A review of 343 studies, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, found that organic produce is more nutritious, and that conventionally grown food can be four times as likely to contain pesticide residues. Read more about it HERE.
Even though the health benefits are clear, I think there is an even bigger reason to buy and eat organically grown. Conventional agriculture and farming is disastrous for the soil, for water tables, for all of the ecology. Conventional farming, and GMO, are devastating our planet – and with modern, high-yield permaculture, it can be entirely replaced. Smaller land use, clean environment, restored soils, more abundance, end of hunger, far better health!
Every dollar we spend says YES to something. With everything we eat, we can impact the speed of transition to a 100% organically grown food industry.
