Just thought it might be kind of fun to have a roundtable discussion on organic foods. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Here goes: I tend to think that organic foods are good and will eat them over chemichally enhanced ones when I can. The reasons for this being that I usually like the flavor and texture of organic,don't really have a great urge to consume weed killer and pesticide, like to support the "small market" farmer, and don't really think that chemicals are enviromentally desireable. I also can see how a out and out ban on using chemicals on foods might help third world countries whose farmers can't afford the latest technology to stay competitive in the world market, thus helping remove them from poverty. I can see one glaring downside to all organic. I think that I read in Scientific American or Nature that the world could not be feed if we stopped with the growth enhancers. And this on top of the worlds current famine issues. I'm also concerned that organic farming takes up a lot of land that is needed for trees, people, and large gigs. Just interested on hearing other peoples takes on the issue.
