Organically grown foods are not (trans)genetically modified, meaning they are not what is considered GMOs.

organic foods are naturally grown and genetically modified are grown using special chemicals and such

No, growing food organically has no connection to biotechnology. Biotechnology produces food that is genetically modified. Organic foods are not genetically modified.

Organic foods often do take longer to produce than non-organic foods because of disease susceptibility and the fact that they are not genetically modified (enhanced).

Yes they can, its scientifically proven.

You change your diet from non-organic to organic foods by only drinking and eating products that are labeled as organic without chemicals, genetically modified organisms and preservatives.

Most organic foods compare very favorably to genetically modified foods in nutritional value.

Same idea as free range chicken... It has not been geneticly modified, or forced to grow, it is "wild"...

If it is genetically modified then it is not an organic food. Organic food is naturally grown.

Yes. Genetically modified foods have been studied very little, and can cause a host of unknown side effects. These include cancer, stomach lesions, and hidden allergies.

Some people buy organic chocolate because they want to avoid the consequences of conventional farming. Organic foods are produced without the use of genetically modified organisms, pesticides and other toxic chemicals. Some people buy organic chocolate because they believe that organic foods are healthier.

Yes, organic foods can and may be sprayed with pesticides.Specifically, growing organic foods faces the same challenges of environmental pests and stress as does producing non-organic foods. Some challenges involve the use of pesticides. The difference in the use of such controls as applied to organic food production is the elimination of all non-chemical, non-modified, non-organic, non-synthetic ingredients and the use of animal- and plant-based, natural materials.

You mean non-organic foods. No foods are inorganic (meaning without the element carbon). The general conscious here is that organic foods are grown without the use of genetically modified crops and pesticides that ~may~ have negative effects on our health (like poisons).

Organic foods are generally more expensive than non-organic foods.

People are eating more organic foods for many reasons: to avoid additives and preservatives in non-organic foods, to avoid genetically modified foods, and because they believe organic foods are healthier.

Non organic foods themselves would do no harm to you unless they contain harmful additives and/or preservatives, chemicals from synthetic pesticides that were sprayed on them, etc. It is also possible that non organic foods are genetically modified and the health effects of GMOs are not known, though there is some anecdotal evidence that they can have adverse health effects in animals and people.

Sadly, almost all the food out there is genetically modified(gm). You can find more natural foods by purchasing organic or all natural products, but they are not guaranteed to be gm free.

No, non-organic foods are not necessarily better than organic edibles.Specifically, the term better is personal unless it is qualified -- for example -- in terms of appearance, fragrance, nutrients, and taste. Some consumers prefer the preservability and prices of non-organic foods. Others seek the non-chemical, non-gentically-modified, non-synthetic procedures and processes behind organically-grown edibles.

Non Organic foods are the opposite of Organic foods. Organic foods are produced without GMOs, artificial preservatives and pesticides, while Non Organic foods are grown and produced with GM-Os artificial preservatives and pesticides.

If a food product is labeled 100% organic and is labeled with and USDA Organic seal, it must be completely free of genetically modified products by government regulations. On the other hand, foods that are labeled "Made with Organic Ingredients" or simply "Organic" are not as tightly regulated and can contain GMOs. To be sure your food is GMO-free, buy USDA certified 100% organic food.

There is actually no such thing as genetically modified organics. Organic foods cannot be grown from GMO seeds and the only way it would (and does) contain GMOs is if it is contaminated with them during growth or processing.

Circumstances that may limit organic foods are they are more labor intensive to grow, the shelf life of processed organic foods may be shorter than non-organic foods, and they cost more than non-organic foods.

The laws regarding the labelling of genetically modified foods depend on the country. Most foods that have been genetically modified need to have it stated on the label.

Supposedly they are grown without chemicals or pesticides. There is also the issue of genetically modified foods, which no one even knows yet whether or not they are bad for you. There have been some studies on rats that were fed GMO food and ended up dead. Organic is non-GMO.

Everyone doesn't say organic is better. People who say organic is better believe that because truly organically grown foods are not grown using synthetic fertilizers and pesicides that cause harm to the enviroment and can have harmful effects on human health. They also believe organic is better because organically grown foods are not genetically modified, and they do not believe that the safety of GMOs has been adequately proven. Additionally, organic processed foods use less or no artificial colors or non organic preservatives.

That the one adheres to foods whose inputs and outputs are non-genetically modified and non-synthetically treated and the other tolerates foods which may be subjected to the above-mentioned conditions and which may not be of local or on-site provenance is the difference between an organic and an non-organic diet. An organic diet depends upon local foods whose growing, harvesting, and processing must be on-site whereas a non-organic diet makes no such demands prerequisites to consumption.
