Argumentative Essay On Organic Food
Organic Foods
The topic of being healthy is currently trending in our world right now. Everyone wants to follow
the idea and live some form of a healthy lifestyle. Along being healthy, there is the demand of
eating healthy; which is not always easy. There are so many types of food to consider, that it is
almost overwhelming to search for healthy options. These options can range from yogurt to granola
or even the type of carrots we choose, especially when there are different forms of farming methods
for our vegetables. These methods of farming include conventional farming or organic farming. The
difference? Simple, one requires the use of harmful fertilizers and pesticides; the other does not.
Therefore, when it comes to deciding on the right vegetables for your health, organically grown food
is your best option, here's why.
First of all, the counter argument needs to be addressed. Many argue that there is not a significant
difference between organic and conventional foods. Disagreements often sound like, "There is very
little scientific evidence to support any health benefits for organic products" (Andrei). Opponents of
organic food have argued that it is too expensive and not at all worth the high price. They state that
"Organic has become a synonym for luxury" (Andrei). Many are choosing to eat organic simply
because they can afford it. Although organic food is supposedly healthier, "A 2009
meta–analysis...said there was no nutrient difference in organic versus conventional"

Organic Food
An introduction to organic foods
In spite of the increasing popularity of Organic food these days, most of the people do not have a
clear idea regarding the definition of organic food. In simple words, Organic foods are those foods
that are produced, processed and packaged without using chemicals. They have been accepted due to
their perceived health benefits over conventional food. The organic industry is growing rapidly and
has caught the attention of farmers, manufacturers and, above all, consumers. Some of the popular
organic food items include organic tea, organic coffee, organic wine, organic meat, organic beef,
organic milk, organic honey, organic vegetables, organic fruits, organic rice, organic corn, organic
herbs, organic...show more content...
The modern
Indian lifestyles and lifestyle–related diseases, as well as limited time to cook at home, are also
expected
to create demand for health and wellness products in the coming years. These factors, coupled with
environmental issues and growing resistance towards genetically modified food products, are
predicted to
accelerate growth in the organic food category.
Indian consumers currently spend a large portion of their income on food. Nearly 45 percent of
consumption expenditures go for food (51 percent in rural areas and 39 percent in urban areas). In
urban
areas, the consumption of processed and ready–to–eat (RTE) or convenience foods is higher due to
relatively higher disposable incomes, exposure to a greater variety of processed foods, a preference
for
quick meals, and familiarity with foreign foods or cuisines. Rural consumers tend to prefer traditional
Indian foods prepared at home, but exposure to processed foods is increasing even in rural areas.
Demand for premium high–value foods such as chocolates, almonds and other dried nuts, cakes and
pastries, imported fruits, fruit juices, and Indian sweets peaks during the fall festive and wedding
seasons.
With the penetration of modern retailing in the suburbs and semi–urban areas, more and more Indians
have access to retail shops carrying organic food products.
Shopping habits

Bettering one's body is one of the most common New Year's resolutions. Whether it is eating
healthy or exercising, people are always searching for ways to improve themselves. The food
industry has recently seen a substantial increase in the demand for organic foods as opposed to the
more common option of conventionally grown products. In 1990, the revenue spent on organic
foods was only $1 billion, soaring to $21.1 billion in 2008, and reaching $26.6 billion in 2009
(Crinnion 4). This significant increase in demand is due to the environmental effects and the
overwhelming benefits to our bodies. When addressing significant issues such as personal health and
climate change, organic foods are a solution that can conquer two birds with one stone.
The rise of the organic food industry has been massive over the past decade alone. The increase in
consumer demand has led to a wider array of organic foods becoming readily available. Sales of
organic food in the US totaled $5.4 billion in 1998, $6.5 billion in 1999, $7.8 billion in 2000,
$13.8 billion in 2005, and $24.8 billion in 2009. (Organic Trade Association). Prior to the corporate
companies take over of our food system and their use of harmful chemicals, there was a primitive
method to growing food. The organic industry is now trying to reestablish that in order potential to
save time and improve crop quality.
The GMO market is comprised of a few major corporations, with the largest one being Monsanto.

Organic vs. Non-organic Foods Essay examples
Organic products and non–organic products have been a subject of interest for me for a great
amount of time because I have often questioned whether there really was a difference between the
two types of products. I always wondered what the nutritional, economic, laborious, and pollution
differences were, if any, in the creation of the two types of products. Through research, I have found
several sources of information which allow me to determine more than a physical difference
between the two. To start, labeling something as organic is specific and determined by the United
States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The regulations set are extremely specific and it is
relatively difficult to meet the standards. The pesticides...show more content...
The only exception to the use of organic ingredients is if they are not commercially available in
organic form. This gives farmers the option to make their own organic ingredient or non–organic
ingredient. The commercially unavailable ingredient is ignored when certifying the product as
organic or non–organic (6). A problem that arises in the certification oforganic food is that there
exists over 40 private organizations and state agencies that certify the production of food as
organic. The standards for consideration of certification are still the same, but the requirements
to receive the certification of an "organic" product may differ from agency to agency. For
example, a pesticide may be approved by some agencies, while other agencies would prohibit it.
This leads to some variance in the organic material a consumer purchases, and the product may
turn out to be harmful to the individual (6). If the product fulfills the requirements of being
organically made, then it qualifies for having the option to place the USDA organic label on the
package. However, if the farmer does not wish to do so, the USDA organic label may not be
placed on the crop or livestock. There is also an alternative in the labeling, where the product can
be claimed to be "made with organic ingredients." The label certifies that the good was made with at
least 70 percent organic ingredients (4, 1). The difficulty of producing organic products may

Essay on Organic Foods
Organic Foods
"You are what you eat", or so they say. In today's supermarkets, organic foods are everywhere. Not
only are there organic fruits and vegetables, but there are also organic dairy products, organic meats,
organic convenience foods, organic wine, beer, coffee, tea and even clothes made with organic
cotton. All of these choices have made organic foods the "fastest–growing segment of the grocery
industry." The Organic Trade Association (OTA), in its "Business Facts" fact sheet available at
www.ota.com, cites Natural Foods Merchandiser, a trade magazine, as measuring organic industry
growth at 20 percent or greater for the past nine years. Approximately two percent of the U.S. food
supply is grown using organic methods. In...show more content...
Many of the chemicals used to grow and process food today have greatly expedited the entire food
production process. However, Researchers and Scientists in the past relied solely on the efficiency
aspect of the process with little regard to any long–term health affects potentially resulting from the
intake of such foods, especially with the younger population whose immune system is more prone to
ailment.
One of the main principles of organic farming is the cultivation of products without the use of
harmful chemicals and additives. This use of chemicals, both past and present, has led to "Factory
Farming," a popular term describing the mass quantities of food produced throughout the twentieth
century. The rise of these factory–produced foods caused the decline of small scale and family
owned farms. However, the more recent rise in awareness and waves of environmentalism, organic
farms, small and large are back on top and often benefit local communities, land and especially the
people who farm them (B.Wyland, Personal Communication, 1, March, 2005).
The word Organic itself describes a way of growing food. It's a form of agriculture that arose in the
last century in response to the increasing use of synthetic and often toxic chemicals to grow food.
The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), a governmental advisory panel to the National
Organic Program, wrote this condensed definition of organic farming in

Only in the U.S., retail sales of organic foods were $6.2 billion in 2015: California made up the biggest part of the country's organic food market, with $2.436 billion of total sales; Colorado was on the ninth place with $155 million of total sales ("2015 Certified Organic Survey" 9). Today, organic products are available in almost every conventional grocery store and often have a higher price over conventional products. In fact, the majority of consumers believe that organic products do not contain pesticides or antibiotics, and they are better for health and the environment. Because the U.S. Department of Agriculture regulates the use of the "Organic" and "USDA Organic" labels, it is a primary driver of the marketing success of organic products in the U.S. Misunderstanding of the principles and practices of organic farming, labels and quality of organic food, values and motivations of consumers, have made many debates in our society. The Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 established uniform national standards for foods labeled as "organic". Now, the label "organic" is used to show that food or another agricultural product has been produced through methods and practices defined by the U.S. Ryzhaya 2 Department of Agriculture (USDA) and its National Organic Program (NOP) ("Organic Standards").

"Only organic foods can keep you safe." Catch cries such as these seem to plague the media. However, consumers do not need to constantly worry about eating a strictly organic diet. These phrases use the fear tactic when, in fact, these claims aren't always true. Eating conventional, or non–organic foods, is not as bad as you think. And organic foods are not as praiseworthy as they seem to be. The organic label should not be a symbol for edible. America should stop ridiculing conventional foods, and instead, consume them because they are safe to eat, better for a growing population, and are less expensive than their organic counterparts. To begin, organic foods do not have significantly better nutritional and health value than conventional foods. Many people choose to go organic because they want to live a "healthy, pesticide–free lifestyle". Contrary to popular belief, organic farming actually does use pesticides. The word organic does not necessarily mean pesticide free. Organic food means that the pesticides used are derived from natural ingredients. Another common misconception is that the pesticides used in organic farming are safer, just because they are natural. That is not necessarily true. When compared to other naturally occurring pesticides, the residues of synthetic pesticides were shown to have lower levels of cancer promoting Get more content on HelpWriting.net

Food Consumption Of Organic Food Essay Food consumption patterns are rapidly changing nowadays as a result of environmental issues, concern about the nutritional value of food and health issues. Issues such as quality and safety in food attract consumer interest in organic food that is free from pesticides and chemical residues.

This increase in food demand also calls for more efficient ways of growing and providing the food. Two methods that are very controversial are the organic and conventional method. While many people support the organic method because of its known benefits, others feel that it is an over inflated industry that cheats consumers out of their money.

It is also shown that pesticides are partly responsible for the rising cancer rates and birth defects among children ("Pesticides"). Organic farming methods avoid the use of these chemicals and rely on natural method to control crops ("Farming, Organics"). Examples of these methods are crop rotation, which consists of planting different crops every year and disrupts the life cycle of pests and provides a natural fertilizer ("Farming, Organics"). Organic farmers also use natural fertilizers such as sulfur and interplanting methods that alternate crops in the field, which discourages pests to live there ("Farming, Organics"). By not using multiple chemicals to control crops, organic farming also ends up being better for the environment. Organic farmers use natural fertilizers such as manure so that they do not release artificial chemicals into the ground ("Organic Food"). In June of 1999 a report made by the U.S. Geologic Survey, found that most waterways and ground water supplies in both urban and rural areas contained enough pesticides to endanger aquatic life ("pesticides"). These chemicals can also leak into streams and encourage the growth of algae and intoxicate the water ("298 John P. Reganold et.al").

It has really opened my eyes about the food industry and how a lot of companies are lying to us. When I started this class I was all about getting the most food for the small amount of money I had. Once this class started it made me feel passionate about eating more sustainable and supporting organic companies. Since I am short on money I started with making small changes I could be proud of. I started solely shopping at Trader Joe's where they have affordable organic options. My first small change was getting rid of my regular table salt and now I use the pink Himalayan salt when I cook. I also started purchasing organic condiments and shopping for fresh organic produce. With these changes I was able to still have affordable meals and feel good about what I was putting in my body. My belief is that I will shop organic as often as possible and always make the best decisions for my body. My health and weight have always been a problem my entire life.

  • 18. The Pros And Cons Of Organic Food Most of the food we get from the grocery store, to feed ourselves and our families, has been exposed to dangerous chemicals that can lead to many health problems. Organic food on the other hand, is a safer choice, free of hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification organisms. It is mandatory that any food being labeled Organic, must be produced without these dangerous chemicals. The unnatural methods conventional food farmers use is an even greater risk to the health of pregnant women and children. Residue that is left behind by these chemicals on the food we eat, is one of the highest environmental risks for cancer. Although conventional food is cheaper thanorganic food, it may cost us many health problems, over time. Conventional food farmers use over four hundred and fifty different pesticides and herbicides to protect their crops from mold, insects, and rodents. In the United States, over one billion pounds of pesticide is used every year (Alavanja, 2009). Repeated contact with pesticide correlates with increased rates of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, birth defects, reproductive issues, respiratory problems, and countless other health issues. Pesticides contain a dangerous chemical called organophosphates. The residue left behind from this chemical is rated one of the top environmental risks for cancer. Conventional food is four times more likely to have residue of pesticide, than organic food (Br J Nutr. 2014). This residue is also Get more content on HelpWriting.net

Consumers think that organic foods have more nutritional value, better taste, and have a smaller environmental footprint. Consumers have been willing to spend 10% to 40% more than their traditional counterpart. However, there is little evidence that organic food contains more nutrients, has a better taste, or has less of an environmental impact than traditional foods.

Mineral content may be affected by the soil such as iron; nevertheless there is no significant difference by these two farming methods in terms of nutritional content. Another common belief about organic food tastes better. Taste is influenced by many factors such as freshness, which is dependent on the collection methods, production speed and shipment times of goods. In a test with organic vegetables conducted by the University of Hawaii, researchers discovered "There was a certain difference in taste, But the organic food did not taste any better." There also has been some debate if organic farming has been beneficial to the environment as perceived by consumers. Although, organic farming does not utilize pesticides, the process by which crops and livestock are grown can be just as dangerous if not fully understood. The USDA requires organic farms to grow produce without the use of synthetic fertilizers. Therefore, farmers must use poop from organically fed animals. This method may lead to cross E–coli, and Salmonella to be cross contaminated in the food supply. Furthermore the byproduct of the animals used to fertilize produces methane, which produce 23 times more greenhouse gasses than planes and automobiles. In addition as many as 40% of organic food are from foreign countries and, 300 of them are in China, This consequently leaves a bigger carbon footprint to ship the products.

You might be surprised to learn of the chemicals known to exist in the foods we eat daily. I hope to evaluate the benefits of organic food versus those of conventional food and then you can make your own decision based on my presentment. Organic food is an alternative to conventional food. It is marketed as pure, wholesome, natural, and still small scale. People shopping for organic food are doing so to avoid the chemicals and not necessarily because the organic products have more nutrition. When I go shopping at the local grocery store I will purchase fresh produce such as carrots, potatoes, fruits, and meats to avoid all the chemicals that could very possibly be part of the nonorganic similar items. It is possible that the nonorganic carrots could very well be grown in soil that has been heavily fertilized year after year and/or sprayed with chemical pesticides.

First, we are going to talk about organic agriculture. The first thing that farmers do before planting more crops is reviving the soil, by this I mean that they plow the soil so those nutrients are still being used and place manure which fertilizes and sustains the plant. After that the farmers do things like; hand weeding, mechanical control, use mulches, cover crops, crop rotation and dense planting which is a great alternative than using pesticides and also takes more time and work.
