I've just asked a fellow T-BBSer for a recipe and this started us talking about organic produce and products and the reasons for choosing these. Personally I'm not religious about it, but I do buy the organic product whenever I have the choice. The reasons I buy organic are: I believe we have a responsibility to future generations; they too should live in a bio-diverse world where they can actually drink from wells and streams without fear of poisoning themselves (or indeed: a need to clean industrial waste out of our water supply). It usually tastes better than 'conventional' products. when given a choice, lab-animals eat organic and who are we to argue with nature? Organic products contain more of the nutritionally desirable compounds and less of the nutritionally undesirable compounds. Organic produce isn't dipped in poison-wax; you don't need to peel off the outer layer and can even use the peels in your cooking without any danger to yourself! How about you? -how organic do you live? -why?/why not?
