  • 2. “Organic or conventional meat? What offers better health benefits? Why should I choose this over the other?” Most shoppers are faced with this tough decision every time they purchase their meat and poultry supplies. Though the price difference is easy to see, the quality difference is hard to compare. Set aside the fact that organic meat is better for the planet. Organic supplies are always free of added hormones, antibiotics, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. The animals are raised the old- fashioned way, in open pastures, on 100 percent vegetarian feed. What does organic mean? Organically raised animals are provided with living conditions appropriate to their behavioural requirements, high quality diet of organically produced feed and ethical animal farming that promotes good health prevents disease and facilitates low stress. When the animal acquires an infection, they give a medical treatment without the use of chemicals. Why choose organic food? A person committed to healthy living does not eat vegetables, fruits, and whole grains alone. They choose organic foods because these provide more nutrition and sustainability. Here are more reasons to choose organic over conventional: Organic food is fresher – Organic food is always fresher because it does not contain preservatives that make it last longer. Organic animals do not intake harmful chemicals – There is no need to worry if the food has been exposed to antibiotics, added hormones and other artificial drugs. Organic animals are not allowed to eat genetically modified foods.
  • 3. Organic contains fewer pesticides – Pesticides are chemicals such as herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. These chemicals are used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on the food most people eat. Organic farming is good for the environment – Organic farming promotes a better living condition. This reduces pollution, soil erosion and use less energy. Any person should not confuse organic with natural. Natural food is an unregulated term that can be applied by anyone while organic food is a standard set by authorities.
