With the onset of commercial agriculture, the focus of plant production shifted from quality to quantity. The soil in which our food is grown is nothing but a concoction of insecticides, weedicides, pesticides, artificial nutrients, and minerals. The plant that becomes our food is subjected not only to numerous chemicals in the different stages of its life cycle but also genetic modification at the cellular level. Imagine eating something with such a heavy dose of chemical influx. Sadly, this is no imagination but a stark reality.
The food we eat affects not only our physical health but also our mental and emotional well being and hence plays a major part in how we lead our life. When so much is stake should we even compromise with the quality of our food? Should anything be consumed at the expense of our lives?
