Organic food has been gaining popularity in the last few years. The increased use and side effects of pesticides and fertilizers has led to this surge of organic foods. Hence various local and central governments have also introduced new regulations and various guidelines to produce and sell organic food. Thus most of the stores in Pickering, Ontario stock organic grocery supplies and organic meat. Though the stores still maintain separate organic and normal foods section, in some they plan to stock only organic food and meat.
In the last few years farmers have been increasingly using pesticides to control various plant diseases and crop endemics. This literally translates to humans ingesting pesticides which can cause harmful side effects like cardiovascular problems, respiratory problems and kidney failure. The chemicals contained in most pesticides are not metabolized in the body often causing a toxic buildup.
While many feel the effect of pesticides are limited to plants the fact is quite contrary. The meat we consume is also quite harmful if it is not organic. Livestock is made to graze on plants which are sprayed with pesticides. Thus the livestock ingests the pesticides whose meat is subsequently ingested by humans.
Organic food products are not only made with crops grown without pesticides and chemical fertilizers but they also help conserving the nutrients in the soil. Various chemicals present in the pesticides and fertilizers cause degradation of the soil thus rendering the patch of land barren after every harvest for at least a year. This adversely affects the bio-diversity of our planet.
Organic meat is also produced in a similar method where the livestock is fed animal feed that is organic thus preventing contamination of the meat by pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The farmers also ensure that to produce organic meat they do not inject the livestock with any antibiotics, medicines or growth inducing hormones.
