You’ve probably heard a lot about organic food and farming by now. Like any health or nutrition topic, some of the statements are overblown and exaggerated. However, we believe that most of the positive reports on organic food are true. First, a definition: Organic food is simply food produced according to certain production standards. For crops, it means they were grown without the use of conventional pesticides, artificial fertilizers, human waste, or sewage sludge and that they were processed without ionizing radiation or food additives. There are, of course, different schools of thought about organic food. Some people believe that organic farming is not as “sustainable” as conventional farming because organic farms require more land. However, we feel differently. We believe the arguments in favor of organic food and farming far outweigh those against them. For example, it’s indisputable that organic farming is better for the environment because organic farms do not release synthetic pesticides into the environment; organic farms are better than conventional farms at sustaining diverse ecosystems; and, organic farms use less energy and produce less waste), which is better for producers. Even when pesticides are used correctly, they still end up in the air, underground water and bodies of farm workers. And, perhaps most importantly: we believe without reservation that organic food is better for you. No study has shown pesticides to be healthy and almost all find them to be harmful to human health.
