No Evidence That Organics are better?

I hate it every time I see this headline . This review was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. It was conducted by researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. These are the same people who conducted a review that led to the same conclusion last year. In the earlier review, the researchers examined 162 studies and found no evidence of nutritional benefits from organic foods.

This a perfect example of “figures lie and liars figure”. The key is not what’s in organic food from a macronutrient standpoint, it’s what’s not in it from a poison standpoint. This type of “research” is just designed to confuse people. My feeling is that you will live longer the more high quality food you eat. The big food companies don’t like this idea. Read the entire studies, not the headlines.
