Here are the top reasons to choose organic foods today:
1. Avoid chemicals
Eating organically grown foods is the only way to avoid the cocktail of chemical poisons present in commercially grown food. More than 600 active chemicals are registered for agricultural use in India. Reports shows that 90% of the chemicals applied to foods have not been tested for long-term health effects before being deemed "safe."
2. Benefit from more nutrients
Organically grown foods have more nutrients—vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients—than commercially grown foods because the soil is managed and nourished with sustainable practices by responsible standards.
3. Enjoy better taste
Try it! Organically grown foods generally taste better because nourished, well balanced soil produces healthy, strong plants.
4. Avoid GMO
Genetically engineered (GE) food and genetically modified organisms (GMO) are contaminating our food supply at an alarming rate, with repercussions beyond understanding. GMO foods do not have to be labeled in India . Because organically grown food cannot be genetically modified in any way, choosing organic is the only way to be sure that foods that have been genetically engineered stay out of your diet.
5. Preserve our ecosystems
Organic farming supports eco-sustenance, or farming in harmony with nature. Preservation of soil and crop rotation keep farmland healthy, and chemical abstinence preserves the ecosystem. Wildlife, insects, frogs, birds, and soil organisms are able to play their roles in the tapestry of ecology, and we are able to play ours, without interference or compromise.
6. Reduce pollution and protect water and soil
Agricultural chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers are contaminating our environment, poisoning our precious water supplies, and destroying the value of fertile farmland. Organic standards do not permit the use of toxic chemicals in farming and require responsible management of healthy soil and biodiversity.
7. Support Farmer’s Livelihoods
Organic farming reduces dependency on external inputs like seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Instead they are produced from cow dung, bio-mass, beneficial herbs and leaves. Thus we support the traditional method and reduces the financials burden of the Farmers. Exposure to numerous chemical pesticides shall be eliminated and making our Farmers healthier
