"Cutting out pesticides by eating only organic food could slash your cancer risk by up to 86 percent, a new study claims. The biggest impact was seen on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma risk, which plummeted among those who shunned chemical-sprayed food, according to the survey of nearly 70,000 French adults. Overall, organic eaters were 25 percent less likely to develop any cancer, and their risks of skin and breast cancers dropped by a third. The finding comes amid a flurry of interest in the cancer risks of pesticides, spurred by this summer's Monsanto trial, when a jury awarded a cancer-suffering groundsman $250 million after concluding that Roundup weedkiller caused his cancer. The health benefit was far greater for obese people, they found. 'Our results indicate that higher organic food consumption is associated with a reduction in the risk of overall cancer,' lead author Dr Julia Baudry of the Centre of Research in Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne, Paris said. 'We observed reduced risks for specific cancer sites - postmenopausal breast cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and all lymphomas - among individuals with a higher frequency of organic food consumption.While organic food is nothing new, more and more studies are showing how pivotal it could be for your health. A recent review found that, while pesticide manufacturers dispute cancer links, the amount of evidence showing the links to be true is overwhelming. Earlier this year, a European Food Safety Authority report found almost half (44 percent) of standard food contains one or more chemicals, compared to just 6.5 percent of organic food. The paper was published in JAMA Internal Medicine..."

This study only deals with cancer, and that alone is enough reason to avoid the insanity of pesticide laced foods. However, these pesticides are linked to hormonal reversal, and many other diseases and afflictions.
