to genetically modified crops, including decreasing the use of agrochemicals in farming and helping reduce food insecurity in impoverished areas by increasing crop yields . Proponents believe organic farming isn’t sustainable and GMOs are a way to feed more people and preserve the planet. Proponents of organic farming and regenerative agriculture
strongly disagree, and the debate rages on. Check out our detailed article for more information on the benefits of regenerative agriculture and how it can restore healthy soil. Ultimately, long-term studies and more studies, in general, are essential to determine the true risks and benefits of GMOs and their effects on human health, livestock, wildlife, and the environment. Why Do People Go Organic?Organic farmingPeople go organic for many reasons, including to preserve the fertility and biodiversity of the soil and prevent soil erosion. Their goal is to improve the lives of livestock animals and avoid certain practices involved with factory farms and mass feedlot operations, such as toxic
runoff contaminating the water supply. Organic farmers use natural organic soil amendments and fertilizers and believe that plants grown in healthy, nutrient-dense soil are better able to survive drought, resist disease, and tolerate insects. Organic farmers also claim crop yields are better with more natural methods. Another reason people go organic is taste. Anecdotal evidence shows organic food tastes better, which is all a matter of opinion, of course.
