Organic products can contain bacteria that are potentially harmful to humans, while the rest of the food in their containers may be healthy, a new report says.
While there is a consensus that the best food is organic, there are some risks that need to be weighed up, according to the report from the UK-based Organic Consumer Coalition.
“It’s important to be careful when choosing your organic food, and this is not just about the safety of the product but also the quality of the produce, said co-author Caroline MacLeod, an organic farmer in London.”
We have to be aware of the risks associated with the different organic ingredients and how to ensure that the food is safe for people to eat.
“There is a big debate about how safe it is to eat some organic food.
Is it safe for you?
Is it safer for the environment?
Is that safe for your child?”
In some cases, there may be benefits to eating more organic food as a result, but in general, it’s a bit of a grey area.
“According to the study, which was based on a review of scientific research, only a handful of studies have examined whether the levels of bacteria in organic produce are safe.”
Some of the studies have looked at specific foodstuffs, such as vegetables, but other studies have used foodborne bacteria levels as a proxy to compare the levels between organic and conventional produce,” the report said.”
A small number of studies, such to study the health effects of organic food and the effects of certain contaminants, have looked specifically at the health of animals, but they have not found that organic food poses any significant health risks to humans or animals.
“This is because the majority of the organic produce comes from small-scale farms and animals.
There is no evidence to suggest that the levels in organic food pose any health risks, which is why we do not recommend it for most people.”
In the report, the UK government also called for more research into the health risks of eating organic, saying that there is currently no evidence that the results of this study were “representative” of what happens when food is produced in a “sustainable” way.
The UK is home to about 4.5 million organic farms, which produce about two million tonnes of food per year.
It is estimated that 80 per cent of the UK’s organic food comes from sustainable farming practices, with more than 90 per cent coming from British farms.
The government said that “the UK is a world leader in organic agriculture, with a growing number of organic businesses operating in every part of the country”.
The government has pledged to introduce a new “green” label on all organic products in the next year.
The report also said that it is crucial to check for any contaminants in food before eating it.
“Many contaminants are not found in the food but they can cause allergic reactions or other illnesses in people and animals,” it said.
“People who are sensitive to pesticides and have allergies may find the products they purchase may not be safe for them.”
When it comes to the food, consumers need to take the information they receive from the manufacturers of food seriously, and also ask questions when buying it.
