Running head: ORGANIC FOOD
Organic food is an organic farming product, which is a farming method free from
artificial fertilizers and pesticides (Winter & Davis, 2006). In other words, this is food that does
not have artificial food additives and preservatives and is grown and preserved under organic
conditions (Winter & Davis, 2006). The pesticides used in the organic farming method are not
synthetic. The argument for organic production is that it cares for the soil to ensure that it
produces the best nutrients for the plants. This also has great benefits to the environment that are
way beyond just growing and caring for the plants (Willer, Yussefi & Sorensen, 2010). There
have been several controversial issues stemming from this subject that has led to some countries
requiring that all farmers that would like to deal with organic food obtain special certifications
(Willer, Yussefi & Sorensen, 2010). Several debates have also risen on whether organic food is
healthier than non-organic food, an issue I would like to look at. I am interested in this topic
because there have been questions about the nutritional value of these foods, whether or not they
are natural and if the standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture are weak.
As earlier mentioned, organic foods are foods which are artificially grown without the
use of additives and preservatives and are mainly preserved and stored under organic conditions.
This means that there is no addition of fertilizers and use of pesticides, and if pesticides are to be
used, they are required to be non-synthetic. I was interested in this topic as a result of the
continued controversy on the health and nutritious aspects of these foods over conventional
foods. Some scientists and researchers argue that the use of additives, pesticides, and
preservatives is harmful to the human body, that it also contaminates the soil, other plants, and
water, while others are of the contrary opinion. It is very important to cover this...
