Organically grown food is a growing trend, popular for good reason. Lee looks at the benefits of organically grown food compared to chemically sprayed food.
- The latest market research shows organic farming is one of the fastest growing industries in Australia, worth almost 1.8 billion dollars every year.
- Certified organic means no unnatural inputs. Chemical fertilisers, pesticides, antibiotics or additives are all cut from the production of organic food.
- Organic food reduces the risk of being affected by pesticide residue as massive exposure to pesticides can cause significant adverse effects.
