A new report by the European Parliament’s independent Research Service highlights the many positive benefits of choosing organic produce.

The study, entitled ‘Human health implications of organic food and organic agriculture’, was carried out by the European Parliament’s independent Research Service and draws together existing scientific research into the differences between organic and non-organic food and farming. It is an overwhelming win for organic farming, finding that organic farming practices can help develop healthy food systems which are beneficial for public health.

The report concludes that eating organic food has a variety of benefits for human health, ranging from better early development to reduced risk of disease and more potentially beneficial nutrients.
