ORGANIC IS HEALTHIER
Not all cabbages are created equal. . .
It's obviously healthier to eat food free from toxic chemicals rather than food laced with pesticides, antibiotics, heavy metals and other contaminants – and it's also healthier to eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruit rather than highly-processed foods, organic or not.
Vegetables and fruit contain most of the micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, etc.) that we need for optimum health. It’s therefore important that the veges and fruit we consume contain high levels of these micro-nutrients, and are not just empty bags of fibre and water.
Recent scientific studies comparing the nutrient content of organic and non-organic produce in a rigorous way find that organic foods are, for example, significantly higher in a range of anti-oxidants.
Organic dairy foods also have a better nutritional profile, as well as being free from chemical and biological contaminants.
Organic really is a healthier choice.
