Benefits of organic products

Organic foods offer a number of health benefits over conventionally grown products. According to a report in Annals of Internal Medicine published in 2012, consumers of conventionally grown food products have a 30% higher risk of getting affected by pesticides than those of organic products. The report also stated that exposure to antibiotic-resistant bacteria reduces by 33% if organic products are consumed. Organically grown products are nutritionally richer than traditional products. As per a 2012 study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, the level of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants in organically grown broccoli is much higher than conventionally grown broccoli.

Organic dairy products and poultry are seen to contain higher levels of omega-3s, a substance that is very good for the heart. Apart from benefiting its consumers, organic food is also good for the environment. This is because it is mandatory for farmers growing organic products to make use of resources in a renewable way, such that the water and soil can be conserved.
