Scientists reviewed 343 studies to see if Organic Food is better for you. Here’s what they found out | Wellness | Scoop.it

Go organic This settles the debate over organic foods once and for all!
Are organic foods really healthier than non-organic foods? Researchers from Newcastle University in England have reviewed and conducted meta-analysis on 343 peer-reviewed scientific studies in an effort to find out if organic foods contained greater nutritional value than conventional foods.


The results will probably shock some, but will confirm what many people already knew; organic foods are indeed much healthier for human consumption than ‘conventional’ foods. Image credit: AP

Organic food really is worth the extra expense. 

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, July 30, 2014 1:49 PM

The most important difference found was that organic foods contain a much higher amount of antioxidants than conventional crops. Antioxidants prevent oxidation in the body which combats certain diseases and cancers. 

Hugo Monteiro's curator insight, July 31, 2014 1:47 PM

I still don't know when and why did *food* started to be called "organic food" and "processed food" started to be called "food". I still wonder...

 

Regarding if it's healthier or not, I think the problem is with people's IQ...let's pose this question: does Nature makes more healthier food than man!? I mean....For how many millions years in advance!?
