Organic Vegetables & Grains Production
Organic Foods and Health
While the organic label on food means that it was grown according to regulations, there is still rampant debate about the health implications of organic growing. A 2014 study in the British Journal of Nutrition presents a compelling case for organic food and is often cited in debates on the issue. The study is based on a meta-analysis of 343 peer-reviewed studies on organic foods and found that organic foods may be more nutritious and safer than non-organic foods.
Grown with natural fertilizers (manure, compost)
Pests are controlled using natural methods (birds, insects, traps) and naturally-derived pesticides.
The benefits of organic food
How your food is grown or raised can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, 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 fewer pesticides.
Chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on (and in) the food we eat.
