Want to be cancer-free? Go organic

All of the participants also completed follow-up questionnaires - on average around four years following the first round. Furthermore, they decreased the likelihood of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by 73 percent and postmenopausal breast cancer by 21 percent. This suggestion is in line with the findings by the International Agency for Research in Cancer which found pesticides are cancer-causing in humans.

Dr. Shepard points out that people who eat organic foods al so have the tendency to eat healthier diets and exercise more, which are also traits that have been associated with reduced cancer risk. The most common was breast cancer which was diagnosed in 459 volunteers. This is just the beginning of trying to understand whether or not organic foods may impact health in general and cancer risk in particular.

Baudry and her colleagues concluded, "If the findings are confirmed, promoting organic food consumption in the general population could be a promising preventive strategy against cancer".

The researchers used data from the NutriNet-Santé study to examine the eating habits of almost 70,000 French adults.

"There are no obvious reasons for these exceptions, although the author speculates that cell turnover rates may come into play for melanoma", Dorothy C. Bennett, director of the Molecular and Clinical Sciences Research Institute in London told CNN Bennett, who was not involved in the study, explained that pigment cells, the source of melanoma, divide and are replaced a little faster in taller people.

"Organic" is a term used to refer to food items that are less likely to contain pesticide residue.

However, Chavarro added that researchers designing future studies should be mindful of certain limitations in this new study. Study participants also self-reported their food intake, and such self-reporting is notoriously inaccurate.

In the USA, more than 9 out of 10 people have measurable amounts of pesticides in their urine or their blood, and these concentrations are known to fall when people switch from conventionally produced foods to organic ones.

"This study provides more evidence suggesting pesticides in food may be harmful", said EWG Toxicologist Alexis Temkin, Ph.D. Still the authors need to show this, he said in the podcast about the study. While it can be overwhelming, we know eating organic reduces our exposure to hormones, chemicals, antibiotics, and pesticides. Yet the study does not do a good job of sorting and evaluating these differences, he noted.

"And for these 16 foods, we summed up the answers and provided an organic food consumption score after which we examined the association between these organic scores and cancer risk".

Doctors say more research needs to be done to look at the specific role that organic food may play in cancer prevention.
