Alliance for Food and Farming Adds New Nutrition Research Webpage

The Alliance for Food and Farming (AFF) has recently added information to the research section of its website that addresses two studies related to nutritional health.  Among the freshly-posted material is information related to a study about the daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, as well as information on the consumption of conventional versus organic produce. 

The Alliance posted descriptions and links related to each study, the first which shows that consuming seven or more servings of produce per day lowers the risk of premature death by 42 percent.  The new page also features information showing no difference between the cancer rates of women who consumed organic versus conventional produce.    

Matt McInerney, chairman of the Alliance, applauded the new page and also the findings.  “The importance of these findings is that the research further confirms what most people already believe to be true; that eating more fruits and vegetables -- regardless of whether they are conventionally grown or organically grown -- promotes healthy living and healthy life choices.  I am proud that we could make this information available to the general public.”
