Wealthy food farming for healthy life

Bidita Rahman :
Wealthy food for healthy life means we need that food, which should not in used chemicals or the artificial materials used. Every human and animals need to have good health and gives us the earth in active so that point out the useful food farming for betterment of the earth and lives the creation by creators. Organic food committed to healthy eating to start a healthy eating for healthiest life style. Beyond eating list more fruits, vegetables, whole gains, and good fats needed. We should concern about the sustainability if food and nutrition. Organic refers to the way agricultural products are grown and precede. Specific requirements must be met the maintained in the labelled product ‘organic.’
Organic crops must be grown in safe soil, have no modifications must remain separate from orthodox products. Farmers are not sanction to use synthetic pesticides, bio-engineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers. Organic livestock must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal-by-products.
Organic foods provide a variety of benefits. Some studies show that organic foods have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally grown counterparts do. In addition, people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. In addition:
Organic produce contains fewer pesticides
Pesticides are chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides.
These chemicals are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain in the food we eat.
F Children’s and fetuses are most vulnerable to pesticide exposure because their immune systems, bodies, and brains are still developing. Exposure an early age can cause developmental delays, behavioural disorders.
F Pregnant women are more vulnerable due to the added stress pesticides put on their already taxed organs. In addition, pesticides are passed from mother to child in the womb, as well as through breast milk. Some exposures can cause delayed effects on the nervous system, even years after the initial exposure.
F Organic methods such as rotating crops to build soil fertility and naturally raising animals helps to promote biodiversity, which returns health to each species. Organic farms are havens to wildlife, so our ecosystems are improved, as well.
F Organic farming promotes soils that are teaming with life and rich in micro nutrients which can be used for decades to grow crops virtually year round in many parts of the world.
F Organically grown products are free from harmful chemicals, artificial flavours and preservatives that ultimately cost consumers money when they purchase non-organically grown products. You can always taste the difference between organically grown and conventionally grown products.
F Eating organic foods may in fact, reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes and cancer for individuals who abstain from consuming products produced by conventional farming methods. Biochemist are continually researching the inherent benefits of organically grown foods and discovering the consequences consuming products loaded with toxins and chemicals which, until recently, have only begun to be introduced to humans. The fact is, you ultimately are what you eat.
F It’s not just imaginary: organic food actually can taste better than its conventionally farm-raised counterpart. One scientific reason for this is that some organic produce has lower nitrate contents than its non-organic version. This leads to sweeter-tasting fruits that also have been shown to contain higher levels of antioxidants. So it’s not really all in your head. Organic farming can lead to better flavour.
F Because organic farming eschews chemical fertilizers and pesticides, it reduces non-renewable energy use. It takes considerable amounts of fossil fuel to create the synthetic fertilizers and pesticides used in conventional farming. What’s more, organic farming increases the amount of carbon returned to the soil, which in turn lessens the impact on the greenhouse effect and global warming.
F The runoff of chemicals from conventional farming seeps into groundwater supplies, and groundwater pollution has become a serious issue. Soil itself is a natural water filter. Organic farming enriches the soil, which not only removes
F The risk of groundwater pollution but can also act as a way to rehabilitate soil in areas where damage to water supplies has already occurred.
F It is said that every culture shares one thing: Food. It is a universal celebration. Organic farming celebrates healthfulness and biodiversity. It removes damaging chemical toxins from our environment and our food. That is something to promote and foster!
Organic food is often fresher
Fresh food tastes better. Organic food is usually fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives that make it last longer. Organic produce is often (but not always, so watch where it is from) produced on smaller farms near where it is sold.
Organic farming is better for the environment. Organic farming practices reduce pollution (air, water, soil), conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without pesticides is also better for nearby birds and small animals as well as the people who harvest our food.
Organically raised animals are NOT given antibiotics, growth hormones, or fed animal by-products. The use of antibiotics in conventional meat production helps create antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. This means that when someone gets sick from these strains they will be less responsive to antibiotic treatment. Not feeding animal by-products to other animals reduces the risk of mad cow disease (BSE). In addition, the animals are given more space to move around and access to the outdoors, both of which help to keep the animals healthy.
Basic steps of organic farming
Organic farming approach involves following five principles:
1. Conversion of land from conventional management to organic management
2. Management of the entire surrounding system to ensure biodiversity and sustainability of the system.
3. Crop production with the use of alternative sources of nutrients such as crop rotation, residue management, organic manures and biological inputs.
4. Management of weeds and pests by better management practices, physical and cultural means and by biological control system
5. Maintenance of live stock in tandem with organic concept and make them an integral part of the entire system
Organic farming and locally grown produce
Instead of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, organic farmers rely on biological diversity in the field to naturally reduce habitat for pest organisms. Organic farmers also purposefully maintain and replenish the fertility of the soil.
Organic produce:
No pesticides
F Grown with natural fertilizers (manure, compost).
F Weeds are controlled naturally (crop rotation, hand weeding, mulching, and tilling).
F Insects are controlled using natural methods (birds, good insects
Conventionally grown produce
Pesticides used
F Grown with synthetic or chemical fertilizers.
F Weeds are controlled with chemical herbicides.
F Insecticides are used to manage pests and disease.
Organic meat and dairy
Organic meat, dairy products, and eggs are produced from animals that are fed organic feed and allowed access to the outdoors. They must be kept in living conditions that accommodate the natural behaviour of the animals. Ruminants must have access to pasture. Organic livestock and poultry may not be given antibiotics, hormones, or medications in the absence of illness; however, they may be vaccinated against disease.
Use of parasiticide (a substance used to destroy parasites) is strictly regulated. Livestock diseases and parasites are controlled primarily through preventative measures such as rotational grazing, balanced diet, sanitary housing, and stress reduction
Organic Vs Conventional meat and dairy
Regulations governing meat and dairy farming vary from country to country. In the Bangladesh the major differences include:
Organic meat and dairy
No antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides are given to animals
F Livestock are given all organic feed.
F Disease is prevented with natural methods such as clean housing, rotational grazing, and a healthy diet.
F Livestock and milking cows must graze on pasture for at least four months a year, while chickens must have freedom of movement, fresh air, direct sunlight, and access to the outside.
Conventionally raised meat and dairy:
Typically given antibiotics, hormones and feed grown with pesticides
F Livestock are given growth hormones for faster growth.
F Antibiotics and medications are used to prevent livestock disease.
F Livestock may or may not have access to the outdoors
Enjoying the benefit of fish without harmful side effects
Fish is low in saturated fat and can be a good source of high-quality protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients. Yet common toxins such as mercury are also found in fish. What does this mean? How much is okay?
Which fish are safe?
Each year dangerous quantities of mercury are emitted into the air (an aspect of widespread industrial pollution). When it rains, this pollution goes into our lakes and oceans where it contaminates the fish and shellfish that live there. Eating fish contaminated with mercury, a poison that interferes with the brain and nervous system can cause serious health problems. The top predators, such as sharks, contain the highest levels of these contaminants. Nursing mothers, pregnant women, and young children have the highest risk, so should avoid all large fish (shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish, etc).
In recent years there has been a huge decline in many species of fish, caused by unsustainable fishing and farming practices.
This means that if changes are not made soon, many wild populations of fish may become extinct.
In the end of the thing is real world should be made by us by through farming effective plantation of organic food. We must know the famous proverb is that Health is wealth. Health is good every success will be touched by this planet.
