What is Organic
 
What "organic" really means. The term "organic" can be confusing and often times, it sounds like a health fad that will come and pass.
Organic refers to a crop or animal raised without the use of pesticides or antibiotics such as [Only registered and activated users can see links.

The concept is a great one and really helpful for communities who aren't as close to sources of food, but the problem is it isn't natural. Over time, continuous consumption of unnaturally raised crops or animals can have negative effects on our nutrition. Many of these chemicals or hormones decrease the amount of nutrients therefore making fruits, vegetables and meats less healthy.
Not all fruits and vegetables are grown with harmful additives or pesticides. Sometimes certain produce isn't sprayed as heavily with pesticides. Additionally, fruits and vegetables with thicker skins are generally much better at keeping harmful chemicals out of the food inside.

Organic word is very popular and it is use mostly in organic industry like organic farming, organic fertilizer etc. In the most basic sense, organic means grown or raised naturally.

In its simplest sense, organic means grown or raised naturally. cultivated plants, this means that no chemicals (eg pesticides), sewage sludge, radiation, or genetic engineering used in the product. Organic animal products like eggs, milk and meat, is also an example: cows and chickens are not given antibiotics or growth hormones. (If the livestock are concerned, are, of course, give antibiotics, but their organic classification has been withdrawn.)

Organic chemistry is a branch of chemistry, involving studies of organic carbon compounds.An organic chemical is any chemical which contains a carbon-hydrogen bond.

Organic simply means chemicals containing carbon. You are organic, so are most pesticides. The use of "organic" by the food industry is simply a marketing gimmick intended to hide the fact they are actually practicing pre-industrial era agriculture.

The cost of Organic food is not cheap.

Organic molecules contain both carbon and hydrogen. Though many organic chemicals also contain other elements, it is the carbon-hydrogen bond that defines them as organic. Organic chemistry defines life. Just as there are millions of different types of living organisms on this planet, there are millions of different organic molecules, each with different chemical and physical properties. There are organic chemicals that make up your hair, your skin, your fingernails, and so on. The diversity of organic chemicals is due to the versatility of the carbon atom.
Organic chemistry is that branch of chemistry that deals with the structure, properties, and reactions of compounds that contain carbon.
