Overview

Organic food is grown without man-made chemicals and uses farming that is safe for the environment. Interest in organic food has been increasing over the years. People believe that organic food is healthier and safer than regular food. However it is not clear if this is always the case.

Organic food has been tried for conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and many others. However, there is not enough evidence to say that organic food is better for these conditions than regular food.

How does it work ?

Some people believe that organic food is healthier and safer than regular food. Organic food seems to contain less pesticides. Some research also shows that organic food contains more antioxidants than regular food. It's unknown whether these antioxidants help make people healthier. Finally, some research shows that organic milk and meat contain a higher amount of healthier fats compared to regular milk and meat. This might contribute to better heart health.
