Many people across the globe are still very curious to know the health benefits of organic food. There are anti-organic people who claim that organic food is a complete waste of money, time and efforts. But those who eat organic food will realize that what they claim to say is absolutely absurd and meaningless. Let us discuss some of the main points of organic food.
1- What do we mean by organic – The word organic can have a different meaning in different countries of the world. It all depends upon each country to decide the guidelines for organic foods. But the common guidelines followed by every country will be that the food does not contain synthetic ingredients, GMOs and very little or no processing at all.
2- What do we mean by GMO – GMO stands for ‘Genetically Modified Organism.’ This is how it is carried out. Farmers will inject genes into the crop so that the crop automatically will produce and release pesticides on its own. Many consumers will not support this, mainly because it is as good as directly eating poison.
3- Organic farmers do they use pesticides – The regulations of organic farming are very strict and they strictly prohibit use of pesticides. In fact, each organic farming product has to pass a quality test before it finally reaches the consumers. Only when the quality of the fruit or vegetable is ‘Tested OK for consumption’, it is released in the market.
In all cases organic farming is gaining popularity these days. Though the price of the fruits and vegetables are slightly on the higher side as compared to normal farming, the quality of food is at the highest. You can be assured of clean, healthy and hygienic food enter our body without any traces of pesticides and other poisonous chemicals.
