Are organically grown foods the best food choices? The advantages
claimed for such foods over conventionally grown and marketed food
products are now being debated. Advocates of organic foods a term
whose meaning varies greatly- frequently proclaim that such products
are safer and more nutritious than others.
The growing interest of consumers in the safety and nutritional
quality of the typical North American diet is a welcome
development. However, much of this interest has been sparked by
sweeping claims that the foods supply is unsafe or inadequate in the
meeting nutritional needs. Although most of these claims are not
supported by scientific evidence, the preponderance of written
material advancing such claims makes it difficult for the general public
to separate fact from fiction. As a result, claims that eating a diet
consisting entirely of organically grown foods prevents or cures
disease or provides other benefits to health have become widely
publicized and formed the basic for folklore.
Almost daily the public is besieged by claims for “no-aging” diets,
new vitamins, and other wonder foods. There are numerous
unsubstantiated reports that natural vitamins are superior to synthetic
ones, that fertilized eggs are nutritionally superior to unfertilized eggs,
that untreated grains are better than fumigated grains, and the like.
One thing that most organically grown foods products seem to
have in common is that they cost more than conventionally grown
foods. But in many cases consumers are misled if they believe foods.
So there is real cause for concern if consumers, particularly those with
limited incomes, distrust the regular food supply and buy expensive
organic foods instead.
