By now, you have probably heard all about choosing organic rather than conventional foods. But why? Is organic really any better than conventional? Newcastle University conducted a study that shows organic foods not only have more nutrients than conventional products, but organic farming practices are better for our soil, air, and water. There have also been studies that have linked the increase of various diseases to increasing exposure to harmful byproducts of conventional farming. Choosing organic can improve your health with reduced exposure to toxic chemicals and promote a healthier ecosystem by only utilizing farming practices that are beneficial for the animals, soil, water and air.
