Here are three things you might be interested in knowing about organic foods

Here are three actual facts you should know about organic foods.

1) Organic produce contains significantly higher phosphorous levels. (As I’ve mentioned before, phosphorous helps your body absorb calcium. So it’s a key mineral for bone health. Phosphorous also helps maintain and repair cells.)

2) Organic chicken contains higher levels of phenols and other compounds that produce antioxidant effects.

3) Organic milk may contain “significantly higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.”

These three details all come from one source. The Stanford study.

It’s the same study that produced this misleading headline… “Little evidence of health benefits from organic foods.”

Hmmm… Maybe they don’t know the definition of the word “little.”
