by | Breast Cancer, Dietary Risk Factors

Eating organically may reduce the risk of all cancers, especially postmenopausal breast cancer and lymphomas. According to JAMA, promoting organic food consumption could be a promising preventive strategy against cancer.

Organically farmed foods are less toxic than conventionally produced foods because organic methods restrict the use of pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, irradiation, industrial solvents, and synthetic food additives. Organically farmed foods also bear slightly to modestly higher nutritional content.

 Organics May Also Reduce the Risks of Allergy and Obesity

According to the National Institute of Health, NIH, organic food production has several documented and potential benefits for human health, and wider application of these production methods would benefit human health.

Cleaner Foods. Cleaner Diets. Cleaner Bills of Health.

Organic Foods Are Less Toxic

Organic foods can reduce our exposure to:

  • pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, irradiation, industrial solvents,
  • artificial colors, flavors and preservatives and
  • GMO foods, ingredients and contamination

Organic Foods Are More Nourishing

Compared to conventionally-raised foods, organically-raised foods contain:

  • modestly higher contents of antioxidants in fruits and vegetables and
  • higher contents of omega-3 fatty acids in dairy products and meats

Farming’s Effects on the Environment

According to Wiki, “from an environmental perspective, fertilizing, overproduction, and the use of pesticides in conventional farming may negatively affect ecosystems, biodiversity, groundwater, and drinking water supplies. These environmental and health issues are intended to be minimized or avoided in organic farming.”
