Many supermarkets, natural markets, health food stores and food sellers across the board are selling canned goods; it is a viable business and it is an easily sold product to many consumers. Many consumers these days don't make the time to prepare the food that would normally come pre-made in a can. Though it is a harsh reality, humans have come to rely on the producers of such products to help them save time when preparing meals for the family.

However, let it be known, canned foods (organic or not) are not neccessarily good for you. Recent studies have shown that 71 out of 78 canned goods contain a synthetic harmone called BPA; it has been shown to bring about cancers and some other diseases of the body. Read more here:

In general, canned food cannot be good for you. The food is sitting on the shelf sometimes with a purported shelf-life of a year or greater. This is not even considering the time between it being partially cooked and canning. Then there are all sorts of "preservatives, vitamins and types of water" that are used to extend the shelf-life of the product. Is this the sort of food you want in your body? Is this the sort of food you want moving into your blood, into your major organs, into your bodily systems?

Take the time to prepare a clean meal for yourself and your family. I know at times it seems as though a canned vegetable addition to the meal is adequate to fulfill your nutrition requirments. In the long run, you could be jeopardizing the health of you and your family.

Develop patience. Cultivate Love. Prepare with harmony. Your flesh and your food eventually become one.

Enjoy a clean meal...
