10 Good Reasons to Be Eating Organic

1. Your own and future generations will enjoy a healthier lifestyle

By buying organic products, you essentially encourage farmers and businesses to produce them.

2. You can be sure that the costs of ‘real food’ are not hidden by costs of chemicals

When pricing the food and products, all the expenses in making the foods go into consideration. Pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals that are used on conventional crops may make your food not only a health hazard but more expensive as well.

3. An organic guarantee is a guarantee for life

Organic producers commit to purer and higher quality products and food. Their processes are monitored thoroughly to make sure the standards are met.

4. The water we drink, and our animals and pets drink, will be clearer and purer

Farms and corporations like Monsanto, use chemicals to grow the crops. During rain or storms, these chemicals sometimes run off into nearby sewers, rivers, lakes, and farms. Thus polluting and poisoning our environment and us.

5. You can really TASTE organic food and it’s better for you!

Imitations are never as good as the real thing. Raw organic food will always be more delicious and better for your health.

6. Your plates don’t become edible chemistry sets

Many foods today contain genetically modified organisms or GMOs. GMOs have not been thoroughly tested and have been linked to many health issues. By consuming these products, you are essentially volunteering to be a lab test animal.

7. Organic food production helps reduce global warming, as it uses less energy

The conventional way of growing our organic food does not use fancy equipment or complicated processes. In general, organic food production will use less energy and thus help save our environment.

8. Less chemical fertilizers and pesticides reduce harmful soil erosion

Fertilizers and pesticides can contribute to soil erosion. Due to human activity, these unnatural processes destroy top soil faster than we can replace it.

9. Buying organic means helping organic farmers

Organic farmers are being pushed out of the business, and they are becoming very rare. By buying organic products you can support these organic farmers. As our demand for organic food increases, so will the number of organic farmers.

10. Biodiversity is enhanced

Organic farming increases the fertility and quality of the soil. In turn, this increases biodiversity among plant and animal life. Farms which use chemicals actually contribute to the extinction and decline of many species, due to the fact that they are toxic. Organic farming enriches our natural world.

This is just downright disingenuous and false. In the first place, mounting evidence shows that there is very little difference between organic and conventional produce. There is no nutritional difference and you are only 30% less likely to be exposed to pesticides. Organic farmers, following the USDA guidelines, are allowed to use pesticides. The fact that these pesticides are supposedly “natural” in origin, does not really mean anything because some of them (such as rotenone) are more toxic than newer synthetic ones, which are made to be less toxic. The use of fertilizers and pesticides, when used appropriately, actually bring… Read more »

Rebecca, When you say “only 30% less likely exposed to pesticides”, even that in itself is a very large difference. Yes, organic farmers may use natural pesticides. Many people prefer these to their chemical counterparts. And yes, there are always some even natural options that can be harmful, but that doesn’t disprove the fact that for the most part, something created by nature will be much better than something that wasn’t. There are a lot of things that can bring the cost of food down, and believe me, the food companies are capitalizing on that on every penny. But that… Read more »
