Today's "organic" label of food is definitely not like how it used to be in the 60's when it first started out in San Francisco with the hippies. It began with this chick growing lettuce in her own field, which got popular. Naturally, an entrepreneur came knocking at her door, wondering if she'd allow his business to take over selling this "organic" lettuce to the rest of the U.S. Sounds a lot like the industrial food industry, doesn't it?
If you want to know if these organic foods are better for you, you should find out where it's made, how it's made, and how they keep the food fresh to sell it. If it's not grown within a few hours distance of the place it's selling it to you, it's probably not as organic, or healthy, as you may think.
If you want to learn more about "organic" food, or just food in general, you should read The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. I have never thought of food the same way after reading it. Fantastic book and easy to read.
