Organically mass produced foods do not have superior flavor.

The superior flavor rests with foods that have been bred for flavor rather than thick skins or the ability to withstand bruising or the ability to ripen after being seperated from the mother plant.

You will not find the tasty varieties in stores because they neither transport nor store well.

You might find them on farmer's markets - or not.

Did you know that many veggies are sweet, like fruit, and that fruit are many times sweeter than you have tasted?

I'm not trying to convince anyone that organic is right or wrong for them. I have made a personal decision for myself after considering my own circumstances.

I was trying to find the right way of expressing it and I may have failed. What I was getting at was the idea that humans rationally justify decisions after they are made and that it is the fear of being wrong that drives people to convince others.

A rational decision has to take into account your personal circumstances. If you're desperately trying to feed a large family on a very limited budget then you could make a very rational case for prioritising nutritional content or quantity over organic for example. My point is that it's not up to me or anyone else to say that doing so is right or wrong.
I wasn't commenting on your reasoning as a whole. Just that statement you made, as I could just as easily go into a pro-organic food thread and say, "Often threads like these are started by people trying to convince themselves that their choice to spend extra money on organic foods can be rationally justified and don't want to think that they may be wrong."

As far as you eating organic, go for it. It's your life, do whatever works best for you. And I'll do the same.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

And you'd probably be right.

RE: The Truth about Organic Farming
Just noticed my post re: psychological: did not post for some reason.
Any way..... Buying organic *could* be psychological and we cannot know the full benefits of that..


So.....
The human mind etc etc

RE: The Truth about Organic Farming
In my experience proper organic food doesn't come in a green packet with "Organic!" on the front, it comes from small local farms and markets, and of course your own garden.

I for one fully support the use of GMO's.

Everyone does, those who do not are ignorant of what a GMO is.

And don't trust anyone who calls them "Frankenstein foods". It shows a shocking lack of knowledge of both science & literature. They should more accurately be called "Jurassic Park foods."

Hate the belief, love the believer.

Golden Rice could have ended Famine worldwide but the fluff brain anti-science hippies have made it so that nobody is willing to eat it.
