Growing crops in healthy soils results in food products that offer healthy nutrients. There is mounting evidence that organically grown fruits, vegetables and grains may offer more of some nutrients, including vitamin C, iron, magnesium and phosphorus, and less exposure to nitrates and pesticide residues than their counterparts grown using synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.
In addition to offering a wide range of nutrients, organic foods help to support good health by reducing exposure to toxic and persistent pesticides, fertilizers, synthetic growth hormones, antibiotics, and artificial ingredients. Plus, everytime you choose organic, you support a system of sustainable agricultural management that promotes soil health and fertility, fosters species diversity, helps combat climate change, prevents damage to valuable water resources, and protects farmers and farmers’ families from exposure to harmful chemicals.
