No health benefits from organic food

30th July 2009

Research by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has found that organic food does not have higher nutritional value than normal food.

The study was commissioned by the Food Standards Agency. Gill Fine, a director at the FSA, said: "This study does not mean that people should not eat organic food. What it shows is that there is little, if any, nutritional difference between organic and conventionally produced food and that there is no evidence of additional health benefits from eating organic food."
