We reported over 4 years ago that organic food actually IS healthier to eat. Now a 10-year-study reaffirms that this is true.
In New Scientist, Duncan Graham-Rowe reports that the heart-helping compounds called favonoids are 79 to 97% higher in organic tomatoes. Researcher Alyson Mitchell says this difference is probably explained by the fact that regular, non-organic, crops are overfertilized, with too much nitrogen, because flavonoids are caused by a defense mechanism that is triggered when the plant does not get enough nutrients.
Make sure you know the SECRET of how to identify organic fruits and vegetables!
