Eating Organics May Lower Cancer Risk

People who eat more organic foods, like produce, dairy, and meats, may significantly lower overall cancer diagnoses, especially lymphoma and breast cancer, researchers have found. A French study that included 70,000 adults (mostly women) for five years found that those who most frequently consumed organic foods had 25 percent fewer cancers overall compared to those who never ate organic. Those who consumed organic foods the most had 76 percent fewer lymphomas, 86 percent fewer non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, and 34 percent fewer post-menopausal breast cancers.
