Farming, growing, and buying organic essentially means eating foods that are produced without harsh chemicals such as pesticides, GMOs (genetically modified organisms) or synthetic fertilizers. This applies to vegetables, fruits, natural & organic wine, as well as beauty and personal care brands. The term also refers to animals used for meat, poultry, or eggs that are raised without growth hormones or antibiotics. Organic farmers also practice sustainable methods of farming that benefit the environment. With a greater care by farmers, organic groceries and menu items in Singapore tend to be higher. A way to filter what to buy organic is to look at the dirty dozen and clean fifteen food lists.
