Organic produce proven to be more nutritious

According to London's The Times, organic food, particularly fruits and vegetables, are more nutritious than ordinary produce and may help lengthen people's lives. The evidence is based on "the biggest study into organic food."

The study found that organic fruit and vegetables contain as much as 40 percent more antioxidants and higher levels of beneficial minerals, according to the article.

Originally, the (British) Food Standards Agency said there is no difference between organic and ordinary produce, but they are "reviewing" the evidence before deciding whether to change its advice.
