Organic food and cancer risks


Since becoming more widely accessible, organic food has been constantly linked with this apparent benefit – that it reduces the risk of developing cancer. Well you might be interested to hear that a recent study seems to prove this true.

The famous JAMA journal (Journal of the American Medical Association) published a study two weeks
ago assessing 70,000 people and demonstrating the impact of low-pesticide containing diets on the
risk of cancer.

The French researchers have in fact revealed that regularly consuming produce from organic farming
can reduce your risk of developing cancer by 25%. According to their study, the risk specifically of
breast cancer and lymphoma is even more reduced.

Emmanuelle Kesse-Guyot, a researcher at the French national institute for agricultural research
(INRA) and co-author of the study, underlined that these results can be attributed to the difference in
pesticide levels between organic and non-organic foods.
