Whenever possible, buy organically grown fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables vary in quality depending upon the soil on which they are grown and the methods that are used in growing them. Present-day intensive farming practices involve the use of artificial fertilisers and
health-endangering chemical sprays, and while this type of farming provides a much greater yield per acre, it results in a sacrifice of quality.
Organically grown fruits and vegetables, raised by a method that strives to put back into the soil by natural means that which is taken out of it, thus obviating the need for chemical fertilisers, are gaining increasing favor among health followers. While the supply of these food products at present is extremely limited, they should be given preference whenever possible. For this reason, many health-minded people are now raising their own products.
