Are you deciding whether to Circo2 Review buy food organic or not? Do you question whether it is safer, more nutritious and worth the extra cost when a product bears a USDA Organic label? Several differences between organic and non-organic foods exist. Nutrition, quality, appearance, pesticides, environment, cost and taste are important factors to consider. The word "organic" refers to food produced without most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. If it's meat, the animal was raised without antibiotics and growth hormones and fed an organic diet. Before a product is labeled "organic" by the USDA it must meet strict government standards. These standards regulate how such foods are grown, handled and processed.. The seal also tells you a product is at least 95 percent organic. Made with organic ingredients are products that contain 70 percent organic ingredients. Foods containing less than 70 percent organic ingredients cannot use the organic seal or the word "organic" on their label. Organic foods may have higher nutritional value than conventional food, according to some research. The soil is left in better condition after repeated planting and because you avoid ingesting pesticide residues left of conventional produce. Without pesticides and fertilizers plants increase their production of the phyto chemicals (vitamins and antioxidants) that strengthen their resistance to bugs and weeds. Studies have linked pesticides in our food to headaches, cancer, and birth defects.
