Organic Food: Matter Vs Money
Updated: Jun 22, 2021
Organic Food is bland, boring and unaffordable. Well, that is as wrong as saying Chellam Sir does not know.
Jokes apart, organic food can be as interesting and totally worth the money you spend. Chataka Tales is proof of that. It all really comes down to the basics. So let's talk break it down.
What is organic food?
It's genetically unmodified food that is grown on farms without the use of any harmful pesticides or chemicals to increase crop yield. This makes it healthy and more natural.
Is organic food expensive?
Usually yes. But there is no hard and fast rule. Given the fact that an organic farmer's yield / produce is not as high or as protected from natural causes, prices for organic foods tend to be on higher side compared with inorganic or easily available regular foods.

Is it worth the extra money?
That depends on how you view life and how much you value the life of a human being. In this particular case let's assume that the human beings are you and your family.
The question is do you mind paying a a little extra to stay away from chemicals, pesticides that can cause fatal diseases like cancer? We do not want to frighten you, so read this post to understand the issue better.
A little perspective can go a long way
As humans, we have evolved from an average life expectancy of just 34 years to 70+. Here is a quick look at how the United States of America has done this over years:
This transition between 1880 and 2000 has involved overcoming several health related challenges for the entire population.
Considering that the cost of medical care is growing exponentially and is set to rise further, the future can be brighter only if we live well and eat well. Organic food is the mantra for doing that.
So, if you add 5 years to your life by eating food at a 25% higher cost, may be it is worth all the money. Add a bit of imagination (it costs nothing) and voilà! Your awesome affordable Organic food is ready for eating.
Chellam Sir would know that. Do you?
