Organic Food  

What is organic food?

Food that is grown and processed without the use of toxic chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides and other artificial treatments is called organic food.

Why organic food is better?

The organic food brought by farmers directly from their farms is better for you and your family. There are over 7000 various artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, residual antibodies, hydrogenated fats and processing aids that are used in food processing. However, none of these are present in organic based products. To increase the yield of food grains, a cocktail of poisonous chemicals, highly toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics & growth hormones are used in intensive farming, which are even banned in developed countries. nearly 90% of pesticides never reach the pests, instead of that they end up in contaminating soil, air and water thus enter in the food chain. So, organic food's strength lies in what it doesn't contain.
