INDUSTRIAL ORGANIC FOOD

THE BEST AND MOST REALISTIC WAY TO FEED OUR COUNTRY

ORGANIC FOOD IS BENEFICIAL TO YOUR HEALTH

  • "Organic food doesnt contain pesticides. Pesticides are believed to cause
  • a number of diseases such as asthma or cancer."
  • "Levels of antioxidants in milk from organic cattle are 50% - 80%
  • higher than in non-organic milk."

ORGANIC FOOD IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

  • "Organic farming rules do not allow chemicals and weed
  • killers... farmers use propane torches to burn weeds by hand."
  • "No chemicals means no toxic runoff into rivers and oceans."

Some people may say that fossil fuels are still used to transport and produce industrial organic food. However, it isn't realistic for everyone to buy local food.
