(Natural News) French researchers can give you a scientifically backed reason for why you should switch to an organic diet. In an epidemiological study, they found that participants who ate plenty of organic foods are less likely to develop certain types of cancers, especially when compared to those who eat little or no organic foods.
In particular, the chances of developing breast cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and other lyphomas went down. The researchers surmised a connection between this and the reduced amount of synthetic pesticides in the diet of people.

Due to currents levels of soil depletion, genetic modification and pesticides, crops grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. But what’s the nutritional difference between a carrot in 1950s and one today?
If you’re buying fresh fruits and vegetables in the United States, 70 percent of it will carry pesticide residues on it even after you’ve washed it, according to a new study from a widely-respected health advocacy group.
The Environmental Working Group’s annual analysis of U.S. Department of Agriculture data offers grim evidence of the over-saturation of pesticides and toxic chemicals in conventional agriculture in the United States, with top crops such as spinach and strawberries counting among the most contaminated produce.
The group hopes the report will inform shoppers of the risks inherent in buying and consuming conventionally-grown produce versus organic fruits and vegetables.

(NaturalHealth365) Statistics on heart disease – the number one killer in the nation – are truly disturbing, with the U.S. CDC reporting that the condition claims the lives of roughly 610,000 Americans every year. In addition, a shocking 5.1 million people in the United States are affected by heart failure.
With the odds of surviving past the five-year mark currently standing at 50 percent, it’s clear that more effective prevention and treatment options are needed.

(Natural News) It has been said many times that eating organic is healthier, but a recent year-long study by a European Parliamentary committee has once again proven the benefits of food without chemicals. In the report, titled “Human Health Implications of Organic Food and Organic Agriculture,” they discovered a link between eating organic and improved early development, as well as the obvious positive of less pesticide exposure
(NaturalHealth365) Anti-aging studies and longevity research are hot topics this day and age. No doubt, this is all being pushed by the aging baby boomer population.
It should be noted that the average life expectancy of an Americanis 78.7 years. And, that this is a decline over the past two years which researchers attribute – at least partly – to declining emotional well-being and an uptick in deaths due to substance abuse, but that’s a story for another article.
(NaturalHealth365) A recent meta-analysis included in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition determined that eating more antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E can reduce mortality rates. In fact, having more antioxidants in your blood can reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and your overall risk of death for up to three decades later.
Researchers looked at 69 different studies in their meta-analysis. They dug deeper into studies on vitamin C, carotenoids, and vitamin E to find out how much they really impact your risk of death. The results were astounding…Read more
