1. Adds All-Natural Foods to Your Diet
Organic foods are free of genetically modified organisms  (GMOs) and contain naturally-derived pesticides. This means that organic produce is generally grown with organic-approved herbicides and is naturally controlled (crop rotation, hand weeding, mulching, and tilling).
2. Helps You Build Healthier Habits
Consuming organic foods tends to help you transition to a healthier lifestyle. They contain fewer pesticides than conventional products  which means when you consume organic foods, you are less exposed to those possibly harmful products.
If you really want to adopt an all-organic diet, it’s important that you chat with your nutritionist or your local healthcare provider.
3. Helps You Take Part in an Environmental Cause
Organic farming methods are believed to help to reduce pollution and soil erosion, improve soil fertility, and consume less energy. They may also present less of a risk to the animals and neighbours who live close to these organic-friendly farms.
