In the rush to produce more and more crops to grow more food and faster, producers have had to resort to using a “lethal cocktail of pesticides” to control disease and insect attack. Its good for them since they make more money but for us its terrible and this is why you need to be informed of the advantages of organic food. Organic food is known to have 50% more nutrients, minerals and vitamins than produce that has been intensively farmed.

People today should go organic in their foods for the following reasons:

  • Reduce The Toxic Load: Keep Chemicals Out of the Air, Water, Soil and our Bodies.
  • Reduce if Not Eliminate Off Farm Pollution.
  • Protect Future Generations.
  • Build Healthy Soil.
  • Taste Better and Truer Flavor.
  • Assist Family Farmers of all Sizes.
  • Avoid Hasty and Poor Science in Your Food.
  • Eating with a Sense of Place.
  • Promote Biodiversity.
  • Celebrate the Culture of Agriculture.
