eating organic reduces your risk of cancer

The organic food debate rages? Is it really good for you or just a waste of money?

According to a large, just published study, it’s worth the money: eating organic is very good for you. Why, because it significantly reduces your risk of cancer.

The study followed 68,946 adults for an average of 4.5 years. It kept track of how often they consumed organic foods, including fruit, vegetables, soy products, dairy products, meat, fish, eggs, grains, legumes and several other types of foods.

The results were impressive. People who ate the most organic food had 25% less risk of developing cancer than people who ate the least. There was a 34% reduced risk of post-menopausal breast cancer and a 76% reduced risk of lymphoma.

An earlier meta-analysis of 343 studies also found that organic crops contain 19-69% more antioxidants than nonorganic, depending on the antioxidant.

Organic farming is not only better for you, it’s also better for the environment.
