Is organic food healthy? Are organic food better than normal food?

t has been found in the recent results published after a long research that the organic food has got no special nutritional or health value over ordinary food.The researchers from England's London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have announced their results where they specify that consumers were actually buying organic food at higher prices because they believe in unrealistic health benefits that the organic food offers. The organic food craze was the cause for immense booming business generating $48 billion in 2007 out of organic food sale.

A methodical assessment of 162 scientific papers available in the scientific literature over the last 50 years, nevertheless, found there was no noteworthy difference.

Very little differences in nutrient content was found to be present between organically and conventionally produced food, however these are unlikely to be of any significance,as the published reports indicated.

The assessment indicates that there is at present no proof that organic food is superior over the conventional ones.

It is also interesting to note that the sales of organic food have gone down in some markets due to recession on the fact that the customers are reluctant to opt for organic food as they are costlier.

So, don't jump immediately to the organic food section when you visit a store next time. By doing so you might save some cash for a beer in the evening.
