Introduction

Read through the following text and look up any vocabulary you are not sure about before answering the questions.

Organic food is an important part of a healthy diet. It’s grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers, and it doesn’t contain any genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Organic food also tends to have more nutrients than conventional produce.

Organic food is becoming more popular every year, but there are some challenges to growing it. For example, it takes longer to produce organic fruits and vegetables than conventional ones. This means that there may not always be enough supply to meet demand.

Another challenge is that the cost of organic food can be more expensive than non-organic foods. This is because it costs more money for farmers to grow and sell their products without using pesticides or fertilizers. As a result, many people say that they can’t afford organic food when they shop at their local grocery stores or farmers’ markets.
