Why Organic? Why Naturally Grown?
It's the best food for your HEART, whether it's Organic or Naturally Grown, they both follow the same stringent standards. These include being pesticides free, chemical fertilizers free, GMO free, radiation free, hormones free and chemicals free at any production stage.
So why do you need Organic / Naturally grown food? The question on everyones lips is: Is it really better?
Well to begin with this type of farming differs from convential farming in the methods used to grow crops. Where traditional farmers apply chemical fertilizers to the soil to grow their crops, organic farmers feed and build soil with natural fertilizer. Traditional farmers use insecticides to get rid of insects and disease, while organic farmers use natural methods such as insect predators and barriers for this purpose. Traditional farmers control weed growth by applying synthetic herbicides, but organic farmers use crop rotation, tillage, hand weeding, cover crops and mulches to control weeds.
The result is that conventionally grown food is often tainted with chemical residues, which can be harmful to humans. There is debate over whether dietary exposure to pesticides at levels typically found on food is dangerous, but experts say that consumers should use caution. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60 percent of herbicides, 90 percent of fungicides and 30 percent of insecticides to be carcinogenic.
