The Difference Between Organic and Conventionally Grown Food?
YES IT IS!
"Is it really necessary to buy organic food?"
Organic produce tastes better and are healthier than commercially cultivated produce. They contain higher levels of vitamins C and A, more antioxidants and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, chromium and selenium, Since these nutrients are from a natural food source versus a supplement they are in a more readily usable form for your body to digest. Organic produce have no synthetic additives that are linked to ADHD, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Cancer, Diabetes. It also has no residue from the hundreds of chemicals pesticides routinely used in conventional farming, many of which are toxic to your nervous system, disrupt your endocrine system and can cause reproductive abnormalities. Also, organic crops are not and cannot by law, be made from genetically modified crops (GMO's). You get real food as created in nature when you purchase organic produce.
Since you can't remove the hormones, antibiotics and growth stimulators in conventional produce, buy organic if at all possible.
