Stanford University doctors have claimed that food grown in using organic methods is similar in nutrition value as that attained via traditionally grown foods.
Findings in a recent study conducted by these researchers subjected that organic food provides no different nutrients than conventional food.
Majority of the people chose organic food over conventional foods despite high costs due to the belief that organic food is healthier. The researchers suggested that there are not enough evidences, which support the fact.
The study laid emphasis on vitamins A, C, and E, as a result of which, its findings have been criticized by local organic advocates, who have asserted that the study provides with a vague image of the foods.
"A lot of times, studies may be looking at a few nutrients, not looking at all of the micro nutrients when we consume a whole carrot or whole foods", Candace Minster from the White Violet Center said.
The advocates affirmed that apart from the health benefits, organic foods even possess other advantages over the traditionally grown foods, including the benefits to the farmer and also is safe for the environment.
Moreover, while culturing such foods, artificial chemicals, including fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides, are not used and in case used, it's in minimal amount.
