s wisdom is foolishness for men. People must dare to take risk and to take it responsibly that is involving God in risk-taking.
