Real Evidence! The Incredible Benefits of Organic Food

By Lusea Lu / July 6, 2015

Does eating organic food make a huge difference? The answer must be a clear YES.  The benefits of organic food are undeniable if you look at the results of the study.  The most important health benefits are the massive reduction in Pesticides, Insecticides, Fungicides and plant growth regulators which are all toxic to the human body in one or the other way. Long-term effects are not fully researched yet, however what we know, already shows clear indications that they have to be avoided whenever possible.

Benefits of organic food

While organic food might not be richer in nutrients, the study shows a drastic reduction in chemicals used in conventional farming.

Take at look at the dramatic results:

Chlormequat chloride is a plant growth regulator. In the US it is classified as a low risk pesticide, however it is not approved for use on crops intended for use in food nor for animal feeding. [1]
Mepiquat chloride is a pesticide and caused some toxicity in chronic animal feeding studies as well somme developmental toxicity in the offspring of pregnant rabbits.”[2]

3-PBA is a breakdown product of pyrethroids based pesticides and has been linked to ADHD.  According to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center: “Boys with detectable urinary 3-PBA, a biomarker of exposure to pyrethroids, were three times as likely to have ADHD compared with those without detectable 3-PBA. Hyperactivity and impulsivity increased by 50 percent for every 10-fold increase in 3-PBA levels in boys. Biomarkers were not associated with increased odds of ADHD diagnosis or symptoms in girls.” [3]

TCP is Trichlorphenole or Tetrachlorphenole is used in fungicides, fertilizers and pesticides and definetly a toxic compound. They are also degration products of the good old toxic PCP (Pentachlorphenol) which has been banned in Germany in 1989.

Processed and factory foods are highly contaminated with ingredients that are undoubtfully toxic, while politicians stay argue on behalf of the lobbists.  So better watch out or just eat organic whenever possible. Being able to avoid and remove these toxins from your diet is just one of a whole range of benefits of organic food.

The study was conducted by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL. The full report is available here:
