Eating organic foods frequently can keep cancer away, new study suggests

Julia Baudry, an epidemiologist from the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in France, led a research that looked at the various diets of almost 70,000 French men and women. Two months after enrollment, volunteers were asked to provide information on their consumption frequency of 16 labeled organic products, including fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meat and fish, grains, ready-to-eat meals, coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, and dietary supplements.

Researchers pin point specifically pesticides that may have carcinogenic properties, like glyphosate, malathion and diazinon. Lower risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women was also uncovered, with a 34% risk reduction among consumers with a high organic consumption score versus low.

Dr. Shepard said while more research needs to be done to look at the role that organic food may play in cancer prevention, its important for people to focus on risk factors that are within their control, and eating a healthy diet is something everyone can do.

"In general, we know that healthier diets are better for you when it comes to cancer risk, he said".

The Organic Center, a research and education organization managed by the Organic Trade Association, said in a statement that the study was the first of its scale to find to find such clear support of organic foods. 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?

In the US, more than 9 out of 10 people have measurable amounts of pesticides in their urine or their blood, and these concentrations are known to fall when people switch from conventionally produced foods to organic ones.

So a team from Inserm, the French equivalent of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, went looking for data.

According to a new study organic food consumption can protect against cancers. Specifically, they are 73 percent less likely to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 21 percent less likely to be diagnosed with post-menopause breast cancer.

The most common was 459 breast cancers, followed by 180 prostate cancers, 135 skin cancers, 99 colorectal cancers, 47 non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and 15 other lymphomas.

The researcher suggested that people shouldn't stop eating fruits and vegetables if they can't afford expensive organically grown options.

Even participants who ate low-to-medium quality diets yet stuck with organic food experienced a reduced risk of cancer, the authors found. Bean sprouts and soy are also good anti-cancer food. "It is unclear what the intended exposure, organic food consumption, was actually measuring", the author said.

What's "urgently" needed is a more detailed study that would address some of the problems in the French report, according to the commentary.

"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.
