My environmental evolution began with animal rights which lead me to conservation and vegetarianism. There are so many reasons organic food is better for our earth and health, but many of these reasons have not been reinforced with studies, partially because many studies are conducted by petrochemical and GMO companies to assure the public and farmers their products are safe. A new study has found that organic food is higher in antioxidants and contain less pesticides than conventional crops. In a new study published today in the British Journal of Nutrition researchers at Newcastle University in England have found that organic crops overall contain 17% more key anti-oxidants than non-organically grown crops, while some classes of anti-oxidants known as flavinones, were found at a rate 69% higher.
The research analysed 343 studies into the differences between organic and conventional crops and found that switching to organic foods would provide anti-oxidants equivalent to eating 1-2 extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The research also shows that organic crops have markedly lower levels of toxic heavy metals, including 50% less cadmium.

It is clear we should avoid putting heavy metals into our bodies, but what are the benefits of increased antioxidants? Our ethos is to provide news, information, and opinions on natural, green parenting to help your family live a more healthy life!

London, Feb 23: Those who have been spending money on organic fruit and vegetables are in for a shock. A new study has revealed that organic fruit and vegetables are less nutritious and do not taste better than those grown using chemicals.
Trials of three garden crops, potatoes, broccoli and tomatoes, found the non-organic items were more nutritious and tastier, reports the Daily Express.

For the broccoli, those grown normally had higher levels of antioxidants than the organic samples.
Non-organic tomatoes had a stronger flavour and were sweeter than their counterparts, according to 69 per cent of tasters. Nutritionist Carina Norris said: "This research shows that fruit and vegetables grown non-organically also have plenty of goodness in them.
There is concern about antioxidant supplementation, so the best of these important nutrients is your food.
