New Study: Eating Organic = Less Cancer

We’ve all heard about the benefits of eating organic food when it comes to a healthy diet. I’ve blogged about it here. Now, a new study shows a decrease in risk for certain cancers in those who eat more organic. And it’s a large study.

“What they found, was that in patients who ate mostly organic foods, there were less cancers, specifically post-menopausal breast cancer and lymphoma.”

The study looked a nearly seventy-thousand people and followed them for about a five-year period. The people were divided into three groups.

  1. THOSE WHO NEVER ATE ORGANIC FOODS

     2. THOSE WHO ATE THEM OCCASIONALLY

     3. THOSE WHO ATE ORGANIC MOST OF THE TIME

RESEARCHERS FOUND THOSE WHO ATE ORGANIC FOODS MOST OF THE TIME HAD A REDUCED RISK OF CANCER, ESPECIALLY POST-MENOPAUSAL BREAST CANCERS, LYMPHOMAS, PROSTATE CANCERS, SKINS CANCERS AND COLORECTAL CANCERS.

DOCTOR SHEPARD POINTS OUT PEOPLE WHO EAT ORGANIC FOODS ALSO HAVE THE TENDENCY TO EAT HEALTHIER DIETS AND EXERCISE MORE, WHICH ARE ALSO TRAITS THAT HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH REDUCED CANCER RISK.

HE SAYS IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO THINK OF WAYS WE CAN TRY TO PREVENT CANCERS.

CG: Dr. Dale Shepard/Cleveland Clinic

“In general, we know that healthier diets are better for you from cancer risk. So, anytime people can incorporate more fruits and vegetables and minimize processed foods; the better.”

DOCTOR SHEPARD  ADDS WHILE MORE RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE DONE TO LOOK AT THE ROLE THAT ORGANIC FOOD MAY PLAY IN CANCER PREVENTION, IT’S IMPORTANT FOR FOLKS TO FOCUS ON RISK FACTORS WITHIN THEIR CONTROL, AND EATING HEALTHY AND DIET ARE THINGS EVERYONE CAN DO.
