From the UK Sunday Times On line:
"The biggest study into organic food has found that it is more nutritious than ordinary produce and may help to lengthen people's lives...."
"...The study found that organic fruit and vegetables contained as much as 40% more antioxidants, which scientists believe can cut the risk of cancer and heart disease..."
Although the Hippy Gourmet finds this study rather obvious, it's wonderful that our friends in the UK are doing this kind of research and proving what we've been saying and practicing for years!
