As you may have seen recently, a meta-study (an analysis of multiple studies) by researchers from Stanford University looked at the nutritional benefits of organic food. The study concluded that organic food isn’t any more nutritious than conventionally-grown foods that use pesticides.
- Protects and promotes the well-being of farmers and our eco-system (soil, ground water, atmosphere, oceans, wildlife, etc).
- Results in foods that contain fewer chemical pesticides and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and no GMOs.
These are key benefits that we believe shouldn’t be ignored and they are some of the reasons why we support organic food production.To read more rebuttals and analysis to this study, check out the following:
