The study looked at an unprecedented 343 peer-reviewed publications comparing the nutritional quality and safety of organic and conventional plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, and grains. The study team applied sophisticated meta-analysis techniques to quantify differences between organic and non-organic foods.



It shows that the increased levels of antioxidants (between 18-69 percent) could have significant impact on human nutrition.

"If you buy, consistently, organic fruits and vegetables...you get one to even two extra servings of antioxidants from those organic foods compared to if you bought conventional brands," said Charles Benbrook, a Washington State University researcher and the lone American co-author of the paper.

Organic foods were also found to have less cadmium and pesticide residues than conventionally grown foods.

There should be dancing in the streets!  No more having to hear naysayers dismiss organic!

Thanks for posting this, C_Sharp

coz of the price differences peeps believe in Switzerland that *grown organic* is only to make more money....but they don't remember that once upon the times organic grown fruits and veggies and meats were completely normal......
next: coz of the scandales here in Europe and organicly grown materials...often chemicals were found...so far no wonder that the needed trust of the consumers do lack .........
