New Study Says Organic Produce Is Indeed Healthier Than Conventional

May 21, 2011: 09:59 PM EST
British researchers who reviewed the latest scientific literature on nutrient content of organic food report that fruits and vegetables grown without the use of artificial fertilizers are richer in nutrients like vitamin C and in beneficial substances known as secondary metabolites. Phenolics, tannins, flavanones, carotenoids and resveratrol strengthen the immune system and protect against damaging free radicals. The increased levels of these nutrients in organically grown produce helps people live longer, the researchers said. Though the news was welcomed by organic advocates, “the conclusion challenges the (U.K.) Food Standards Agency, which has long dismissed the health gains of organic food,” according to the Daily Mail article.
