The world of 'natural' and organic products is a very complex one, and it is always worth reading labels properly rather than assuming that buzzwords like 'natural' really do mean natural. The following are two of the most important considerations - Benefits of organic and natural for the environment and Benefits of organic and natural for health.
Additional reasons to buy organic food include the fact that many people believe it tastes better than non-organic, and that it is better for animal welfare as it requires that livestock have plenty of space, and are fed a diet as natural as possible and which is GMO free.
These days, buying organic is relatively easy. However, it may well cost you a bit more. Also, be aware that a lot of the organic produce we see on supermarket shelves has been imported from abroad. Always look for the Soil Association mark on UK grown organic products and don't forget organic doesn't necessarily just apply to food. Many textiles are now made from organic, unbleached cotton, hemp or similar, so look out for organic fabrics in clothes shops too. Always check thoroughly that claims of being 'natural', 'organic' or 'non-toxic' are backed and not just a 'green wash' and pretext for a price hike. Stripped back to the basics, most products are 'natural' in origin but may have been heavily processed, or may even be a synthesised and modified replica of a naturally occurring compound.
