Today at every turn we are surrounded by brands and bloggers who talk about healthy living, biohacking, new diets, revolutionary beauty products and more. But there is one international movement that has been growing for over 50 years and that seems to get the least shouted about. This movement is the foundation of all the basics, without which any “healthy” diet can be very harmful and dangerous. It is organic food.
If you look at the history of agricultural development in the twentieth century, it is clear that the organic model emerged as a response to the widespread and rapid development of the industrial-chemical model. It was necessary to separate organic products into a separate category in order to emphasize their mode of production, which is different from the “conventional” one.
Organic products can be called only those products in the production of which only organic methods and technologies were used, without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and artificial chemical compounds. In many countries there are laws on organic production, national standards and technical regulations, strictly controlling its technology and techniques, and as a result – the quality of products. Around the world, the market for organic products increases every year, and at the same time on its advertising producers do not spend much. Marketers do not impose organic products on customers, millions of people choose them because they care about their health and the health of their loved ones. This is proof that organic is not just a fashion, but a philosophy of life.
Every year the demand for organic food is growing. Most people on our planet can not help but notice the deterioration of the environmental situation. The use of organic standards in the production of products, can help in the recovery of our planet.
To date, “organic” is the only legally defined term describing clean food, that is, produced outside the industrial and chemical model of agriculture.
