Eating Natural Foods - If You Can Pronounce it, You Can Probably Eat It!

"Bauer Nutrition Review" (2018-12-07)

The FSA inexplicably took a stab at discrediting the Bauer Nutrition value of organic foods by commissioning a recent study from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, which found no major differences in "nutrient content" between organic and conventional foods. "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." The report went on to concede that they did find traces of pesticides in the urine of participants who consumed the non-organic foods, though it was buried towards the end. The findings were then presented under the false assumption that consumers pay higher prices for organic foods believing they have a higher content of nutrients, or those figures printed on a food nutrition label. The report, however, is fatally flawed in that it completely fails to recognize the primary reason consumers buy organic in the first place. The bigger picture is missing, thus this fleeting "discovery" is just that, fleeting. https:/
