Why organic food is important ?
now you would ask why organic products are so important for heath.
I want to clear that organic products are little bit expensive because of lesser production. You always have to choose Organic food because it’s free from any chemical fertilizes or any pesticides.
so please choose organic food , at least vegetables, fruits etc. the most important is you have to avoid processed food also. Its better for your health if you only eat fresh vegetables and fruits. But sometimes we don’t have access to organic products in malls and supermarkets. nowadays peoples aware of organic food so big malls have organic product section.
Organic food is expensive
As organic food have lower production so its obviously we have to pay it more. Demand and supply plays crucial role in price, right?
But it will solved soon , for now I would recommend you to buy organic food like grapes, apples, vegetables. reason of this is because these products need lotof care and farmers uses fertilizers and pesticides to maintain quality etc.
