The Organic Food Movement: Trend or Truth?
In recent years an organic food movement has swept the nation. Many have jumped on the bandwagon to eat organic for many different reasons. But what exactly does "organic" mean? Many people assume it is healthier to eat organic but do not really know what makes their food organic or what, if any, benefits result. So is there truth behind the belief that an organic diet is healthier for us and for the planet, or is it simply a passing trend?
For all of the talk generated by the term "organic" I find that not many people really know what it means. As defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program, organic food is:
"produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water ... Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation"(organic FAQ).
