ABSTRACT In the last decade, the production and consumption of organic food have increased steadily worldwide, despite the lower productivity of organic crops. Indeed, the population attributes healthier properties to organic food. Although scientific evidence is still scarce, organic agriculture seems to contribute to maintaining an optimal health status and decreases the risk of developing chronic diseases. This may be due to the higher content of bioactive compounds and lower content of… Expand
Increase of 4-Hydroxybenzoic, a Bioactive Phenolic Compound, after an Organic Intervention Diet
TLDR
Analysis of biological samples revealed a significant increase on the excretion of 4-hydroxybenzoic acid (4-HBA), a phenolic metabolite with biological activity, after the organic intervention, however, no changes were observed in the other variables analyzed. Expand
Some Differences in Nutritional Biomarkers are Detected Between Consumers and Nonconsumers of Organic Foods: Findings from the BioNutriNet Project
TLDR
The data suggest that a high consumption of organic foods, compared with very low consumption, modulates to some extent, the nutritional status of individuals with similar dietary patterns. Expand
Effects of Organic and Conventional Growing Systems on the Phenolic Profile of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
TLDR
The methodology used was able to detect previously unreported differences in bioactive components between organic and conventional EVOOs. Expand
Bioactive Compounds in Underutilized Fruits and Nuts
The plant wealth of nature is abundant with fruits and nuts which are widely utilized and exploited as supplementary food sources and also for industrial products as well as for extracting medicines.Expand
A Systematic Review of Organic Versus Conventional Food Consumption: Is There a Measurable Benefit on Human Health?
TLDR
The current evidence base does not allow a definitive statement on the health benefits of organic dietary intake, however, a growing number of important findings are being reported from observational research linking demonstrable health benefits with organic food consumption. Expand
Assessment of phenolic content, pesticide residue and biological activities of organic lemon and cucumber in Lebanese market
Purpose This study aims to evaluate the safety and quality of organic food product versus conventional ones in the Lebanese market. Design/methodology/approach Selected organic and conventionalExpand
Association of organic food consumption with obesity in a nationally representative sample
TLDR
The results of a cross-sectional epidemiological study assessing the association of organic food consumption with BMI and obesity in a representative lifespan French sample (INCA3 study) confirm the association betweenorganic food consumption and obesity during both childhood and adulthood. Expand
Metals and micronutrients in some edible crops and their cultivation soils in eastern-central region of Tunisia: A comparison between organic and conventional farming.
TLDR
The authors' data indicated a significant decrease in micronutrients in the edible part of crops from organic farming, however, toxic metals loads significantly increased in crops from conventional agriculture. Expand
Uncertainty surrounding the mechanism and safety of the post-harvest fungicide fludioxonil.
  • T. Brandhorst, B. Klein
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Food and chemical toxicology : an international journal published for the British Industrial Biological Research Association
  • 2019
TLDR
Troubling reports further delineate a capacity to disrupt hepatic, endocrine and neurological systems, indicating that fludioxonil may represent a health threat to consumers, and the pesticide should be re-evaluated for its potential to impact human health. Expand
Evaluation of environmental consequences affecting human health in the current and optimal cropping patterns in the eastern Lorestan Province, Iran
TLDR
The implementation of an optimal cropping pattern of irrigated and rainfed crops was proposed for the east of Lorestan Province using multi-objective nonlinear programming (MOP) and showed that the cropping areas of chickpea, rapeseed, and potatoes decreased by 50% in the irrigated crop of Mop model and that of lentil in the MOP model ofRainfed crops compared with the current pattern.

Organic Food in the Diet: Exposure and Health Implications.
TLDR
This review provides an update on market data and consumer preferences for organic food and summarizes the scientific evidence for compositional differences and health benefits of organic compared with conventionally produced food. Expand
Contribution of Organically Grown Crops to Human Health
TLDR
Consumption of organic food seems to be positive from a public health point of view, although the reasons are unclear, and synergistic effects between various constituents within the food are likely. Expand
Foodomics: A new tool to differentiate between organic and conventional foods
TLDR
The main focus of this review is to provide an overview of the studies that use foodomics techniques as a tool to differentiate between organic and conventional production. Expand
Effects of organic food consumption on human health; the jury is still out!
TLDR
It is currently not possible to quantify to what extent organic food consumption may affect human health, because there is virtually no published data from long-term cohort studies focusing on chronic diseases and controlled human dietary intervention studies comparing effects of organic and conventional diets. Expand
Feeding trials in organic food quality and health research.
TLDR
Animal feeding trials with feed from different production systems should be conducted, with the aims to define health indicators and to establish biomarkers as a basis for future dietary intervention studies in humans. Expand
Organic food: nutritious food or food for thought? A review of the evidence
TLDR
Although there is little evidence that organic and conventional foods differ in respect to the concentrations of the various micronutrients, there seems to be a slight trend towards higher ascorbic acid content in organically grown leafy vegetables and potatoes. Expand
Effects of organic and conventional growth systems on the content of carotenoids in carrot roots, and on intake and plasma status of carotenoids in humans.
TLDR
The plasma status of carotenoids increased significantly after consumption of the organic and conventional diets, but no systematic differences between the agricultural production systems were observed. Expand
Human Semen Quality in Relation to Dietary Pesticide Exposure and Organic Diet
TLDR
The estimated dietary intake of 40 pesticides did not entail a risk of impaired semen quality, but precautions should be taken when generalizing this negative result to populations with a higher dietary exposure level or an intake of other groups of pesticides. Expand
Contribution of Organic Food to the Diet in a Large Sample of French Adults (the NutriNet-Santé Cohort Study)
TLDR
This study provides a framework for the exploration of organic consumption and its correlates and can serve as a basis for future studies investigating relationships between the level of organic food consumption and health outcomes. Expand
