The principal driver behind the organic movement is a public desire for increased health and wellness. It is widely believed that organic and natural foods are healthier, better for the environment, and more sustainable, than conventionally-grown foods.
Specifically, organic foods are promoted as being:
1. Safer - Natural and organic foods are produced without the chemical pesticides and additives commonly used in conventional foods. Advocates of natural foods argue that this makes organic foods safer, which is widely believed by the public. Though this has not been explicitly proven, the belief that organically grown foods pose fewer health risks remains.
2. Better-tasting - A study at Washington State University in 2001 found that organic apples were sweeter and had better texture and firmness than conventionally grown apples. Studies such as these have contributed to the opinion that organic foods are not only healthier, but taste better than traditional foods.
3. Environmentally friendly - Organic farms have been shown to use less energy and produce less waste than conventional farms. Also, natural farming doesn't use synthetic pesticides, some of which can harm the environment and wildlife.
4. Farmer friendly - Farmers who grow crops in the conventional method generally use pesticides, which studies have linked to various health problems ranging from headaches to cancer. Again, this is not a scientific fact, but it is used as another reason to buy organic and natural foods.
