An open debate on organic food

Organic food that includes farm produce, milk and meat are becoming popular among the consumers every year. The sale of organic food now accounts for almost $26 billion per year which is up from $1 billion some few decades back. The reasons for the popularity of organic food include potential health benefits and environmental impact. Despite the popularity of organic food among the masses there is a debate going on whether organic food is better for our health and is worth to its higher price in the United States. The studies carried on the aspect of health benefits of organic food is quiet unclear.

The controversy once again raised its head when The American Academy of Pediatrics, this week highlighted some aspects related with the supposed benefits of eating organic food but said that it is not clear whether parents are actually getting the healthier food by spending extra amount on these foods.
