FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Organic restaurant franchise Pizza Fusion launches School Organic Pizza Fridays in order to help children and their families in making the transition to an even healthier diet that can help prevent cancer and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), among other ailments linked to pesticide consumption. Pizza Fusion offers pizza, one of children's favorite foods, in a way that is both wholesome and delicious.
Children are now facing significant health challenges more than ever, one of them ADHD. A study published on May 17th, 2010 in the Official Journal of The American Academy of Pediatrics links ADHD in children to their exposure to pesticides commonly used on non-organic fruits and vegetables.
The good news is we can do something about it. According to a 2008 Emory University study, switching to organic foods reduces the presence of pesticide compounds in children's bodies to near-undetectable levels. These studies reaffirm the findings in the recently published President's Cancer Panel Report: the presence of pesticides in our food increases our risk of disease and choosing organic foods counteracts this problem.
Children are notoriously picky eaters, making the introduction of organic, healthy foods a challenge. Pizza Fusion strives to make this mission possible for children, their families and area schools with their delicious, organic and all-natural fare, and their innovative School Organic Pizza Fridays initiative. As stated in Cookie Magazine, "With multigrain crusts and organic fresh veggies buried under cheese, who cares if pizza is all they'll eat?"
