Organic food shown to be healthier

There has been much debate in recent years about the actual health benefits of organic foods. While it seems rather intuitive that foods created without the use of hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, and other chemicals would be much better for you, most scientific studies on this subject came up inconclusive. However, a large study done in the UK confirms that natural foods are significantly healthier for you, both in the reduction of bad stuff (pesticides, hormones, etc), and an increase in nutritional value (minerals, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and other nutrients).
