Massive Study Finds Eating Organic Slashes Cancer Risks

Each participant was given an organic food score - from 0-32 - based on their responses.
The study participants were followed for about five years, and divided into three groups: those who never ate organic foods, those who ate them occasionally, and those who ate organic most of the time. They ate more fruit, vegetables, nuts and legumes, and less processed meat, other meat, poultry and milk - the kinds of dietary patterns the Cancer Council recommends to reduce the risk of disease. Furthermore, they decreased the likelihood of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by 73 percent and postmenopausal breast cancer by 21 percent.
He says that while it's hard to say at this point that eating organic is directly associated with a reduction in cancer risk, it's always good to think of ways we can try to prevent cancers, whether it's through more screening or improving our lifestyle habits.
What's more, a previous study - the Million Women Study - actually reported contradicting results; namely, that organic food consumption actually increased one's risk of contracting breast cancer, albeit slightly. The most common was breast cancer which was diagnosed in 459 volunteers.
Even participants who ate low-to-medium quality diets yet stuck with organic food experienced a reduced risk of cancer, the authors found. Risks of skin and breast cancers dropped by a third.
"Although our findings need to be confirmed, promoting organic food consumption in the general population could be a promising preventive strategy against cancer".
The researchers used data from the NutriNet-Santé study to examine the eating habits of almost 70,000 French adults. He co-authored a commentarypublished with the study. Additionally, as this was a purely observational study, the researchers believe further research needs to be done in this area to draw the most complete conclusion. They also align with those of another study that showed a negative relationship between eating organic food and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, he said. According to a new study, yes. He said, "Assessing intake of diet is hard, assessing intake of organic foods is notoriously hard". Of course, people buy organic for numerous reasons, but can an organic lifestyle prevent cancer?
"The main obstacle to purchasing organic food are high prices", say the authors of the study.
"This study provides more evidence suggesting pesticides in food may be harmful", said EWG Toxicologist Alexis Temkin, Ph.D.
"The methodology is good - they took data from large studies, which is important, and they looked at lots of different categories of cancer".
"In general, we know that healthier diets are better for you when it comes to cancer risk, he said".
