Though there is some disagreement among experts as to whether organic foods have more nutritional content when compared to their conventional counterparts, there are other health-related arguments for eating organics. One major advantage of organic produce in particular is safety. Organic farming methods are less chemical-based, therefore less toxic and better for your health. Furthermore, the UK-based charity Soil Association claims that eating organic increases your body’s ability to absorb nutrients.
According to USDA data, conventionally grown apples have more pesticide residue than any other fruit or veg. In fact, 98% of apples still contained toxins even after being washed. This means that organic apples are safer for your health and safer for those whose job it is to grow them.
Some studies have shown that organic berries have a higher antioxidant content than those grown using customary methods. Organic berries are also normally smaller, meaning that more fit inside packing containers of equal size—and more berries means more antioxidant-packed berry skin.
Research published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture shows that organic broccoli maintains its freshness and antioxidant content (including vitamin C) longer than non-organic broccoli.
Usually also cage-free, organic eggs are laid by hens that are not given antibiotics, hormones or vaccines. The hens are also fed organic feed grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers. Eggs are high in iron, protein, vitamin D and B12.
Research from the University of Barcelona and the Spanish Institute of Health shows that organic tomatoes contain higher levels of polyphenols than conventionally grown varieties. Polyphenols are antioxidants widely considered to have numerous health benefits.
