Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 26th October 2011

Victoria’s RMIT University is running an ‘Organic Food and Wellness’ Survey, to explore the health experiences of people who consume organic foods on a regular basis.

Recent studies in the Netherlands showed 75 per cent of organic consumers reported health benefits after moving to an organic diet, including improvements in energy, psychological wellbeing, resistance to and recovery from illness and gastrointestinal complaints.

The Survey aims to identify whether Australians who eat organic experience similar benefits. The results of the survey will be used to direct future research.

People who regularly eat organic food are invited to participate. The Survey will be closing on
Monday 10th January at 9.00am and can be accessed here.
