Why buy organic? If you’ve shopped for organic products before, you know that they can cost quite a bit more than non-organic items. So, why should you consider purchasing these more expensive products? And if you had to pick and choose, which items can you get away with buying conventionally?
Just as with antibiotics in people, pests can develop a resistance towards pesticides. This makes the use of increasingly stronger pesticides necessary to continuously kill off the pests. With stronger and stronger pesticides, the risk to the humans and animals becomes increasingly greater. Organic farming can help put a stop to the vicious cycle. With organic farming, there are no pesticides to leak into the water, potentially contaminating our drinking water. Conventional farming not only poisons or food, but everyone’s water supply! In organic farming, the soil is built up with organic material, such as compost, which helps to enrich the ground and prevent erosion. Enriched soil also means more nutrient rich foods.
