Are Organic Foods Healthier Than Conventional Foods?

Postby DietNewbie » Sat Aug 21, 2010 1:38 pm

I read from MSNBC that according to a new research review, there were no strong evidence that organic foods bring nutrition-related health benefits than conventional foods.

Here are a few quote from the article Organic foods may not really be healthier

A "disappointingly small" number of well-designed studies have looked at whether organic foods may have health benefits beyond their conventional counterparts', according to the review, by researchers with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Health in the UK.

Moreover, they found, what studies have been done have largely focused on short-term effects of organic eating — mainly antioxidant activity in the body — rather than longer-term health outcomes. And most of the antioxidant studies failed to find differences between organic and conventional diets.


Most of us believe that organic foods are healthier because they were made without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, etc, several studies just proved that may not be true at all.

Yes, organic food is helthier than conventional foods as well as very beneficial to the environment also. Conventional agriculture using chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth while organic farming uses animal manure and compost to fertilize the soil. Organic foods are tastes better, more juicy and full-flavored as compared to conventional foods.

What are the benifits of eating all organic food?
I know that a lot of people are turning to all organic diets. Is organic food really more nutritious than normal food? Why is non organic food bad for you? Do YOU follow an all organic diet? Why or why not?

Structured substance is healthier than schematic foods as recovered as rattling good to the surround also. Stereotypical business using chemical fertilizers to encourage pass ontogeny while structured farming uses fish like scatter and compost to fecundate the earth. Provender foods are tastes outdo, writer profitable and full-flavored as compared to schematic foods.

Natural thing are always better than un-natural things and are always beneficial than artificial foods, products or things whatever they are.
In short organic foods are much better and healthier than conventional foods.

It is important to understand the difference between organic and conventional foods. Organic simply means that the farmer used traditional ways of growing the crop. For the most part, they have the same vitamins.
