There is a lot of hoo-haa about 'organic' foodstuffs I do agree. It's one of those cases where you have to use a bit of common sense to decide whether over-use of pesticides and fertilisers are causing more damage to the environment than the benfit gained from the crop yields. I have never understood why organic food has been 'advertised' as being better for you, other than it not being full of hormones or covered in pesticides. What really matters for food is it's freshness, even tho' it is true that food is 'made' from what feeds it, a natural chemical is the same as a manufactured one as far as the plant is concerned. That said, I just had a cheese and tomato sandwich made with tomatoes that were growing in my neighbours greenhouse this morning - they taste fantastic; the supermarkets red-bags-of-tasteless-water just do not compare!
