The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While the regulations vary from country to country the fact remains that the organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers.
How your food is grown, processed, packaged and delivered can have a major impact on your physical and mental health as well as the environment.
Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidents, vitamin C, calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium than their conventionally-grown counterparts and people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods.
Organic produce contains no chemicals, antibiotics or synthetic insecticides which leave residues that remain on (and in) the food we eat.
Organic tastes so good. Since it is not genetically modified, or covered up with pesticides, organic produce has a richer and better overall taste and is much more gratifying.
Organic farming is better for the environment. Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without pesticides is surely far better for nearby birds and other animals as well as people.
Organic food is GMO-free. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) or genetically engineered (GE) foods are plants whose DNA has been altered in ways that cannot exist in nature or in traditional cross-breeding.
So basically to sum it all up; Organic is the way that food was meant to be produced; food that we put into our bodies should not be full of pesticides or hormones and antibiotics, and they should not be genetically modified.
