The Debate on Organic Food VS Non-Organic Food

Updated on July 31, 2015

The Debate on organic VS conventional food:

Over time it is the long debate on “organic and conventional food.” People are confused of good, hygienic, convenient and good for health. And other point is the “credibility and availability” of food and other food products. After the research and experience I have come over to certain points which are as following:

First of all I would briefly describe you what is organic food and what is conventional food?

Organic Food: The food produced through organic means or set of prescribed practice on farming without using any synthetic enhancer, chemical fertilizer, antibiotics, pests, hormones, etc. The standard is not fixed for validation of organic food validation and change to different nation and internationally. All the Countries work on their own interest and guideline and standard set of organic farming.

Conventional Food: It is the method of conventionally grown edible vegetable and fruits. It is opposite that of organics because conventional grown use chemicals containing GMO’s, fertilizer’s, pests etc. for high yielding crop and out of seasoned crop.

Second point is credibility and availability of organic food and conventional food:

This point is sense taking and important because it makes the right model for the flora and fauna of that certain part of region. What kind of material at what point and amount should be used that are the regulators, NGO’s or Govt. body who decide.

The other thing here is availability of organic food because what we have provided is not sure the organic products or just set up the logo and licensing the brand under organic certification and practicing or delivering the conventional food in the name of organic. How often are the farmers subsidized or motivate to grown up the organic crop.

Below is the list of questions to be asked and that took the debate into consideration:

1) Are Farmers still using the pesticides in Organic Farming?

This is the first further step to eliminate the use of GMO’s or Genetically Modified Organism in Organic Farming. But there are a lot of short-comings and legislative discrepancies. Law just abides the use of GMO’s in organic farming due to lack of inspection in farming land it is just a paper thing. To optimize and enhancing the result, farmer’s often uses Chemical Fertilizers, Pesticides in farming.

2) How problematic is the pesticide in Farming?

Farmers use pesticide to protect their crops from pests. It is not necessary that the pest used in farming is harmful because sometimes it is not bad.

3) Are the Organic pests safe for User?

In case of organic farming, farmer use organic pests instead of chemical one. The questions remain the same are the organic pests useful? The answer is simple sometimes yes and no, it is not necessarily give rights to the use of organic pest the farmer used and is helpful for the users.

4) What is the reason of expensive organic food as compare to conventional?

There are many reasons that’s what the organic food is much expensive than conventional.

(i) The Number of population or farmers produced conventional food are in big number compare to that of organic farmers.

(ii) The Organic crop takes more time to grow because of their refraction of using chemicals and GMO’s etc.

(iii) The cost of production is higher in organic farming; the rate of govt. subsidies is not covering the expense of production.

5) Why consumers do preferred the organic food?

Apart from the reasons above the consumers are also preferred organic instead of conventional the reason is simple because of psychological promotions and referral communications motivate people to adopt organic.

The Pros and Cons of Organic Food:

After lots of debate over organic and conventional I hereby now show you some point over the merits and demerits of organic food:

(I) Feel Good Moral Support: Organic food provides moral support to consumer in term of health benefit, nutrition and disease free character of food etc.

(II) Better in nutrition: Organic food consists of health and nutritional benefits for its users. It helps in strengthen the immune system and give other health benefits.

(III) Superiority in Taste: Organic food is good in health and taste also.

(IV) Pricing: Though the pricing of organic food is more but it beneficiary support in term of health benefit covers all the burdens of consumers.


So in the end I must say you are the consumers and it is you who take decision whether you wanted to buy low cost conventional food or go for organic food. Sellers promote their food in style means they give surety or guarantee the originality but after a mean time you now that the product is provided to you is no way good but just jerking you with money, time and mind etc.

If it is sure there is real organic food that definitely benefits the health of consumers in many ways.
