It's actually a rip off. Most of the time it's just sold as "organic" when truth be told it's just in fancy or organic packaging. Also I've never understood why the price is so high, I mean they don't do anything special and it doesn't contain chemicals and things like that so surely it means it costs less to produce and sell? It's quite funny really. ~Joey

Actually I said "one" thing. Which you corrected me on, however I stated I thought it was rip off and you can't correct that. Your comments regarding that doesn't mean either of are "correct" or "wrong" because at the end of the day they are my views. As angst wasn't it you shooting your mouth off? Lastly for the record, I'm not angry or bothered and you should think about this before trying to say someone is. ~Joey P.s I don't expect you to do anything. flaws are on both side grubby hands, you should realize your not so perfect yourself and drop it. I'm a teen, your a grown man. Good bye

I think it is worth it to buy Organic food if you can afford it. Problem is who can really afford it. I try buy organic when I can as I don't think all the pestisides can be good for you.

the supermarket has sells organic food. why people are nowadays getting motivated to buy costly organic food?i think the main reason is organic food is the food growing without use of any chemical insecticides or pesticides.

Yes, it would be a wiser choice to pick organic and natural foods over processed and frozen foods. They are better for the body because they help regulate the digestive tract. Organic and natural foods take a longer time to digest into the body. As a result, you won't get hungry as often. In my opinion, the food is better quality in taste and nutrition. Refer to the discussion below on why organic foods are a better choice. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1076014.aspx

I don't know the prices in your country, but in Denmark arganic food is not much more expencive than "normal" food. But if you want to buy some organic food, let it be the met, egg and milk, because this is where the bad stuff can be stored. For fruit and vegestables (don't know how it's spelled) the organic food has up to 25% more vitamins and minerals compared to "normal" food. Take a look at these funnies: www.themeatrix.com

i think, yes. it can be a little expensive but i think it it good also. it is my opinion, i m not saying it that it is very good thing and oneshould stick to it only. i think it is good and i think it is a bit healthy too. Organic food is known to contain fifty percent more nutrients, mineral and vitamins. trust me, when once you try some organic produce and taste an apple the way it should be and perhaps how you recall it tasting in your youth you will never go back to mass produced fruit again. Sure, there are issues with availability and cost but with a bit of reserch you should be able to find local stores who stock organic produce. Pesticides in food have been linked to many diseases including cancer, obesity altzheimer's and some birth defects too.

Because of the fact that food produced by the artificial supporting method are not that much health friendly as compared with organic food. These organic food reduce the risk of health as well as environmental hazards. Their cultivation process is carried out by natural substances, not with help of artificial ones. That is why these cost a little more. Anyway, I think this will be the food of future and the cultivation process will be also the process of future, promoting good health for all as well as good environment in a Nature friendly manner. Thanks.

Yes its worth it mostly for people who are health conscious or are healing themselves of sickness. Sometimes, what medication cant heal, healthy organic foods definitely can. That's why its better to spend on them so they can be cured.
