Yes, products that are organic are actually beneficial to individuals, and society as a whole. When farmers grow organically, they are not running pesticides into the environment. When people eat organic foods, they are avoid the consumption of pesticides that could lead to health problems, which could be a burden on the health care system.
Many companies who grow organic food still do things to the food that is not natural. They spray pesticides and inject some type of growth hormones to mass produce. The best way to make sure your food is truly organic is grow it yourself. Don't uses pesticides and just let the food grow naturally.
There isn't really much evidence to prove that organic food is more beneficial than food processed through traditional ways. I think that the only thing organic food offers is the ease of mind that some people are eating food that are free of harmful pesticides or drugs. I do not see anything else good about it.
Organic food is not as beneficial as the people who pay higher prices to obtain it might think that it is. The food itself is no healthier (and in some cases, less healthy) than the food that was not grown organically. Also some research has shown that the environmental impact is not signifigantly lower from organic foods.
Nutritionally speaking, studies have shown that conventionally grown foods are just as nutritious as organic foods. That being said, people may still be concerned about the pesticides that are on conventionally grown food, and what impact they may have on their health. The amount of pesticides is below what is expected to be dangerous, but we don't know the cumulative impact. So, in regards to pesticide residue, it's possible that organic produce is better.
