A comprehensive review commissioned by the French food agency AFSSA and conducted by researchers at the University of Aix-Marseille has concluded that organic produce has a number of clear advantages.
Author Denis Lairon coordinated the two-year study, which updated a prior evaluation published in 2003. These recent findings include the discovery that organic produce contains more minerals and antioxidants than its conventionally grown counterpart, with at least 94% and up to 100% being free from pesticide residues.
Moreover, along with the benefits of elevated iron, magnesium and other micronutrients, organic vegetables are 50% lower in nitrates. University of Aix-Marseille researchers and AFSSA we laud your detailed work in determining the benefits of different agricultural methods. May organic vegan farming practices be encouraged by governments everywhere for our personal and planetary revival.http://www.naturalnews.com/027854_organic_food_nutrition.html http://www.foodnavigator.com/Science-Nutrition/French-study-says-organic-food-is-healthierhttp://www.agronomy-journal.org/index.php?option=article&access=standard&Itemid=129&url=/articles/agro/abs/first/a8202/a8202.html
