Eating Organic Significantly Reduces Health Risks

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • A meta-analysis of six epidemiological studies published between 2001 and 2018 found glyphosate increases the risk of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) by 41 percent in highly exposed subjects
  • Of the six studies included, five showed a positive correlation. In the sixth, NHL risk was diluted due to the inclusion of people with very low exposure
  • Most foods (processed foods in particular) are contaminated with glyphosate, and more than 70 percent of Americans have detectable levels of glyphosate in their system
  • Recent research again confirms you can significantly reduce your toxic pesticide load by going organic, and results can be rapid
  • On average, pesticide and pesticide metabolite level for 14 compounds representing about 40 different pesticides were reduced by more than 60 percent, on average, after six days of eating an all-organic diet

According to polls, the No. 1 reason people choose organic food is to avoid pesticide exposure. Not only do these chemicals threaten the environment, but they also pose a very clear and direct risk to human health.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, has made headlines because it's the most used agricultural chemical in history and because the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has identified it as a probable human carcinogen.
