“We have shown without doubt there are composition differences between organic and conventional food. Taken together, the three studies on crops, meat and milk suggest that a switch to organic fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products would provide significantly higher amounts of dietary antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids,” concludes Professor Leifert
In the old days, our food supply had a pretty even balance between omega-3s and omega-6s. With a change in farming practices, the advent of trans-fats and fast food, the scales have tipped. Eating conventionally grown food brings a stacked deck of omega-6 into our bodies.
