French researchers tracked nearly 69,000 adults for five years. Those who reported eating the most organic foods were 76 percent less likely to be diagnosed with lymphoma and 34 percent less likely to be diagnosed with postmenopausal breast cancer than those who ate the least.
What to do: Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables-organic or not. It’s worth buying organic foods to protect the environment, but it’s too early to know if they prevent cancer.
Something else about people who buy organic food could explain their lower risk. And although it’s likely that the organic food eaters were exposed to fewer pesticides, this study had no data to prove it.
