Oganic is a fad. Just like "MSG is bad for you". Its all psychological . People think its healthier for them so they feel healthier. Are they actually healthier, no.

What my question is why are organic product more expensive? It would seem to me that it would be cheaper to produce as no additives or chemicals are used in the production of the products. So why the higher prices? Are they pushing the price of failed crop(unsellable) onto the consumer. That sounds like a rip off to me.

yea it's just the sugars in the soda.. organic is just less preservatives, and the fruits and veggies are the same without the pesticides, which means you pay more for them to do less haha I cut out sugars and lost 7 lbs in a couple weeks

yeah it costs the companies more money to make food organically....not sure why but i'm sure someone knows.....organic food has been around a long time it is just now catching on somewhat.....for the record organic food has grease in it...lol...really meat is not called organic...but called "all natural" without hormones, steroids, antibiotics, msgs, nitrates, fillers, so on and so forth...example: cows that eat grass instead of being fed man made grain with hormones and such in it...organic is like fruits and vegetables and such without pesticides and preservatives and artificial flavors and sweeteners and such...organic food is processed as little as possible...i don't know all the details about it as i'm new to organic food myself....but alot of it tastes alot better than normal "artificial" food....like awhile back i drank a Mt. Dew throwback ...it's made with natural sugar instead of refined sugar...it tasted much better than the normal kind to me....try it and see....you will taste the difference...in things like grape juice...the normal kind leaves like a dry taste in your mouth....the organic doesn't...it is pure....think of it as the difference between tap water and filtered water or bottled water ...i guess that is kinda the difference between regular food and organic food

I would have to agree that naturally grown ingredents do taste better...... But animals is another story. The taste of pork has actually degraded in the last hundred years or so mostly do to breeding. Trying to breed healthier pigs has actually decreased the quality of the usuable meat from pigs. Which is bad because there is nothing more delicious than a pig.


Secondly Personally I love me some cow that had been feed man made products. Particularly Beer and Saki, along with a grease down and shiatsu. Kobe Beef . Never could you get beef to taste so delicious naturally.

WOW. Hot topic here.
My cents: Organic not neccessarily better for you, but better for the environment and the soil to grow our food. Often common health problems, and colds and flus, that we get are associated with our diets. Chemicals bad. Natural Good.
Gotta treat the land with respect, so we can enjoy it in our Tacomas for years to come.

I was actually referring to all domestic pork products. There is a current movement to try and introduce "heritage" breeds of pigs into the U.S.. The current U.S. pork producers have been trying to control breeding of domestic pigs to cut down on parasites and diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Which is good but of course flavor is suffering because of it. Hence the movement to "re-introduce" the American public. Read a big article about it in Gourmet magazine.

And saying turkey is better than pork, that's just......... sacrilegious.
