Organic Foods Reduce Cancer Risk

Pesticides in fruit and vegetables can cause cancer researchers say

The researchers quizzed 68,946 French adults about their diets and then followed them for an average of five years, with 1,340 developing cancer during that time.

And people shouldn't stop eating fruits and vegetables if they can't afford more expensive organically grown options.

Pesticides linked to cancer include the weed killer glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, and the organophosphate pesticides malathion and diazinon.

The findings also support the notion from the International Agency for Research in Cancer that pesticide found in food is one of the leading causes of cancer.

"In general, we know that healthier diets are better for you from cancer risk", said Dr. Shepard.

One of them was postmenopausal breast cancer: The women who ate organic foods most often were 34 percent less likely to receive this diagnosis than women who ate organic foods the least.

"It was only a slightly higher risk and that there are more important actions that people can take to make positive changes, [such as] stopping smoking and maintaining a healthy weight", she said.

Jamal Khashoggi enters the Saudi consulate
Some governments and prominent executives have said they would pull out of a forthcoming investment conference in Saudi Arabia. Jubeir said the Saudis did not know how Khashoggi, a Saudi national and US resident, had been killed or where his body was.

The study authors ranked the volunteers according to how frequently they ate organic foods and divided them into four equally sized groups. According to Raj Arri, head of biomedical science at Tasmania University, the study says that organic food is beneficial, but how does it decrease the chances of cancer? Of course, people buy organic for numerous reasons, but can an organic lifestyle prevent cancer?

New cancer study looks at value of organic food consumption. The second most common was prostate cancer (180 cases), followed by skin cancer (135 cases), colorectal cancer (99 cases), non-Hodgkin lymphoma (47 cases), and other lymphomas (15 cases).

But the editorialists also pointed out some study weaknesses, most notably "the fact that the organic food questionnaire was not validated; therefore, it is unclear what the intended exposure, organic food consumption, was actually measuring".

Comparing the participants' organic food scores with cancer cases, the researchers calculated a negative relationship between high scores (eating the most organic food) and overall cancer risk.

After comparing the quantity of organic food consumed by each participant with the number of cancer cases the researchers reached an interesting conclusion.

Investigators also carried out a sensitivity analysis by including the main determinants of pesticide exposure - namely vegetable products - in the organic food score. According to the tenders, most of the people in the study were less fat, non-smoker and less alcohol consumption.

"Therefore, choosing organic versus non-organic foods will not necessarily capture actual exposure to pesticides, and other chemicals, without knowing the specific foods chosen as organic or conventional", Chavarro stated.
