 A study from the University of California, Davis, showed organic tomatoes had 79% more quercetin and 97% more kaempferol aglycones (advantageous flavonoids) compared to conventional tomatoes. Studies on organic milk yield the same results with higher levels of antioxidants and beneficial fatty acids like
conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3 fatty acids. One such study reported that, on average, organic milk yielded 68% more omega-3 fatty acids than conventional milk. How to Go OrganicAmong the many reasons and benefits people list for going organic are: Soil healthMore nutrientsCleaner food without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemicals and processes like irradiationBetter for the environment, farmers, and birds and beesAvoiding or limiting unknown long-term health consequences of GMOs and chemical pesticidesCloser to nature and indigenous agricultural farming practicesMore healthy fatsPossible reduction in cancer riskAvocados not grown organically don't absorb as many pesticides as some other produceThere’s also the clean fifteen and dirty dozen – a guide by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) that lists
the fifteen foods that are cleanest to buy conventionally grown and the twelve foods that are best to buy only organic because they may contain higher levels of pesticides. Foods with a thicker skin, such as avocados, have a greater protective barrier and are easily peeled, so the skin can be removed and less pesticides get into the flesh. Foods like strawberries and spinach are not peeled before eating and don’t have a protective coating, so organic food proponents believe more pesticides are absorbed and therefore consumed.
