Although organic foods may be the answer to solving a number of environmental, societal, and nutritional issues that are prevalent in our world today, many people do not understand what the term “organic” means and its implications for our future as an intelligent species. Recent surveys show that up to thirty-five percent of consumers would not purchase organic foods even if they were the same price and as readily available as their conventional counterparts (Duram 99).This statistic proves that people do not understand what it means for food to be organic and do not know the major negative impact that non organic foods have on the world around us. In attempts to breakdown any misconceptions of organic foods, this text will provide the true meaning of organic and the adverse affects on global issues from not growing organically, justify the costs of organic foods, and provide clear examples as to how some one as impoverished as a college student can live an organic lifestyle. Finally, proof will be given that the “deals” given at fast food restaurants prove their product’s lack of quality.
