Expensive organic food does not affect the risk of cancer

Professor Tim Key (Oxford University) stated: "the Study was conducted on a large sample of middle-aged women in the UK, and we found no evidence that the cancer risk was lower among those who usually ate organic food. As for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, it is necessary to conduct additional research.

Popular, albeit expensive foods obtained by using "clean" technologies that do not contribute to reducing the risk of cancer. To this unexpected conclusion was made by British researchers, who published their results in serious medical edition of the British Journal of Cancer. In more accessible form about the results of their work, told the Daily Mail.

Still was considered axiomatic that organic (or organic) meat, milk, fruits, vegetables healthier. And this is understandable: such plants are grown without the use of fertilizers and pesticides, animals not being fed antibiotics and use natural food. At the same time, the pesticides used to protect plants under normal growing techniques, are carcinogenic. That is why many people are switching to organic food, despite the fact that these products are significantly more expensive than usual.

Scientists at Oxford University have decided to check how the risk of cancer associated with exposure to pesticides (breast cancer and cancer of the soft tissues), depends on the quality of the food. Results: the researchers found no evidence of increased risk of these types of cancer in people who eat normal food.

Researchers surveyed 600 000 women aged 50 years and older, whether they ate mostly organic food and watched the state of health in the past nine years. During this time, approximately 50,000 women get sick one of the 16 most common cancers. Approximately 180 000 participants never bought organic food, 45 000 sighting watched the quality of purchased food is "always" or "usually" giving preference to organic products. In Europe it is, by the way. very easy to do - there is a special "organic" stores and "organic" shelves in supermarkets. The participants adhered to the mixed type of food. Sometimes buying a "clean" products, sometimes settling for the ordinary.

Comparison of the incidence of cancer among fans of "clean" food and women eating routine products, showed that the risk was similar in both groups. Only one of the types of cancer (non-Hodgkin's lymphoma), scientists have recorded a decrease in morbidity, but tend to explain it by the action of other factors.

Professor Tim Key (Oxford University) stated: "the Study was conducted on a large sample of middle-aged women in the UK, and we found no evidence that the cancer risk was lower among those who usually ate organic food. As for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, it is necessary to conduct additional research.

In addition to the research findings, the food Standards Agency in the UK had previously stated that the use of organic products do not provide any significant nutritional advantage over the "inorganic", because fruits and vegetables are grown using traditional technologies, contain, according to the norms, a very small number of pesticides.
