But it's 100% NATURAL! You want some?" "Hell yeah give it all to me I Always hated eating more for the same money and helping starving populations grow more foods"

    Organic food, to a certain extent, doesn't mess with ecosystems. While biodynamic is better, organic farms are better than chemical for 3 things: 1. Pollinators like bees 2. Sustainability of the soil nutrients 3. Helpful microbes in the soil

    You failed to mention of the most important arguments pro organic food - it is way mlre sustainable conventional farming over long period of time depletes nuritents in the soil as well as its quality in the western world this is just a mild problem but over long periods of time even the hig quality european/ american soil will be depleted organic agriculture doesnt deplete the soil instead it makes it richer in nuritants and quality thus organic agriculture is very important in countries with poor soil quality ie afrika and south america unfortunally western companies dont care for the quality of that soil Also your video fails to differentiate between organic labels every down side you discussed is only admissable in low level organic labes most high quality labels donate to developmental countries to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants - buying those kabels is the ethical choice!

    .... What if we move farming to space, and allow future colonies to produce the food needed to sustain the human race? Just like how we should move factories, and refineries to space to decrease pollution. Besides our colonies would benefit from it as well. With those releasing the load of earth, just a little bit, or just enough. Star ship, and super heavy booster should be ready by 2021, or 2022, and the tickets would be around +/- $100,000. So, we can basically start moving to space around next year, or the year after that. Then you have... Why not build green sky scrapers with roof top gardens next to the air conditioner system? Or something, and something is better than nothing... Also, why not grow your own food? That's healthy as well, and depending on the scenario it's also cheeper.

    I don't understand why he is answering the question, is Organic food healthier? People eat organic food, not for more nutrients, but because they are scared that pesticides are doing irreparable damage to their bodies. The question should have been "Is eating excessive amounts of pesticides leading us to have more health problems than normal unaltered food?"

    Check out the MSDS pages of a organic pesticide vs a synthetic pesticide. There is a vast difference. The video talks about produce being tested for pesticide residue and that said produce fell below tolerable levels of residue. What denotes a tolerable level Tolerances will vary person to person. Synthetic pesticides have only been in the environment for X amount of years and their true long term effects are still unknown.

    This video starts off by saying that there are different definitions of organic and then goes on to compare organic versus non-organic without telling us which version of organic they (or the studies quoted) are using. The conclusions are therefore dubious.

    Fertilisers and pesticides run off in to nearby waterways and cause algal blooms which endanger the biodiversity of the ponds, pools, etc. Also pesticides and fertilisers degrade the soil structure and make it uninhabitable for soil organisms, thus depleting the soil. After the land is left to fallow (for just one year), crops are grown again, whether rotated or not, this fallowing does not replete the soil, and certainly with the intensive use of fertilisers, and pesticides, it eventually becomes useless. It gets worse and worse, and farmers produce less and less, and buy land elsewhere, or make it elsewhere, to duplicate their practice, continually producing desserts along their path. There are massive environmental implications considering fertilisers and pesticides, and even organic agriculture , that which never uses fertilisers nor pesticides. All practices of agriculture expose the soil to the sun, to the wind, to the rain, all without plants above, after harvest, cause desertification which makes the soil uninhabitable for soil organisms, and causes the soil to dry, it becomes a dessert. The soil stores the largest biomass of life, I think, besides the sea. There are more living species in the soil that anywhere on land, and these organisms sustain the life above. Farming practices such as permaculture sustain these organisms, for the practice does not disturb the soil, and aims to support as much biodiversity as possible. And thus the soil organisms in the trillions break down nutrients, converting them through many conversions through many organisms, they eventually feed the plants, and in turn the plants feed the soil, with leaves and the organic matter they produce, that returns to the soil. The greater the diversity of soil organisms the better the soil. Great soils have soil molecules that have high surface areas and high porosity, they bind together to form bundles, and these bundles are not formed with conventional agricultural practice, organic or otherwise. Soil organisms are imperitive to a sustainable soil network that supports the biodiversity above, and the biodiversity below. The better the soil the more efficient. Nutrients are made available in a good soil, via the use of the bacteria, arthropods, nematodes and mycelia. These organisms together break down plant waste, feed off of it, and convert it to food the plants can feed on, all while organism are fed to organisms within the soil, and are as well converted in such away that plants can feed. Mycelium, which are fungi that are spread throughout a living soil, have a ginormous surface area. They have threads that reach further down, and further away than roots of plants. These threads feed the roots with nutrients and water, and in return are fed with sugar. These threads die, as do many root systems, even tree roots. roots die and new. ones and newer ones take their place, and whether dead dying or newly formed, soil organisms are eating them, breaking them down, converting them, for them to be fed back. This is a system that is self sustainable. This is not what happens in agriculture. Agriculture is not self sustaining, and destroys the native biodiversity of this planet, feeds a growing consumer of its industry, it needs depleting, and the population needs to deplete with it to ensure maxium species rescued

      Obviously permaculture is impractical at this scale. And the most pressing environmental factor is that of the meat industry. Perhaps with all of this land, grown sustainably with permaculture, there might be enough? The biggest problem is the consumer, and the growing consumer need. Humans will be asking for their rights when the world becomes a furnace. We cannot support a growing population. It is insane. What gives us the right to be stupid again and again, and again, and to be amass with stupidity. The cost of fueling our growth is killing everything. There will be famine. What I want is for the biodiversity of this planet, not to deplete. People are depleting it. What do humans want? They want more, more technology, more food, more roads, more crap. The industrial age has littered this planet, and indocrinated a consumer population, and it continues to reek havok without avail.

    I've been eating organic for almost 7 years. No matter what anyone says, I know it makes a big difference on health. It changed my health in so many different ways physically and mentally. I felt way better after making the switch. I was truly shocked of how much of a difference it had on my energy and clarity. I know it can be expensive. But if you truly care about health it is worth it. Another good way to try it is growing your own organic food. Or just your local farmers market.

    You forgot the taste, organic tastes great, what you call "conventional" almost has no taste. If I eat some of the "conventional" fruits my throat itches, no problem at all with organics. Give me an ugly lumpy tomato from the local market anyday, over the small shiny round one from the store. Edit: Today I went to get groceries and I thought ok, generic food might be bland but Kurzegesagt said they have same nutrition, maybe a bit less antioxidants. So I bought those big ass carrots instead of nice small organic ones thinking it doesn't matter, they're gonna be cooked in a soup. Now I have smelly carrots in my soup...

    However, how much land we need also depends on what we want to eat. Vegetarian, seasonal, local and organic is a good combo because it needs relatively little land and takes relatively good care of biodiversity. There is something better though: If agriculture is not just organic, but regenerative, we can restore soil, take better care of ecosytems and sequester atmospheric carbon all at the same time (!). And let's not forget that buying directly from small farmers is crucial to empowering local communities and economies, shrinking the carbon footprint, protecting rural areas and making societies more equitable. I'm disappointed in (otherwise awesome) kurzgesagt for having made an x vs. y video when agriculture+ecology+climate+diet is such a complex issue where we need to design synergistic practices across scales. So, the advice that benefits us in the short and long term is: vegetarian, seasonal, local, regenerative, small.

    Can we just agree that environmental issues go far beyond climate? Bio diversity loss and soil erosion are simply things that „conventional food“ does not address. In fact, both are talked about way too little.

    This video really glossed over the "eco-toxicity" element.. as well as several other elements. I worked on an Organic farm for 6 years and I can say first hand it was MASSIVELY less toxic to the surrounding environment. The only pesticide we ever used was neem oil and it very small quantities on targeted small areas, while surrounding conventional farms would be spraying glyphosate on huge mono crop areas multiple times a year. You cannot over look the affect that has on the immediate and surrounding areas, it creates runoff that affects the creeks and streams as well as every other animal or insect on that land. It causes health issues for the workers who have to work in those fields. Our compost was from horses and cows within the same area. We used tractors for tilling and occasional compost spreading, everything else was done by hand. Soil wasn't left exposed, we would cover crop in the winter. The impact was not even comparable to conventional practices. Buy LOCAL and buy organic.

    Great job from industrials to make so many people think that organic is not better than conventional... You guys can keep eating conventional, I'll stick with organic. Besides, the impact of conventional agriculture on the environment is hugely understated, we are simply annihilating our environment... Globalization is sure a big problem, but it is a completely different issues than the organic / conventional debate.

    Very vague explanation and no numbers at all, although this video mentions studies. This video here is no more than an opinion without mentioning any factual numbers.

    I think a lot of the stigma originated with “organic” being seen as synonymous with “healthy” while GMO is seen as artificial, toxic, and/or harmful when that isn’t necessarily the case.

    Thank you for making this video! It annoys me to no end how some people treat organic food as if it's a magic bullet and look down on those who don't eat organic and try to push their ideologies onto others. It frustrates me too how grocery stores (looking at you, Whole Foods) charge exorbitant prices and basically scam people into buying organic food because it's "healthier" and "better for the environment".

      not just bees, but flying insects in general (or even all the fauna). Several studies have actually reported up to 80% decline in flying insect biomass in 20-30 years in Europe.
