A new study shows conclusive evidence that #organic crops, and the food made from them, are more healthy than their conventional counterparts. In this study, researchers conducted a meta-analysis on 342 peer-reviewed publications looking at the health benefits of organic agriculture, and found that organic crops have higher antioxidant levels, lower cadmium levels, and less pesticide residues than non-organic crops. Check out this non-technical summary by The Organic Center http://bit.ly/U6MWd7

NEW STUDY: Organic food has more of the antioxidant compounds linked to better health than conventional food, and lower levels of toxic metals and pesticides, according to the most comprehensive scientific meta-analyses to date. "The crucially important thing about this research is that it shatters the myth that how we farm does not affect the quality of the food we eat," said Helen Browning, chief executive of Soil Association, which campaigns for organic farming.

Debate Is Over: Organic Food Is More Nutritious
www.sustainablebusiness.com
A 30-year study by the Rodale Institute came to similar conclusions, and also found that organic farming produces yields that match or surpass those of conventional farming systems, especially during times of drought. It also improves the health of soil and water, requires half the energy inputs, and is critical in absorbing carbon dioxide that's driving climate change.

Fun! Check out the Daily Horoscope's article on which #organic foods you should choose (based on your sign, of course!) -- and let us know what you think:

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The Underworld -- everything hidden beneath the surface -- is Scorpio's territory. Honor your underworld affinity by eating a variety of organic mushrooms -- crimini, shitake, portobello, chanterelles ... although the part of the mushroom we enjoy -- the "fruit" -- is above-ground, most of the fungus is often hidden underground. The detective in you might enjoy gaining mycological skills and stalking wild varieties on your own.

“The important thing is this research has been able to look at a very large number of new studies that have been published since the previous work was done. Over half in fact of the studies are newly published research and has come to the clear conclusion that how you farm - the farming system - makes the difference to the nutritional quality of the food we eat. Farming systems are important and that can improve the nutritional quality of food. It is basically good news and something organic consumers have long believed.” Peter Melchett, Policy Director at the Soil Association on the Today program with BBC Radio 4. We have been blown away by all the coverage that the new organic study has received, and thought we’d share some of the highlights with you. Guy Watson, founder of Riverford, Soil Association licensee, has written a blog entry for Huffington Post here: huff.to/1r6Vfny The Guardian has written a piece about the "statistically significant, meaningful" differences here: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jul/11/organic-food-more-antioxidants-study The Telegraph weighs up the evidence: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/10962499/New-study-to-split-opinion-on-organic-food.html And the news has reached international publications, from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/12/science/earth/study-of-organic-crops-finds-fewer-pesticides-and-more-antioxidants-.html?_r=2 To TIME Magazine: http://time.com/2978648/organic-food-pesticides-antioxidants/ Photo credit: Fantastic infographic by the Organic Center http://t.co/O8abHIUae0

Did you know that in the last 8 years citrus greening has wiped out 90,000 acres of citrus in the US, and it may destroy all domestic citrus in the next decade? Even worse - proposed solutions to fight the disease include spraying massive toxic chemical pesticides! If these protocols are mandatory, it means that #organic citrus won't have a fighting chance at survival!
