General Information Pertaining to Organic Food Farming

reduce the environmental pollution caused by intensive non-organic farming.
Therefore, in the long term, more money might be spent for non-organic food rather
than organic vegetables. However, what are the health benefits of eating organic
vegetables?

Some research and studies indicate that organic vegetables has more minerals like
potassium and iron compared to non-organic food. Since there is no usage of
pesticides, this is understandable. In the case of non-organic farming, pesticides are
normally used to produce larger vegetables.

Nevertheless, pesticides are chemicals, which are prone to cause notable health side
effects, especially in the long end. Young children may have a harder time since they
are more vulnerable to diseases and the like. Another common aspect among
non-organic food is the usage of preservatives and artificial sweeteners. This stuff
also can cause problems to one's health especially after some time.

In the case of organic vegetables, pesticides, preservatives and other chemical
compounds are not used. In organic farming, there is more focus towards using
natural methods and practices to promote good growth of vegetables and fruits.
Therefore, organic fruits and vegetables does seem like a better choice in terms of
health and well-being in comparison to non-organic food.

Another important point is the use of antibiotics in non-organic livestock. To prevent
disease and promote growth of livestock, animals are injected with certain
antibiotics. Hence, animals might seem much fatter compared to organic animals.
Considering the effects of antibiotics on people's health, countries like UK discourage
the usage of antibiotics in animals for promoting growth.

However, this does not stop non-organic farmers to use antibiotics. Antibiotics are
strictly used for treating illnesses in organic farming. Since organic farming practices
good husbandry and appropriate stocking levels, it is possible to prevent diseases
without the usage of antibiotics. Residues of antibiotics in animals can be transferred
to the people who eat non--organic meat.

Since antibiotics can cause some health side effects as well, it is possible for these
people to experience health problems at a later stage.
