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.
