PCC Natural Markets posted this article which is an excellent read regarding the myth that organic farming won’t sustain our population. In fact, organic farms typically produce the same or more crops than farms that use chemicals. Additionally, if government subsidies were removed from our agriculture, organic foods would actually cost less than their conventional counterparts.
It also discusses the toxic chemicals found in produce, the effect on our environment (where do you think those chemicals go? into the water which runs off & we end up drinking!), the disposal of chemicals in other nations, etc. My guess is that if you read it, you will start to see why buying organic products whenever possible is so important. I recommend you take a few minutes & read it; it’s definitely eye opening!
