Although organic food is expensive, but the health benefits of consuming organic food can vastly worth the cost. Organic food cause less harm to your bodies as well as contain no pesticide nor hormones that are used in farming in other farm products.
Along with this awareness of wanting to eat healthy foods usually comes a concern for how we treat the environment. As we become more educated about how conventional farming methods destroy top soil and pollute our waters, etc., it is only natural to want to buy food that has been grown by sustainable agricultural methods that avoid the unnecessary pollution caused by chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Genetically Modified Organisms are another concern. Through scientific intervention to “improve” crops, mankind has potentially opened a Pandora’s box by messing around with Mother Nature. The long-term damages caused by these biological experiments could be irreversible. While government agencies argue they are perfectly safe, the jury is still out. One example of the damage that can be done by “arranging” nature is when people brought mongooses to Hawaii to get rid of the rats. It did not work, we still have plenty of rats, and now, unfortunately, there are not as many native birds.
Hopefully people would recognise the health and environmental benefits of organic food and that it will soon be commonplace to find organic food at all supermarkets at an affordable price range.
