Organic foods could help prevent cancer, claims new study

Can organic food help you reduce your risk of cancer? A new study suggests the answer may be yes

A team of scientists in France looked at the diets of almost 68,000 people for 4.5 years and found that those who ate primarily organic foods were more likely to ward off certain kinds of cancer than people who rarely, or never, ate organic foods. The separation experts take into account the presence in the diet of 16 organic products, including fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, ready meals, vegetable fats, seasonings and food additives.

Pesticides linked to cancer include the weed killer glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, and the organophosphate pesticides malathion and diazinon.

Dr. Shepard points out that people who eat organic foods al so have the tendency to eat healthier diets and exercise more, which are also traits that have been associated with reduced cancer risk.

However, looking at specific sites, "we found that the negative association was the case for all lymphomas, as well as for postmenopausal breast cancer, but we did not find any association with any other cancer sites", Baudry stated.

According to Tom Collins, Professor of Kings College London, the benefits of organic food have been enhanced in this study.

New research has been released about whether or not organic food can actually reduce the risk of cancer.

Baudry is a researcher at the Center of Research in Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne Paris Cité of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research.

"This study provides more evidence suggesting pesticides in food may be harmful", said EWG Toxicologist Alexis Temkin, Ph.D. During this period a total of 1,340 cancers were detected among the participants and of these 459 were breast cancers, 180 were prostate cancers, 135 were skin cancers, 99 were colorectal cancers and 47 were non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

Organic food is more popular than ever as more Americans are looking to avoid additives and while we assume it's healthier, the new research looked at cancer rates specifically. In the Million Women Study, participants who ate organic food regularly had a 21 percent lower risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma than participants who didn't eat organic food at all.

Chavarro also noted that food labeling, particularly in the USA, can be confusing for consumers.

What's "urgently" needed is a more detailed study that would address some of the problems in the French report, according to the commentary.

Investigators also carried out a sensitivity analysis by including the main determinants of pesticide exposure - namely vegetable products - in the organic food score.

She explained among the environmental risk factors for cancer there was growing evidence of a link between exposure to pesticides notably in farm workers and cancer development.
