LONDON – Organic food supporters defended the benefits of naturally grown produce on Friday, after a report suggested there are no significant health advantages from it.

In a study published in a U.S. journal this week, researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) found there were no major differences between organic and conventionally-produced food. “A small number of differences in nutrient content were found to exist between organically and conventionally produced crops and livestock, said Dr. Alan Dangour, principal author of the study. “But these are unlikely to be of any public health relevance.”
