Importance of Organic Crops

Professor Carlos Leifert of ecological agriculture at Newcastle University in England conducted a thorough study on organic food. According to his research it was found that the fruits and vegetables that are grown in organic manner has more antioxidant and fewer pesticides compared to the foods grown conventionally. The result of the research will be published next week in British journal of nutrition. He is not fully convinced that eating organic food helps maintain good health.

Dr. Leifert clearly stated that no health claims are made in this research. The reason for the research is to find the difference between the organic foods and normal foods. They have found out that the organic food has more antioxidant content than the food grown conventionally. Eating organic food will give more antioxidant in less calories which is the positive side. Still he is not clear how switching to organic food will help a persons health, but he mentioned that some studies have mentioned that antioxidants are linked to cancer, if taken more, fewer cancer case's are found.

This result has a small conflict with research published by Stanford stating there is no major difference between organic and conventional foods. This result has shown that antioxidant content is more in organic food. According to Stanford research from two years back the difference between organic and conventionally grown food is very small and that doesn’t affect the human health, so there is no need to go for costly organic foods. Stanford researchers failed to find the pesticide residue is many times higher in conventionally grown foods than the organic food; instead they suppressed the significant of the organic food over conventionally grown food. It is still not proved that organic food is good for health, but it is good compared to the normal food.
