According to many recent studies, consuming organic products can lower the cancer risk down by twenty five percent, especially breast cancer and lymphoma. However, it appears to merely be the belief of consumers without any clear evidence. So can organic food reduces the risk of getting cancer?
A new French study indicates that consuming organic meat, dairy products, vegetable and organic fruits benefits our health and eliminates incidences of lymphoma and breast cancers. However, the lead author of that study does not confirm that its result proves a reduction in cancers is due to an organic diet.
Anyway, all health experts agree that organic food consumption can bring tremendous benefits to our healths. That study strengthen the thesis. It was sponsored by public and government funds. In order to confirm the result of that study, nutrition experts are calling for more contribution of the government and public donors. Because with such a small scale for experiments, no strong evidence can be given to change the dietary habit of consumers.
Currently, there is one thing that can be confirmed, eating more fruits and vegetables, no matter they are organic or not, can prevent cancers to some extent. Besides, you should also limit the intake of red meat, processed meat and sugars.
Organic foods are consumed more in recent years in Europe and in the US. According to a survey in 2018, sales of organic foods in the US increased to $45.2 billion by a year.
