Comparison between Organic and Conventional products

Which are better Organic or Conventional products in Yield view? In the future, the population of the world will reach 9 nine milliards. Is it possible to feed this population with just organic products? Indeed, bio products are more expensive than conventional ones. They are very healthy as well. Whereas conventional products are easy to get a good yield, but quality differs. Can we say that conventional products are good for our health? My point of view is that we can consume both of them, but we need sport, making a program that balances our consumption, and culture of knowledge the aroma additives. More and more people are rightly expressing concern about the level of additives in food and namely the long-term consequences of their use and side effects. It is more important to know the threshold that we have to avoid. Organic products are healthy that does not contain any additives. To sum up, Both kind products are important for us, but it is just a question of awareness to the level of conventional one's dangers. What do you think about this issue?

I dont really know exactly how organics are better for you. Less pesticides? Non gmo? I still dont really know. I have heard that organic carrots taste a lot better than regular ones!

Yes, we use neither industrial fertilizers nor pesticides. We use just bio pesticides and bio fertilizers. For example, we use natural oils extracted from plants what we call biopesticides. These pesticides naturals contain some substances harmful for the pest. They are so efficient.

As much as possible I prefer organic this is why I plant my own vegetables and fruits, now for other products that I can not produce I prefer to buy organic.

Organic products, Like Conventional one can either be good or Bad for you depending on the product itself. So we must be wise about knowing which conventional products are better or worse and the other way around.

Yes, you are right, we use them both, but we should at least know the limit of additives. Some additives are very dangerous, so we have to be careful to this kind substances.

Organic is healthy and better they say. You can tell from the price difference. Anything better always cost more.

It is well known that organic farming is hard to achieve a big production and with a high quality. In contrast, we produce more and we can give a product with acceptable taste. It is affordable for all people, it is just a question quantity. So, it is more obvious, poor production with high quality, it is often expensive.

Organic fruits and vegetables are better because they are supposed to be grown without pesticides. If you eat conventional you should eat locally. Not foods from other countries because they have to use more chemicals to keep it because it is coming from a long distance. I try to eat organic when I can. When I do eat conventional I try to eat locally.

@Farcha Yes, GMO is really bad and it is widespread in the USA. You can tell the GMO fruits and vegetables because they are usually the real big one's and the one's without seeds. I don't eat any fruits that do not have seeds. I stay clear of the seedless watermelons. Like you said people are having dangerous allergic reactions to foods because they are mixing stuff up. I have even heard of them using animal dna for fruits and vegetables. I believe it is extremely unhealthy. I would like to have my own garden. Hopefully, I will be able to soon. My mom's friends son got married in Australia (his wife is from there) she said that they didn't have high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients in their products. I wish USA was like that. Other countries seem to care a lot more about their people than USA does.

Of course, when You have space, for others who are living in an apartment, it is not applicable. It is just a question of awareness, the balance between them.

@Farcha Affordable. The farmers sell their products themselves at stalls.

@MALUSE The problem, now we don't know if it is organic or not, especially farmers.

Yes, it's true that organic is more healthy but the price is really expensive. I have an organic cherry tomato plant in a pot since we don't have space at home. We're planning to have organic leafy veggies as well. This is what we do in order to cut out some food expenses. And we are 100% sure that it's organic. We still consume produce from the conventional way. It's cheap.

@Farcha As of the moment I am not supporting GMO products. It has it's own advantages. But for me I'm not sure what will be the effect of eating GMO products. It may not pose any risk now, but sooner or later it will. Most of my seeds are open pollinated. The seeds where I purchase are from Japanese company. Of course I use local variety as well. Last time I checked GMO seeds are not yet being sold/distributed in my country. How about in your country? Have you ever used one? Is it available there?

With all the additives in today's foods: chemicals, pesticides, hormones and steroids, the levels of diseases have escalated @Farcha . People are having to take every vitamin known to man to help offset and fight the problems. Organic is the only way to go. And as far as the population, China's One-Child-Policy should be world wide. It is ridiculous to have 5, 6, 7 or more children.

This is the big issue how can we feed 7 milliards of the world population, so conventional remains a solution, but we can converge to Organic? Is it possible to feed sufficiently? That's the question. In addition, organic is not affordable for all.

Nice forecast, organic products are much better though they are expensive as you said. It will be nice for United Nations to encourage countries with agricultural facilities to embark on massive production of organic products for future sustaince.
