Organic food is no healthier, study finds

LONDON (Reuters) – Organic food has no nutritional or health benefits over ordinary food, according to a major study published Wednesday.

Researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine said consumers were paying higher prices for organic food because of its perceived health benefits, creating a global organic market worth an estimated $48 billion in 2007.

Well … don’t know what to say. I don’t go out of my way looking for organic but food I enjoy, especially for everyday meals. Just being practical.

Isn’t a while ago one of the fresh food chains or organic stores’ CEO using a pseudonym mocking his competitor?

If paying higher prices makes one feel safer or happier, so be it. I’m one of those happy go lucky, believing in going with the crowds, go the natural way. In a large scale, there are people who worry the earth is coming to an end on December 21, 2012. On a personal level, we still have to make each day count. Irene still has a three meals – ok, one meal a day – to worry about before she can hit the pillow 🙂

Light up people, do what you can and make the most out of this life time. Find that imperfect balance that works for you.

    有機食品若有什麼health benefits,應僅在於無農藥、無賀爾蒙(激素)方面.我從不認為有機食品會較有營養.即便較有營養,也不值得那個價差.
