Several scientific studies have shown that there
are more beneficial nutrients in organically produced food and fewer
contaminants. A recently published Organic Farming, Food Quality
and Human Health report looked at over 400 research papers and concluded
that there is a large body of scientific evidence indicating organic
food is safer and better for you on average than non-organic food.
There is also a survey from the Soil Association in the UK that
shows there have been no recorded cases of BSE in any organically
reared herd. It has also been demonstrated that organic farming
practises reduce the risk of pathogens such as E.coli in a herd.
