A better option?
Organic foods are items that are produced, processed and packaged without using chemicals including items such as vegetables, fruit, milk, meat and cotton.
The key issues for concern are pesticide residues in and on food, agricultural practices that hurt the environment, and antibiotic use in animals.
At the moment, there is no proof that organic foods are more nutritious than conventionally grown foods.
Organic Farmers that raise Livestock do not believe in treating BSE or any antibotics.Therefore if their animal gets sick it either goes to butcher (which is contaminated meat) or they let it suffer and die
Organic farmers do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides
So instead they adopt techniques to nourish crops and protect the soil which reduces groundwater pollution, uses less energy and less water.
Organic farmers strive to maintain living conditions that accommodate natural behavior and health while limiting antibiotic use. However If their animal gets sick organic farmers do not believe in treatment and the animal often suffers and dies as a result
Organic food tends to cost more than conventionally grown food because Organic farmers say it is more closely reflects the true cost of growing the food.
