Going organic is not just a passing fad but a way of life. Each day people are waking up to the goodness of it. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon just yet, we give you 6 valid reasons to do so.
It is healthy: We know by now that organic food has higher nutrient content than our pesticide infested food. Crops harvested in healthy, fertile soils naturally contain higher levels of important vitamins giving us more nourishment. In fact, their agricultural techniques itself enhances the soil quality because of the eco-friendly methods employed. Therefore, crops farmed through natural methods are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and loaded with nutrition that we constantly need.
It is tasty: Most organic food tastes better than the pesticide-grown food. They are fresh, delicious, with a tempting earthy flavor. The fact that they are healthy gives them an extra brownie point. So, what we have are mouth-watering flavours with the absence of artificial food colours or preservatives.
Fortifies children’s growth: Natural food fortifies growing children. Kids are fragile and are therefore more susceptible to toxins than adults. Choosing to go natural would mean giving your kids nutritious and tasty meals. And what’s more, you can then be stress- free about the exposure to GMO, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, etc.
Takes good care of farm animals: A large number of the livestock are raised and kept in unhygienic and crowded conditions. Moreover, they are fed on grains, bird seeds etc., which are itself fused with chemicals. This eats into the well-being of the animal.
It is therefore not surprising that the risk of food contamination through these foods is very high as unhealthy meat goes straight onto our plates and into our stomach.
Taking care of our kisans: Traditional farming can be a risky means of livelihood. Unless great care in undertaken, our farmers can be inadvertently exposed to toxic pesticides and caustic fertilizers. Farmers who cultivate produce using eco-friendly methods are not exposed to any such risks.
Biodiversity: Albert Einstein says that if honey bees disappear from the earth, humans would be dead within 4 years!
The above only signifies how important biodiversity is to mankind. Cultivators using organic methods of agriculture depend on biodiversity. Harnessing what is naturally available in nature is the best way to promote fertile soil and grow healthy crops. This type of agricultural method maintains balance in nature and helps builds a better, a more harmonious planet for the future generation too.
According to Yoga and Ayurveda, everything in this universe, including our body, is made up of 5 elements (panchamahabhuta) of nature. It is therefore but natural that organic farming, which judiciously uses these elements, would grow crops which will harmonise with our bodies without any toxic clash. So, shouldn’t we go organic…?
