Why should you go organic? Is it just a status symbol or is it really better for us? Is it really better for the environment? Such questions seem to be lingering in the minds of consumers who would like to do the right thing for their health and for the environment.
While the classic definition of organic living may not be appealing to the average consumer, the need of the hour calls for a revolutionary change in the consumer's perception of chemical farming. India saw a revolution in the 60s popularly called the Green Revolution which many scholars thought changed the fate of the Indian farmer. It welcomed about immediate changes such as high volume of agricultural production thanks to the high yielding varieties seeds and chemical pesticides. But the boom has turned out to be a bane 50 years later. Scientists say that these pesticides have a high content of neurotoxins. Ironically, these chemicals were used to a toxic nerve agent during World War II, but since there was no longer a need for them in warfare, it was adopted to kill pests. The revolution had a host of other harmful effects on the environment, it has caused air, water and land pollution.
These powerful adverse images that the Green Revolution thought about calls for a change in the way we are living. It's high time that we eat real food and not pesticide factories. It's high time we go organic. It's to think beyond to reach out to the future generations and to make our planet a better place to live.
