Foods produced naturally tend to contain more nutrients as opposed to those that grow conventionally. Organic foods contain 20% to 40% more antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the cells from damage and from aging fast. Also, organic milk and meat contain 50% more omega-3 fatty acids.
If you are suffering allergies from chemicals or worried about ingesting them, organic foods are perfect. Fresh produce grown in vast quantities tend to use more of these chemicals to sustain continuous production. While organic foods usually come from small local farms.
Good For The Environment
Production of organic food helps reduce soil erosion, conserve water, and improve soil quality. A study, comparing wheat fields where natural and chemically treated wheat plans grew, found that there were 8 more inches of topsoil in the organic area than the other. Also, organic farming uses mulch, which helps conserve water. Since organic agriculture veer away from pesticides and chemicals, they do not contribute to the harmful water runoff that non-organic farms produce.
The refusal to use chemicals also contribute to better soil quality. Organic farming also practices cultivation, which is helpful for the soil.
