Do you prefer organic food from what markets regardless of the price?
Consumer Reports recently rated markets of all types in current 2015 issue and revealed excellent information. Many markets received very low scores. Most organic markets received high ratings.
Yes, for several reasons.
I remember not believing that organic was better for a long time. Then, the grocery store had a sale on -- of all things -- organic lettuce. It tasted so much better than the regular stuff, I said "damn it, it does taste better!" After that, it depends on where I shop what I get, but organic is generally better tasting. My husband who would be the first to ditch organic over conventional because of price HATES conventional food when we eat it. Says its tasteless and fatty. So, there you go.
I also believe it is better for you nutritionally and health-wise. For a long time, we'd get sick from conventional food fairly regularly. Not so with organic and naturally grown food with minimal pesticides. We both believe that ingesting food that has a fair amount of pesticide can't be good for you, which is why we try to be very careful in what we eat.
nope, i never buy organic food because it is way too expensive. The same amount of item but difference in price, my hubby hit the roof when he saw the price tag
I buy organic selectively. For example, I almost always buy organic zucchini, yellow squash, apples, corn and potatoes, because conventional brands tend to have much higher levels of pesticides in them, or because there's a possibility they might be genetically modified. I prefer to avoid the pesticides and the GMOs.
On the other hand, because of the way pesticides are applied to them, I feel fine buying conventional bananas and avocados for the moment.
Given a choice, and a narrow price difference, I will usually choose to pay a tiny bit more for organic. If the price difference is large, my choice is between conventional, and going without. Sometimes, going without wins.
I should also add that I have a very tight budget, and I still manage to eat organic foods. I'm vegan, which means most of what I put into my body is vegetables, grains and legumes. It's not really that difficult to make organic foods the priority within my budget constraints. Many stores now offer their own brands of organics that are cost effective.
I would LOVE to buy only organic produce. Sadly, it is well outside of our meager budget.
It truly galls me that healthy food costs less than mass-produced junk!
Generally I get organic if it is root grown. If the prices are equal I will get organic also. Since the water companies in America put Fluoride and Arsenic into the general water supply we all are being poisoned slowly regardless of what we eat. The water they use to water the food had poison in it, the water we use to cook it has poison in it. So we are set on the path of destruction. My daughter says that it is the way the USA has decided to control their population. The government states that the small percent means nothing but add that small percentage to everything we water including our mouth, food we eat and washing and you have a vast amount of poison we are getting. Ever wonder why the kidneys and liver is going ill for so many? It was Gods was to help us combat poison but when you have it in everything they have to work over time to get rid of it and I don't think it is that easy to get rid of the poisons they use.
By the way fluoride does not help your teeth either.

Now there are some people who are starting to combat the deadly poison in their own drinking water. The show Arsenic and Old Lace wasn't a myth but a warning!
Some ways to start removing the Arsenic that the government requires even bottle water to put into our water.
There is also a way to remove fluoride

If the organic dealers and growers have these methods it would definitely be better for all of us to use organic.
I also use Violet Flame to negate the affects of poisons in the food and water that I can't control.
Thanks for all the comments. it is so sad that countries cannot use food and water that is good for the general population. All the additives do is ruin health. We must be informed. The FDA says GMOs are safe, but do we believe the FDA? .
Yes! I also grow a garden, but don't have everything I want--apples, for example. I much prefer the taste of an organically grown fruit over a forced-growth, sprayed version any day. I hope to see an abundance of organically grown produce in the markets during the coming decades.
Yes, I prefer all natural foods, and predominately shop the perimeter of the store when I am in a supermarket.

Would you buy organic food if it cost the same as non-organic food?

Is there truly organic food or is it the mere assumption of semi-organic food on the planet? I would question that while prices of all organic food ranges from store to store, all food is of organic nature. Why have organic food so expensive that people that need it the most and are the most at...

Do you make it a point to buy organic food?

Organic food spoils faster, due to lack of preservatives, right/ So if one decides to "Go Organic", do they need to shop every other day to keep unrotton food in the house?
