This paper presents the opposition between industrial and organic food. The method used focuses on an extensive documentation based on statistical data, documentary films, books and articles that provide us various information about the devastating effect of chemicals used by the food industry. Most of the documents used are based on case studies and concrete examples that condemn the current food industry, which "forces" the population of the globe to consume artificial food, (lacking vitamins and minerals), which, according to specialists, "keeps us alive but hurries the end". In order to change this cruel reality, a growing number of activists (physicians, economists, biologists, chemists, etc.) fight to stop the food chaos created by the current food industry, seeking and offering viable solutions for protecting the environment and the public health.
