Even though organic fruits and vegetables are more expensive than conventional fruits and vegetables they are worth the extra cost.
Do you agree or disagree?
Over recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of organic food around the world, which brings various benefits to the public. Although some people think organic fruits and vegetables are not worth the extra cost, I disagree. I believe organic food brings more nutrition to people and do less harm to the environment.
Firstly, there are numerous nutritive facts in organic fruits and vegetables. That means, if people consume them often, they will get all the vitamins, calcium and the iron need for their body. In addition, organic foods do not contain many chemicals compare with non-organic food. As a result, eating organic food can have positive effects on people’s health.
Secondly, growing organic fruits and vegetables can minimize the damage to the environment. Organic food must be grown in the “perfect” soil without any pollution, which requires the soil to be free from chemicals and other pollutants. Also, during the process of growing organic fruits and vegetables, natural fertilizers are added and little chemicals were used so that this process did not contaminate the environment. As a consequence, growing organic food, to some extent, helps protecting the environment.
Moreover, GMO products or non-organic products have a large number of negative effects to the public. In order to increase harvest, chemicals and fertilizers are used on corns, apples and other products. These additives destroy the soil and water in the field. The soil that has been contaminated can only be used to grow certain products instead of organic ones. Therefore, if people consume excessive number of those produces, they may suffer from digestive diseases or even cancer.
To conclude, from what has been discussed above, it is fair to state that organic food is worth the extra expenses. Governments should, therefore, encourage the growing of organic products in order to offer a reasonable price for daily consumption of the public for the public health as well as sustainability of our environment.
