Are Organic Foods a better option? This is a very common question that we pose to ourselves or debate over whether to buy organic food versus conventionally grown foods. Growing organic foods doesn’t mean that we go back to the farming methods used hundreds of years ago.
In Organic farming, they take modern scientific knowledge and combine them with useful traditional farming methods. Hence firstly we need to know what organic actually means and the benefits of eating organic foods. Organic foods are items that are produced, processed and packaged without using any chemicals including foods items such as vegetables, fruits, milk, and meat etc.
At this moment the major concern are pesticide residue in and on food, agricultural practices that hurt the environment and antibiotic use in animals. Many of these known pesticides are known to cause numerous serious health effects.
Hence it is considered that organic farming is better for our environment as most organic farmers do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. They adopt various techniques to nourish crops and protect soil that reduces ground water pollution and uses less energy and water. Organic farming is not only used for vegetables, but animals as well.
Organic foods tend to cost more than conventionally grown food because it more closely reflects the true cost of growing the food as this form of agriculture relies mainly on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests, excluding the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, plant growth regulators, food additives, livestock antibiotics etc.
Go Organic is the talk that we hear often among the mass today because the fresh organic produce contains on average 50% more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micro-nutrients than intensively farmed produce. Going Organic is only the best way in avoiding eating genetically modified foods.
Organic foods are 100% natural, contains no artificial flavors or preservatives and simply tastes much better and is full of juices and flavor. So think well before you buy as organic foods are fresh, doesn’t harm you, animal and the environment. It is safe for health, tastes better and has more nutritional values.
