Think organic food doesn't matter? A new study from the Swedish Environmental Research Institute begs to differ. A study of a Swedish family clearly shows the reduction in pesticide exposure, especially in children.
This study clearly illustrates that the food we eat is one route to exposure to chemicals. This is particularly true for children, who eat and breathe more in relation to their body weight. Consequently, the same exposure results in higher concentrations of chemicals in their bodies than in adults.
Below are the before and after graphs of the children in the family. The before period is when they ate all conventional food, the after period is when they ate 100% organics. The graphs show the reduction in various types of pesticides found in their bodies.
