What's the deal with organic food?

For a long time, it was easy, the organic food movement as a fashion step for a small group of enthusiasts to dismiss environmentalists, and health nuts. Organic food is usually more expensive and harder to find, and tend to have more errors and go quickly in the bathroom. If it is so easy to find, complicating clean, beautiful, well packed, and the cheap non-organic products in supermarkets, because of things? Moreover, they showed a lot of studies that organic food is not significantly more nutritious than non-organic food. So what is the point?

The funny thing about the game anti-biological is to choose the idea that organic food is a new trend that has the power to be among the common people is not much basis. But the fact is that before 20 century, all food was organically. The term does not exist, because they must. This type of food simply reverses the 20th Century trends in food production that affect many people consider both human health and the planet. In other words, "organic food is not some new glimpse. If you ask an organic farm, say that the conventional non-organic farming is unsustainable and volatile.

Basically, avoid this type of agricultural use of pesticides, herbicides and insecticides on crops. Many people mistakenly believe that these chemicals be avoided altogether if in fact still sometimes as a last resort, which is not often used. When it comes to animals is to prevent biological methods, the use of growth hormones and antibiotics, which are not standard organic farming, and they use only organic feed.

The result of these methods is that some 'less organic farms can produce, and can produce more natural to suffer a loss but these companies also have a much lower environmental impact. You must not damage local ecosystems, contain no chemical residues, but do not contribute to rapid adaptation of insect populations, and consume much less energy than their non-organic.

Many countries now have a formal government authorities responsible for establishing standards for organic farming and certify that food manufacturers are using organic methods. are identified in the United States, for a processed food, organic must contain at least 95% of organic food has no artificial additives, and that no specific process technologies such as chemical aging, genetic modification, and irradiation. Some countries also demand for organic food in recyclable or biodegradable packaging, but this is not currently the standard in the U.S.

As you can see, organic food makes sense, although not much healthier than non-organic food. Sure, we still have the highest rates that go together to speak with organic food, but the good news is that this is changing. Global organic production is growing more than doubled in the last six years, and U.S. production by about 20 percent per year. shops are always more conventional transport of organic products, and found the content of total organic food stores is growing. What does this mean? comes with greater availability of lower prices. Many large farms have created an organic part of their activities, all bodes well for the money tied to consumers who want to go organic.
