A quick word about organic food v conventional food in an article from www.grinningplanet.com
Spreading the Organic Wordby Shane Heaton, Organic Food News Quarterly
A growing number of consumers, and especially those dealing with chronic illness, are switching to organic food. A key motivation for consumers doing this is a simple belief that it's better for them. But is it true that there are health benefits to eating organic food? Official food agencies around the world are unanimous in claiming there is no evidence of a nutritional difference. Yet a more careful and thorough review of the science comparing organic and non-organic food reveals that, collectively, the available evidence does indeed support the consumer belief and claims by the organic industry that their food is safer, more nutritious, and better for you than non-organic food.
Now that we know a little more about organic foods and the nutritional benefits they can provide, along with the knowledge that these foods have not been exposed to the herbicides and pesticide's which conventional food have, it would be a fair assumption to say that a switch to organic food alone would set you on a path to better health.
