Organic fruit is healthier

I found this afternoon this on the web, in Organic Angels Blog:

Studies in the US of Kiwifruit grown under controlled conditions have found the organic fruit to be a lot healthier. The organic produce was found to have 14 per cent more vitamin C and greater concentrations of several important minerals such as potassium and calcium.

Soon to be published studies in the EU will be showing similar results in organic tomatoes, apples and peaches.

The Soil Assocation in the UK have said "It is very encouraging when science catches up with common sense. These studies show that as more science is conducted, more evidence emerges showing beneficial nutritional differences associated with organic food." Posted by: Scott Butler
