    Is kosher food healthier than regular food?

    Do they use less artificial preservatives and is it healthier in general to eat kosher food?

    Not really, no.

    "Kosher" simply requires that certain products not be used or used in certain combinations.  There are additional requirements regarding food preparation, and the equipment used to prepare the food.  Kosher food can be just as unhealthy as non-kosher food. 

    That said, keeping kosher requires a person to think more carefully about what they are eating.  This could lead a person to simultaneously become more health conscious.

    Yes, it is typically healthier for you because all Kosher food receives an extra inspection by as to its preparation and origin.  However, to eat Kashrut or Kosher is not just buying items certified to be kosher but to follow the guidelines of how one stores food and combines food and this is only a component of eating kosher.  To eat kosher also, and more importantly, combines the attitude as one prepares and serves and consumes the meal.  Being mindful of the abundance of the divine provision facilitates health just as much if not more.

    There is some science at universities on kosher food. scientists e.g. found out that eating pig meat affects the Human DNA and creates damages.

    And thhere is also some sciences regarding the vitamins in vegatables if they are cooked kosher.

    Even if view to kosher bread there are differences compared to none kosher breads.

    Probably the most logical assumption is, that in old Egypt, Babylon and Israel the priests also were doctors. The knowledge of the old cultures found its part in the religion to help humans simply to live healthy. If you want so, its a reward of God if you follow the rules.

    Now in the centry we are slowly discovering how food affects us and why the old religious doctrines reflect wisdom.
