Can Eating Organic Boost Fertility in Women?

Leave a comment

Yourwellness Magazine reported on a recent study, published in the journal PLOS One, which found that organic food boosts fertility. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “Researchers at Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, carried out a study on fruit flies that revealed the insects fed an organic diet had better general health. Why the flies eating organic food did better was not revealed by the study but the team believe their work is a step along the way to understanding the potential health benefits of organic food.”

Yourwellness Magazine explained that the researchers used fruit flies because these particular insects are often used in studies on human diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The study found that longevity and fertility increased in the flies fed onorganic food while those flies also performed better in general health tests. Yourwellness Magazine notes that further study is now required into how organic food might achieve the same outcomes in humans.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
