Can an organic diet make you healthier?

    Yes, there is a lot of evidence that a diet high in organic foods is healthier than a non-organic diet. Organic food is free of most pesticides and hormones. Israeli researchers have linked symptoms such as headaches, tremor, lack of energy, depression, anxiety, poor memory, dermatitis, convulsions, nausea, indigestion and diarrhoea with dietary intakes of pesticides. Organic food does not contain artificial coloring and preservatives, which have been linked to hyperactivity in children. The concentration of nutrients in organic food also tends to be higher, since crop yields are lower and the food is allowed to ripen naturally.

    Of course! Organic food is supposed to be free of dangerous chemicals, such as those found in herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides. If you’ve ever had the chance to read Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, or the many books it has influenced, you’ll know that these chemicals pose the biggest threat to non-organic foods. They are truly toxic to the body, storing themselves in the fat cells of the body and causing serious illness in some cases.

    According to the Mayo Clinic, when comparing food that is organically grown with non-organic food, no difference was found in the nutritional value of the food. So, it depends on what you mean by being “healthier”.  You reduce your risk of experiencing side effects from pesticide intake and of encountering carcinogens from food additives, etc. by eating organic food.  Strictly speaking, however, scientific research has not shown organic food to be of a higher nutrition value than non-organic.
