Study Shows Organic Foods Are Not Much Healthier

According to a recent study at Standford University, organic foods are not much healthier


People who often cite their loyalty to organic products — which are significantly priced higher than other foods — as being a healthier option are wrong. Stanford University doctors dug through reams of research to find out — and concluded there’s little evidence that going organic is much healthier, citing only a few differences involving pesticides and antibiotics. The study was conducted after numerous patients asked them if eating organic products was the healthier food option.

I was absolutely surprised,” said Dr. Dena Bravata, a senior research affiliate at Stanford and long-time internist who began the analysis because so many of her patients asked if they should switch. Dr. Bravata stressed that there are many reasons why someone might choose organic foods over conventional foods, but when it comes to individual health, there isn’t much difference between the two.

    The sad thing about this article is the amount of pathetic people that will believe it. Most of you will never travel outside of the United States. So, you will never get to experience what it’s like to eat naturally grown organic fruits, vegetables or meat that came from an animal that wasn’t pumped up with hormones and chemicals it’s entire life. This is pure propaganda. Think about it. If a food isn’t organic then what is it? Genetically Modified Food. Have these Stanford scientist(?) taken a little mozy through the Black Community lately? Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Fibroids, Cancer are all related to diet. If you put a bunch of c**p into your body it will turn to c**p. Now all of a sudden because Black people are no longer wanting to eat a bunch of crappy fast food they dump in our neighborhoods and demanding healthy standards as the old school generation of our parents who can’t eat a bowel of vegetables without putting some pig a*s in it and have too eat something fried everyday die out. Now after decades of research showing and proving eating healthy is beneficial they say ‘Oh, it makes no difference if you eat a bunch of Genetically Modified c**p’? I went to Europe where this c**p is illegal. They don’t allow these chemicals put in their food. You know the first obvious thing I noticed hardly any fat people. Same lifestyles of tv, computer games, smoking and drinking. But hardly any fat people. This is directly attributed to the food. There is no way around this. Put a bunch of hormones into animals and vegetables it becomes harder for the body to digest and also modifies your own DNA. I hate it when YourBlackWorld re-prints aritcles like this without any basic fact checking. Seriously? You just printed an article telling Black People that there is no difference between eating c**p and healthy food basicaly? Didn’t bother asking who gave Stanford the Research Grant? Just because Stanford’s name is on it, we are just supposed to believe whatever some white Ivy League School says? Ask yourself the basic question once again. If food isn’t organic what is it? Not once in this article did they call “conventional” foods what they are. Genetically Modified Organisms’, food made hybrid modifications to last longer on the shelf, built in insecticides, seeds that you can’t re-plant to grow your own food and hardly any taste or nutritional value. Stop eating c**p that is killing you my people. I can’t understand Black People in the 21st century still don’t get the understanding that there are a group of people on this planet using soft k**l weapons to get rid of you. War, terrorizing and lynching are old school. Today they use disease, diet and psychological manipulation. This reminds of the scene in the movie Erin Brockovich when they were suing a bunch of Chemical company lawyers for poisoning a towns drinking water. They set a glass of water on the table filled with the water that was supposedly poisoned that the chemical company lawyer’s were fighting saying it wasn’t. Not one of them drank the d**n water. Of course they lost. So, do any of you reading this think that these so-called Scientist have stopped eating healthy organic foods for a bunch of GMO c**p they are telling you is no different. Get real.
