Same old crapola, different packaging and marketing, three to six times the cost. Organic foods can also be even more harmful than regular foods because the products are never officially tested for any carcinogens or other harmful products that result from spraying with "organic" pesticides. Also, the methods of organic farming are very wasteful, since it takes quite a while for manure and compost to be absorbed by plants, and pests are allowed to eat the crop, thus causing much lower crop yields on the same amount of land, compared to modern artificial spray-and sprinkle farming methods.
If we devoted all agricultural methods to organic farming, most of the Earth's population would starve to death before any significant results occur.

Produce & products whom lure potential comsumers into a state of hypochondria & slap the word "organic" on a lable to justify jacking prices sky-high. While the company lable may be new or not well known, almost all are contracted by big-name corperations who monopolize smaller businesses & consolidate their products to reduce competition. Though not labeled "organic," bottled water fits into this category.
"Organic foods are a money scam, like bottled water. All the benefits are theoretical at best. The people who study them don't even read into both sides of the story; they're just good-natured health-nuts who feel justified at wasting money. I've been to an all-organics store before, you could go broke on that kind of living....where everything on the menu is one big placibo."

A set of standards for growing food and raising livestock. It does not just mean "grown without artificial chemicals." Depending on where you obtain your food, the label 'organic' can mean one of three things:

1: It has been inspected and certified as being organic by a bunch of tree-hugging hippie nut jobs with no scientific background.

2: It has been inspected and certified as being organic by a profit-making (and therefore probably untrustworthy) corporation, or simply labelled organic by the person or shop selling it.

3: It has been inspected and certified as being organic by a non-profit organisation which bases its standards on the latest scientific thinking, in order to improve human and animal health and welfare, with a view towards long term sustainability in the way we eat. A good example of such a charity is The Soil Association (www.soilassociation.org).
Proper organic farming does not use artificial chemical fertilisers, instead building soil fertility through crop rotations and other SCIENTIFIC techniques, particularly the use of clover that fixes nitrogen naturally from the atmosphere using the Sun’s energy and photosynthesis.

If the government subsidised organic farming as much as it subsidised regular farming, organic fruit and veg would probably be cheaper.

A food grown without and pesticides or chemicals in it's presence, basically the biggest sham in the world economy today besides As Seen on TV crap.
Guy 1-"Hey I just went to that new organic market in town."
Guy 2-"How was it?"
Guy 1-"Everything was almost double the price than at the grocery store and everyone there looked stoned."
Guy 2-" Yeah, I just clean the stuff I get from Stop & Shop, it's fine then."
