IIRC all food is "organic", iow it is made of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen. Farmers have been genetically modifying plants and animals for thousands of years. "Organic" does not mean no pesticides. Superior marketing to less-educated consumers wins every time. I'm not saying that they are stupid but rather they are uninformed about this particular part of reality. I see them as similar to people claiming that our electrical system can be powered by windmills.
5x ? give some examples. I do pay premiums like 2 times....but it has little of nothing to do with concerns about chemicals, it has to do with the fresh and tasty factor. And for meats, it has to do with the more humane treatment...I like them to live a better live before I eat them :) (funny as that sounds)
Who think organic is just about chemical free...that's crazy talk dude.
people who do not want to give themselves or their kids cancer .... I watch the local farmers market and even though prices are high that place is busy all day while other businesses suffer! Smart people vote with their money ... Fools spend on price alone.
