1.Benefit From More Nutrients
Commercially grown foods are inferior in overall quality and nutrients when compared to organically grown foods.
Enriched, well managed soil produces healthier plants with better tasting fruits and vegetables. Try some and you be the judge.
Commercially grown foods have been shown to have chemical residues used for fertilization, weed control, and pests. Certified organic foods do not use harsh chemicals and are grown the natural way.
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods are poisoning our food supply. No one knows the long term effects of eating these “Frankenfoods.” The only way to keep GMO foods out of your diet is by choosing 100% organic.
5.Support Organic Farming
Commercial farms receive subsidies from the government and have pressure from grocers to provide food that is blemish-free and has a long shelf life. Certified organic farms can be more cost-effective when supported locally and regionally, so buy organic.
6. No antibiotics, hormones, or other drugs in animal products
The EPA has reported that commercial dairy and meat products have the highest risk of containing dangerous substances that can be ingested by its consumers. Certified organic animal products are raised naturally and are free of antibiotics, hormones, or drugs that can adversely affect your health.
7. Help Reduce Pollution
Certified organic farms do not use toxic chemicals in their farming, require responsible management of healthy soil, and apply natural biological systems to control weeds and pests.
8. Preserve the diversity of agricultural
It is estimated that 3/4 of the genetically diverse agricultural crops have rapidly declined in the last few decades. Without diversity in the genes of the food crops we rely on can have dangerous consequences, like extinction of certain varieties.
9.Preserve our ecosystems
Crop rotation and soil preservation ensures healthy farmland for future generations and strict non-use of synthetic chemicals preserves ecosystems. Frogs, birds, insects, wildlife, and the organisms in soil are able to exist in harmony without human interference.
10. Keep The Future For Our Children Safe.
By investing in organics you are upping the ante for a more sustainable food supply for our children and future generations. By taking a more powerful position in the $1 trillion dollar food industry it may convince commercial and conventional farms to switch their practices and join forces in the organic sector.
