Organic food is pure, free of chemical additives and preservatives, more nutritious and safer for our health. Genetically modified (GM) crops and ingredients are also prohibited under organic standards.
Organic has on average 25% more vitamins and minerals than produce resulting from industrial farming. Although the price of organic food is on average 20% higher, it is actually cheaper in a head to head nutritional comparison.
Also needed to be taken into account are the hidden costs associated with industrial agriculture such as the harm done to our health, and the destruction of our own planet. Compare this with organic practices, which work harmoniously with nature, keep harmful toxins out of our water, land and air, and place great importance on developing and preserving healthy soil, nourishing crops and animal welfare.
