Is organic food better for animal reproduction?



  1. 0 Votes

    Living near farms where pesticides are used has shown significant changes of reproductive problems including infertility and miscarriage in women, and lower sperm count in men (which also increases the change of miscarriage). In one study on men were found to be 10 times more likely to be infertile who work with pesticides, and women who live near crops that use pesticides have a 40-120% increased risk of miscarriage. As far as eating organic food, the pesticide levels found on conventional foods is much lower than those associated with living near agriculture, however they effects would be the same but in much smaller doses, with much lower percentages of risk. So overall, eating organic is better for reproduction.
