Organic vs non organic foods essay

I grew up with a walnut tree in our backyard and we always threw out the ones with the holes in the shell. The insects had hatched while inside, being laid before the shells had hardened. They ate their fill and after their way out of the nut so we knew the holey ones would not be good inside. I’m sure the insecticide that is put around the walnut trees would come up through the roots and thus be SYSTEMIC toxin, not a sprayed on one. Many foods have issues from systemic toxins and thus CAN’T be washed off. Organic is the way to avoid this.

Have you ever wondered why genetically modified, pesticide-drenched, over-fertilized, hyper-processed foods are cheaper than organic foods grown without these expensive inputs? 

The answer is simple. These crops, destined to become refined carbohydrates, sweeteners, fats and feed for animals imprisoned in factory farms, get about $20 billion in Farm Bill subsidies every year. 

Organic produce and pasture-raised animal products get no direct support.

According to a study published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Farm Bill crop subsidies contribute significantly to obesity and diet-related disease.

There are many other differences between organic and conventional farming, but these seem to be the most spoken of in regards to consumer health. There have been arguments around whether or not conventional farming methods are safe for one’s health. This is because of the pesticides and GMO’s used in the conventional farming practices. Many people are concerned that those growing practices promote unsafe chemical use, especially because the level of toxicity is said to be under a “safe” level, but what is really safe?
