The review sums up evidence from hundreds of studies of organic foods. Some of the studies compared organic milk, meats, eggs, and produce to non-organic foods. Those studies measured nutrients in the foods as well as contaminants like pesticides and bacteria. A few studies tried to find health differences between people who ate only organic or only non-organic foods.
After weighing all the evidence, the researchers conclude that organic foods don’t appear to have more vitamins or nutrients than non-organic foods.
