Organic Diet Helps Reduce Pesticide Content in Our Body

A new US research study has pointed out that adopting an organic diet can lead to reduction in pesticide content in the body based on urine sample analysis.

The study was conducted among 16 participants who had gone on an organic diet and altogether 158 urine samples were collected. It was observed that there was decline in 13 pesticide metabolites such as clothianidin, malathion dicarboxylic acid and pyridinol. Diet is a primary source of pesticide in human body and hence the relevance of the study.

The study points out the significance of including organic food in our diet even although it may be costlier but in the long run it gives immense health benefits.
