Organic Food vs. Conventional Food

We know that organic food has no chemical pesticides or fertilizers, hormones or antibiotics, but is organic food more nutritious? When it comes to ketchup...................
organic wins!
A study shows that organic ketchup contains 3 times more of the anti-oxidant lycopene than conventional ketchup. Why? Experts suspect that the organic tomato plant has to fight harder for its survival than the chemically treated conventionally grown tomato plant. The organically grown plant produces more protective anti-oxidants to protect itself. As a result, we get the benefit of higher anti-oxidant fruit! I have read this is true of organic strawberries as well. Organic strawberries contain more anti-oxidants and more Vitamin C than conventionally grown strawberries. Just another reason to buy organic!
