The key drivers for the global organic food market are increasing per capita income, growing awareness among consumers for health and food safety, emerging concerns for the environmental issues, major lifestyle changes among the younger age-group. The presence of pesticides in food products results in a number of diseases like asthma, birth defects, cancer, reproductive dysfunction, diabetes, autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases and much more. The organic food his thus been grown without the usage of genetically modified toxic chemicals, organisms, fertilizers or pesticides. Moreover, Organic farming is mainly dependent on animal and green manure for the fertilization of crop; water-soluble mineral fertilizers are usually not approved. Compared to this, the mineral phosphorus fertilizer used in convention farming contributes to increased cadmium concentrations in agricultural soils in long run and this poses a high risk to human health because the food is the dominant route of human exposure to cadmium in non-smokers that may impair lung function and enhance the risk of lung cancer. Thus, the consumption of organic food is mainly considered to be a safer option for traditional food.
