Organic Diet consists of foods are those that are grown and processed without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics. Proponents of organic foods maintain that they are healthier than conventionally-grown foods because they are not exposed to these chemicals. Some people also believe that organic farming is better for the environment because it does not rely on chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
There is no scientific evidence that organic foods are healthier than conventionally-grown foods. However, there is some evidence that organic farming is better for the environment. A study by the University of California found that organic farming uses 34% less energy, produces 48% less carbon dioxide, and creates 47% fewer pollutants than conventional farming.
