    Lightbulb Organic vs. Non-Organic

    Many times I have read that Organic food is better for us, if one consider eating raw food, than we should consider of eating organic. Because our bodies get detox and also purified by this organic product which is higher quality in uncooked food vegetables and fruit which will not include with chemical agent. Therefore indirectly we are consuming them all the chemical fertilizers. But again this set live might not suits everyone because its rather expensive and also if you come from a low income group of people. But what do you think of this ,eating organic and non organic food? Or maybe all these are just a marketing strategies.

    Jeg er over gjennomsnittet bitter, og liker stort sett ingen andre enn meg selv

    I try to consumme as much organic as possible, but like you say it is really expensive. Everything is already too expensive as it is, let alone organics that cost 5 times more than regular products.
    Plus, I do not trust that anything is purely organic in Greece, because the quality control is really inadequate. I have friends working in the Agricultural department of the University and they've told me that most 'organic' farms have figured ways to spray their plants with fertilizers but in a way that they're non-detectable, etc.
    A lot of restaurants that claim to use organic first materials, also, have been found not to.

    So, in the end of the day, much as I say I prefer organics, I don't really know whether what I eat is organic or not.

    Do You Ever Buy/Eat Organic Food?

    I buy organic milk and eggs, as well as meat from untreated animals. When it comes to fruits and vegetables, I buy them at the regular grocer. It's cheaper and you could always wash them or peal off the skins to avoid ingesting lingering pesticides.

    We eat almost all organic, we raise most of our own food. The things we do buy like chicken we buy from organic farmers.

    The food taste better and is better for you.

    We get eggs from a neighbour who keeps chickens in his garden so they're free range and organic. Milk gets delivered by a milkman (very traditional but dying out) every morning, not organic but from local farms. Fruit and veg we get locally, though a mixture of organic and non organic produce. The meat we buy is locally sourced from Yorkshire farms through a local butcher but non organic.

    Incidentally, I'm not against Genetic Modification of fruit and vegetables if it helps grow stronger, pest free crops in arid areas etc. The jury remains out on GM of animals though.

    that's great, I live right by Chicago so it's extremely hard to plant anything. we get fumes from cars, neighbors constantly spraying their lawns with pesticide/herbicide/fertilizer, stupid people complaining when my plants get too big... one day I'll have my own farm, I'm sick of living near the city.

    We grow our own fruit and veg, and my girlfriend and her family, who do so also, keep their own live stock. Primarily chickens.

    It gives you a great sense of self reliance and oneness with nature.

    I will agree there is a lot of hype about GMOs when it comes to plants. Before I was a Blacksmith I was a Horticulturalist(worked and taught for several Universities). Humans have been genetically been modifying plants through seed selection and cross pollination since we first starting growing crops.

    The bad thing about the current methods is that they are developing plants that produce only sterile seeds. There is no danger or eating these plants it is consumer/commercial driven. Most of this applies to grain and cereal crops, not so much for vegetables and fruits.

    What is bad is that their are companies that are playing on peoples fears and using the GMO hype to sell heirloom seeds. This hype buying is real bad in the conspiracy theorist circles. When you have guys like Alex Jones promoting heirloom non-modified seeds you have to look at things in a practical and skeptical manner. I'm not saying that everything that Jones is saying is wrong, but he is a hype monger and is trying to make a buck.

    I checked into these non-GMO seeds and they are the same as any mail order garden supply sells. The genus, species, and variety are exactly the same. The only difference is the cost, you will pay up to ten times more for the hype.

    Living on the countryside has many advantages, and one of them is that you can buy your meat directly at the local butchers and your bread, vegetables and fruits at local markets likewise. Less of our food comes from the super market. But even most super market chains buy and sell local products. For example, a large super market chain sells meat and baked goods from the region only. "Buy regional!" is definately a trend here.

    Admittedly, I don't think I have ever bought organic/local once in my life. I love. The big city with our concrete, smog, and lights. I am certainly one for the high life and such. I eat out almost every meal because I never learned to cook.
