Organic foods are thought to be healthier than conventional foods because of the limited exposure to pesticides and other chemicals. Few studies have examined the long-term health effects of organic foods. By collecting information on organic food consumption and comparing those who tend to consume more organic foods (e.g., organic fruits/veg) to those who consume less, we could evaluate the impact of organic food consumption on the incidence of diseases, such as cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
