Organic means working with nature, not against it. Organic farming is better for the environment. Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and uses less energy.
Health and organic food is associated.
There have been several studies showing the difference between organic and conventional foods. Organic fruits often have a lower water content and therefore contain more nutrients.
What are the possible risks of pesticides?
Most of us have an accumulated pesticide build up in our bodies due to many years of exposure. This chemical “body burden” as it is called medically can lead to health problems such as headache, birth defects, and added strain on weakened immune system. Some studies have indicated that the use of pesticides even at low doses can increase the risk of certain cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, brain tumors, breast cancer and prostate cancer.
