Nutritional Quality of Organic Foods

The perception among many consumers today is that organically grown produce is nutritionally superior, and more healthy for you, than conventionally grown products. A new study published late last month sheds some important light on this sometimes heated topic. Researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine reviewed the findings of 162 scientific papers published over the past 50 years on this topic and concluded “there is currently no evidence to support the selection of organically over conventionally produced foods on the basis of nutritional superority.”
