These days, organic food is all the rage. A quick visit to any grocery store reveals just how popular it has become, with “certified organic” labels printed on everything from cereal to coffee. Though some people are skeptical of the concept, organic food really is better for you and the planet. Here’s why.
1. No Toxic Chemicals
One of the main draws of organic food is that it doesn’t contain synthetic pesticides or herbicides. Conventional farming relies on the use of chemicals to ward off insects and rodents that would otherwise eat the crops. However, trace amounts of these chemicals can end up on the consumer’s plate, potentially leading to a wide range of health effects.
Pesticide residue has no apparent immediate effects. But it can build up in the body over time – a process known as bioaccumulation – and may cause problems later in life. And in countries with lax pesticide regulations, fruits and vegetables can end up directly poisoning consumers.
It’s important to note that some pesticides are perfectly natural. For example, a potent rat poison known as cholecalciferol goes by another name when it’s found in your food: Vitamin D3. In fact, it’s an essential nutrient in the human diet. Therefore, organic farmers can still use pesticides, but not those that cause health problems. You won’t find Roundup in your organic tomatoes.
2. Fewer Additives
Artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives have no place in organic foods. Organic foods can still contain harmless additives like baking soda in bread and enzymes in yogurt, but they won’t be soaked in food coloring, injected with flavors concocted in a lab, or contain unnatural preservatives.
Of course, organic food often has a shorter shelf life than foods made with preservatives. Bread doesn’t naturally last for weeks in the pantry without spoiling. But that’s a small price to pay for a more eco-friendly diet.
