The organic food saves the environment from pollution. As Lawrence Robinson, Jeanne Segal, and Robert Segal have mentioned in their article" Organic Foods: All You Need to Know", said that organic farming practices reduce pollution (air, water, soil), conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without pesticides is also better for nearby birds and small animals as well as people who live close to or work on farms. The way of farming inorganic food using synthetic chemicals this is harmful for the environment not as the organic food is way to save the environment. Renée S Hughner, Pierre McDonagh, Andrea Prothero, Clifford J. Shultz II, and Julie Stanton in their article " Who Are Organic Food Consumers?
This means designing the farm so that key nutrients are periodically recycled into the soil, nutrients such as water, carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous . Another benefit to organic farm... ... middle of paper ... ...ncy(CFIA) is responsible for monitoring organic foods to make sure that the Canadian standards are met. Canada should proceed to support organic farming because it is healthier for the Canadians choosing to eat it. In Canada organic farming should continue taking place because it is healthier for the environment, Canadians profit from it and the food is also less disease prone. This form of agriculture prevents worsening the environment by minimizing its pollution as well as helping to sustain it.
Organic agriculture would not likely sustain a growing population while under stress from climate change. Conclusion Organic agriculture would be capable of maintaining a growing population if climate change was not an issue. Changes to the human diet and the use of legumes in fertilization would improve organic agriculture’s capacity to feed the growing food population. Organic agriculture is more sustainable and can effectively feed a growing population for years to come. The problem that lies in the way of organic agriculture's success is man’s desire for more food and greenhouse gas emissions as a result of people.
Organic farming uses techniques in which the nutrients exerted from the produce is retained in the surrounding environment, thus cutting down on soil erosion, water pollution, and carbon pollutions in the air. In addition to these benefits, turning towards organic farming also results in more job opportunities as the field continues to grow, improving the economy. Like Ann Wigmore stated before, society as whole can either significantly impact their lifestyles by wither choosing to improve their eating habits, or they could live in denial as they slowly poison themselves to death. The choice is in their hands. Going organic is an easy decision to make in order to improve the health of the population, the environment and climate around, and the economy.
Organic food has become so popular these days, since people especially in United States are making a commitment to have a good start towards a healthier life. People often doubt whether the organic food is really healthier and more nutritious? Why does it cost so expensive? Well, first of all, the term “organic” is referring to the way agricultural products are grown and processed which later on will affected the quality of the food. In order for a product to be labeled as “organic”, they must meet several specific conditions and requirements.
At the gene level, “traditional and adapted seeds are preferred for their greater resistance to disease and resilience to climatic stress”1. Wildlife tend to thrive in areas surrounding organic farms due to the decreased chemical contamination that is found in high concentration near industrial agricultural factories. These species in combination with the plants grown organically, help optimize nutrient and energy cycling in the ecosystem1. Additionally rotating crops that are seldom found in the environment can help to use the surplus of unused nutrients, allowing the depleted sources to rebuild soil fertility and restore the balance of soil nutrients. The lack of pesticide use and attracting new or re-colonizing species to the organic area help to increase the benefits of organic farming and create a healthier gene pool from which adaptation occurs1.
You can eat less meat, choose sustainably produced food, use organic farming, and cut food waste. Expanding safer way to produce food can have many benefits, which, outweigh the harmful effects. In fact, our environment would be more sustainable than it was since the industrialization era began. Switching to one of the things listed can be a life changing benefit. Industrialized agriculture contaminates our food that is also globally exported.
On the contrary, organic farming relies more on people for knowledge, daily monitoring, and production. A study by the Soil Association shows organic farming can potentially provide 32 percent more jobs per farm than conventional farming in the United Kingdom (Herro 2006). However, critics have argued that human labors will lead to higher food prices, which makes the shift infeasible. But while this may be true in developed country, a full scale shift to organic farming in developing countries, where labors are much cheaper than pesticides, can lead to a much higher profit for the farmers. Organic farming attracts younger employees than any other work industry.
Keeping up with the supply and demand is what we should be improving for our peers. Sustainable agriculture is the production of animal and plant products, food, and fiber using methods in ways where the environment is also being protected, public health is being preserved and the care of human communities and animal safety is being looked after. Preserving the environment is practiced by raising crops and animals by not relying on harsh chemical pesticides and the use of synthetic fertilizers. It is much better for our generation to have sustainable farming because growing fruits and vegetable on sustainable farms makes it safer for us to consume, and also for the surrounding areas. This helps conserve a strong ecosystem and healthy lifestyle for all human beings.
Organic farms are usually smaller than conventional ones, and thus the average energy input per area is smaller. Therefore, the energy saving feature of organic farms is another aspect of its environmental conservation. The growing prosperity of organic food industry indicates a greater health concern from the public because organic food contains more nutrients that are essential for good health. The lower pesticide residue is another advantage of organic foods because pesticide exposure can be the cause of various health problems. Since people value environmental protection more than ever, the positive environmental impacts of organic farming, such as biodiversity, better soil quality and less CO2 emission, are also advantages of organic foods.
