While it is true that chemicals are useful to eliminate pestering pests to vegetations and increase productions, it is somewhat a proven fact also that they generate illnesses to human body. Side effects of such inorganic products are inevitable occurrence. There are two types of food available in the market, and they are the conventionally grown foods and organic foods.

The floodgates of technologies are opened to seize lifestyles of people. Actually, we are enjoying it because it made our lives comfortable. However, much is said about the impacts of machineries and new technologies to our planet. Some of them are disastrous to our Mother Nature. To pre-empt additional disaster, efforts were made tobridge it.

As a consumer, you have the option on what to buy. You carry the burden of good discretion now. Are you supporting organic products for your ecological concerns or for CGs because you are concerned about your family's budget? Your pick is your opinion …
