Organic Foods...

HI all

As we all know that organic foods are safe for us.. by mentioning Organic let us be little bit more specific like "foods that does not have toxic residues".

The reason I said is that, the concern on health from agrl products from intensive methods are the pesticide residues. There are ways to reduce this toxic residues in the vegetables, tubers, fruits and flowers etc of economic importance by using pesticides of organic / plant origine, adopting other means of plant protections like keeping traps for pests, growting crops that are more susceptible etc..

At the same time, the applicaiton of chemical fertilizers (fertilizers that are based on chemical compounds as carriers) is harmful to the soil / medium where the crop is grown. The toxic chemicals from the fertilizers seldom reaches the end product namely the yeild.

So when you shop for Organics.. pls be specific for toxic free products..

See u all later..

But don't think one has any opion but to believe the seller!. If the seller committed to take you for a ride and sells his normal produce as organic product how can you differenciate? Is there is any standard specifications/marks issued by Standards Institute or some like that?
