The problem with 'studies' and 'news' its that everything is paid for and owned by somebody so the stories and results you hear are whatever that sponsor wants you to hear. The food industry is HUGE and evergreen, it will always be necessary, and the big companies have a lot of money.

CLEARLY eating food the way the earth intended it to be produced, without chemicals and genetic modifications, is better for you. Anybody who would try and prove otherwise is smoking something funny. Pesticides are meant to kill. We put that into our bodies and we're told that it's just the same as the food without pesticides? Try again. And genetic modification hasn't even been around long enough for conclusive studies to show what it does to our bodies so we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?

Hello All,

I'm from Jamaica, where most of the vegetables and fruits there are grown organically. It always amazes me that many people in Jamaica live long healthy lives. Many natives are in their ninetys and some live past 100 years old are are still able to wash their own clothes by hand, cook their own food and are still very strong and physically energetic. Many of these people don't take any prescribed medications and utilize herbs from their surrounding to cure any minor ailments. Too add to that a lot of them are poor. However since the influence of cultural diffusion such as fast food restuarants to such places as Jamaica the natives there especially the younger generation are eating less healthier nutritionally depleted food compared to the older counterparts. You then begin to find more illness, and health conditions with this population. Many Jamaicans migrate to America, and once they are here for a few years, they develop illnesses, that they never experienced in Jamaica. It has to be that the organic, all natural food plays a vital role in their health. A lot of them also walk more than the average American does.

Yes organic food is better there is no doubt about that, but corporations knew that and because of that it is more expensive to eat that food, they are forcing everybody to eat bad food...

The food composition of all food materials are different. Generally organic foods are good for our health. Some times we can found conventional foods are better than organic food due to its composition. But we generally accept the organic food as a healthier food. Our farming sector also use to cultivate more organic food. they use several plant foods to increase the productivity of plant as well as soil. The demand of organic food is more than other and we also found these at every food center. http://www.gsplantfoods.com/

Yes, Organic foods are always good for health as these are toxic free and no use of pesticides takes place at the time of cultivating organic food. But sometimes we found it wrong. It depends on the fertilizer used as plant food. Organic fertilizer is used for organic food. Organic food is the safest option in this age of hazardous chemicals.

It is the fact that the organic food is known to have 50% more supplements, minerals and vitamins than products that has been seriously cultivated. so definitely you should increase the intake of the organic components in your diet.

Chemical free is always better than chemicals.
My friends used to mock me eating organic foods before it became a "trend" in 1999.
Years later when they all had kids it was like a revelation to them when they all "discovered" organics.
Funny that.
