Organic foods is for elitist's. It requires more acreage, and is less productive. A starving world can do without hippie commune gardens.

So lets eat saturated fats and prossed food the heart doctors will love that keep them in the money while we die of heart attacks,high colesteral and high blood pressure got to keep them field for tobacco so we dont lose are smokes. Shame on them for bringing in organic foods your food stamps dont buy that they want you to die young so you will save them billions. SHAME ON YOU!!! Your train of thought is why people in this town looks much older than what they are.

you know if you just stop and think a minute, you would realize that as children most of us never heard of all this sickness. People grew their own food,processed it and put it up. Now everything is prcessed and you can't recognize most of the ingredients. So organic sounds like the way to go to me, especially since home grown taste way better.

I'm a doctor and I have never heard of the lipod profile. Interesting. You sound like you may be a little more lucky than smart, but to each his own.

We grow our own veggies. We are lucky that we have the "know how" and the work ethic to do it. It's the best food ever. I can't get over how expensive "fresh" vegetables are at the grocery store. It is ridiculous. What is more ridiculous is how bad that stuff tastes. It is not really very fresh at all. Freshness is the key to delicious eating. "Eating in season" is how the old-timey people did it around here. Eat winter vegetables in cold weather and summer vegetables in hot weather. Any one who has room for a flowerbed can have room for a small vegetable garden instead. The satisfaction of putting your own food on the table is wonderful, not to mention the money you will save at the grocery store.

In almost every taste test regular consumers and even professional chefs can't taste the difference in organic and conventional foods.
You think it tastes better because you WANT it to. Take a blind taste test yourself. There is also NO nutritional benefit in eating organic food.

Our homegrown veggies don't really qualify as organic....organic vegetables are supposedly grown without chemical fertilizer or any kind of insecticide. Those with the organic label are far to expensive for average Americans to afford. Also, many of the veggies at the grocery store come from outside the U.S. and who knows if it is really organic?
