A thirty year side by side study of organic versus industrial farming techniques was made by the Rodale Institute with the following important facts:
Profits for organic farms were over 250% larger than for large agribusiness and
farm yields per acre were approximately the same and
organic farm workers hired were generally greater per acre and
organic farms are 45% more efficient energy users with production efficiency being 28 % larger and
they are approximately 20% more drought tolerant and
have improved soil quality and
don’t use toxic chemicals suchas pesticides and herbicides and lopsided fertilizers.
The most revealing fact is that we spend about 10% of our income on food and 16% on health care and it used to be the reverse percentages.
We are spending less on food and more on medical expenses because we are so unhealthy from eating the cheap, polluted, over processed food of large agribusiness!!!!!!
