Study Suggests: People Who Eat Organic Food Are 25% Less Likely To Get Cancer

A new study was conducted in France wherein it was found that people who eat organic foods are 25% less likely to get cancer. GMOs, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers are proven to cause cancer and fortunately, the mainstream news is finally sharing the truth.

A team of researchers studied 68,946 adult volunteers from France who provided information on how often they ate organic food, drinks and even dietary supplements. Participants were given a score, based on how often they eat organic food ranging from ‘most of the time’ to ‘never’ or ‘I don’t know.’ 

During two follow-up appointments, one in 2009 and another in 2016, the researchers then tracked cancer diagnoses, the most prevalent being breast cancer. Other cancers observed included prostate cancer, skin cancer, colorectal cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphomas and lymphomas. 

People who reported higher organic food scores were less likely to be diagnosed with cancer than the rest of the group. For example, those who consumed the most organic food were 25 percent less likely to have cancer, according to the research. That number grew to more than half when looking at cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

When factors like class, existing health problems, and age were taken into account, the findings were reportedly found to be the same.

Based on the results of the study, it was found that those people “who primarily eat organic foods were more likely to ward off non-Hodgkin lymphoma and postmenopausal breast cancer compared to those who rarely or never ate organic foods.” These findings were published in JAMA Internal

The researchers don’t believe that the findings prove a definitive link between a non-organic diet and cancer due to the reason that “richer people tend to be healthier, and are the most likely to choose more expensive organic food.”

Participants in the study who were reported eating mostly organic were also found to have healthier diets which include a lot of vegetables and fruits with only fewer junk foods and processed meats.

It is true that “You are what you eat.” That’s why it would be better to start changing your diet and lifestyle. Choose healthy foods. Choose organic. Your body will love you for it!
