A new study discovered by our friends over at The Soil Association shows the positive differences between organic and conventional food
Even more reasons to be organic
Whilst we were all having our mince pies, puddings and copious amounts of chocolate, a new study was being conducted to show the effect organic farming practices have on our food. You can find the whole article just here.
"The research also confirms something else we already know about organic food - that it's nutritionally different. For example, organic meat and dairy are higher in omega 3 fatty acids, as well as some vitamins and minerals. Organic veg crops are higher in antioxidants and have fewer pesticides and toxic heavy metals (among other benefits). These are just some of the great reasons to choose organic."
