It makes sense that eating organic food made without toxic pesticides is better for your health, and more research is proving this point. Tracking nearly 70,000 people for over seven years, a new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that people who ate organic food were less likely to develop cancer than people who didn’t.
The health and environmental requirements of Certified Organic food span far beyond the non-use of toxic pesticides. Organic products must also be non-GMO and animals must be raised without antibiotics. Additionally, organic products must not contain artificial colors and flavors. Looking for the USDA Organic Seal is the easiest way to find products that support your health and the environment.
