A nice topic to clear all the myths and doubts about chemicals, Organic vs Inorganic etc etc. . Chemicals are chemicals, In my opinion I dont see any difference in the molecular structure.
But there is a catch. My personal experience is A scotch is a scotch and only those who have tasted it will find the difference when compared to IMFL. Right ?? So do organically grown plants enjoy its food and live happily to produce ?? No idea !!
The simplest structure used by plants is H2O ie Water. Now how can one say which is organic, the rain water or water coming out of hydrogen combustion or H2O released as a by product when 2 chemicals are combined. Confusing to me, but natural stream water has lots and lots of dissolved minerals and off all, it tastes better than distilled water !!
I am really confused.
The reason being I happen to attend a 2 day Bee Keeping course at GKVK. Bangalore. Nice insight into the activities of Bees with some practical hands on knowledge. Now here is the confusing debate on Organic Vs Inorganic Honey. Yes it has penetrated here also !!.
Most of the commercial Apiaries use Bees primarily as pollinators and Honey being the byproduct. This is true world wide, where 1000’s of bee hive boxes are migrated 1000 of miles for pollinating 1000 of acres of mono crops.
Now in india this is hardly done. A few have come out with artificial flavored honey. How it is done ? Cans and cans of sugar syrup are placed near the hives. These are added with flavors like vanilla , Mango , Orange , coke & Pepsi , including Niligirs oil etc etc.
Voila !! you have honey with these flavors, Mind you this costs upwards of Rs 500 per KG. Now is this organic honey or Inorganic Honey ?? Bees simply are not bothered, Since they want to conserve energy, they suck this syrup kept near hives and store it as honey. But this honey is sold as naturally flavored honey. Behind it is this trick. !! We have even corrupted the Bees !!
In the debate of Organic Vs Inorganic, why no one is raising the topic of Hybrids, the F1s and grafting ??. Again here man is playing god with primary aim being output. Crossing species which naturally would not have occurred.
Gurus can pitch in their thoughts, so that we all can be benefited. The more we delve into it the more confusing isnt it ?
