Here ya go,..Do with it what you will
Organic foods: Are they safer? More nutritious? - MayoClinic.com
If the food is no more nutritious (it's proven not to be) and no more safe (it's proven not be) or no less harmful to the environment (it's proven not to be) than why would I pay more? In fact organics have been proven to be MORE HARMFUL in regards to contaminants in many cases.
Now, I might pay more for locally grown food because it is good to help local small business. I like that. I will pay a bit more for that when and if I can. THAT makes me feel good. But, I dont expect it's any better for me or the earth than the food I buy at the market. It's just better for small business. i am IN small business so I get that.
I don't think about it that much,..I buy from farmers market from time to time.
I get alot of free fruit from a guy at work. One of his best friends works for a big packing house here in Fresno and he always bringing
stuff. I got a bunch of plums today.
Every time I crack an egg now I take note of the interior skin thickness and try to ascertain if there is any discernible difference between a brown and a white. Thanks Mike.
Me and my wife walked past the farmers market and stopped to watch the catfish salesman bash the hell out of a catfish for a customer.
