2. Organic products contain 50 percent more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients which positively affect our health.

3. In order to make animals grow faster, they are fed with antibiotics, growth promoting hormones and antiparasitic drugs. These medications are later passed to our bodies through meat and milk. Scientists associate it with coronary arthery diseases and high blood pressure.

4. Organic food tastes much better. Organic fruits and vegetables are juicier and they even smell better.
