Organic milk has more antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, CLA and vitamins, and organic tomatoes have a greater antioxidant content since nitrogen-rich chemical fertilisers are not used in the growing

There are no harmful pesticides used. More often than not, conventional produce is sprayed with synthetic chemicals to deter insects and protect the crops. However, this can result in chemical residue on the plant that cannot be removed, even by washing. Organic farms use more natural methods of deterring insects such as selecting disease-resistant crops, insect traps, and beneficial micro-organisms. Using no pesticides on farms is also beneficial for the health of farmworkers, for who constant exposure to chemicals can be harmful.
