Why organic food is safer

The age old, actually wait, it’s not really that old because it popped up relatively recently in the past decade or so, debate: Is organic food better or is conventional food better? Before we jump into it, let us start by defining what Organic food is. Organic food is food that has been raised or grown without the use of any pesticides, antibiotics, or has been genetically modified. Organic food needs special attention, explaining the relatively higher price point it gets when compared to conventional food.
The term better is very broad, and can encompass things like nutritional benefit, environmental effect or generally overall impact on us and our earth. Many studies have been conducted which look into this very same topic. Studies have been made that compare both foods together nutritionally, and while organic food did show some positive health benefits, not enough evidence was there to reach a conclusion. That being said, organic food has been shown to be safer, and here’s why organic may be safer:
1. Vegetables have less pesticide residue.

2. Livestock is healthier.

3. Livestock is free from antibiotics.

4. Livestock does not receive hormones to unnaturally grow them.

5. Organic dairy causes fewer allergic dermatitis incidents.

6. Organic food contains less toxic metals.

7. Bacteria in livestock have less antibiotic resistance.
