A growing number of people with cancer have been turning to organic foods. Organic foods have fewer hormones, pesticides residues and other compounds, which may be harmful to your health. Pesticide-free cultivation of plants is thought to stimulate the plants defense systems and help produce higher amounts of cancer-fighting compounds (a wide array of phytochemicals). Use organic foods whenever budget and availability permit, by doing so you can limit exposure to potentially harmful pesticides and hormones. As well as increase the amount of phytochemicals in your fruit and vegetables.
But it is a misleading fact to think that only organic foods contain these cancer-fighting compounds. It is better to eat "conventional" produce regularly, than to only occasionally eat organic fruits and vegetables. Also, many people (including a growing amount of chefs) claim organic foods simply taste better.
