  • I heard organic is artificially produced (not naturally grown and not that healthy since never found on the preirie), the others say it has been grown in the best conditions with no additives (pesticides etc.) Am not sure which to go for. Sorry.

  • Yes, the difference is in the cost, quality and quantity!! Organic foods are more expensive, have less quality, and are less available than their "mass produced" non-organic counterparts. Organic is soooo overrated. We grow organic for free....in our back yard....would never PAY for organic foods from the supermarket or farmer's market!! :o)

  • I want to learn more differences but so far I know that the big difference is that non organic seeds are genetically modified and the dna of the foods are altered as a result. It causes more birth defects, faster growth spurts in humans, and diseases (remember the yrs no one could eat the tomatoes/peanut butter/strawberries/etc - every yr its something new). Why b/c the chemicals that they spray the plants with do not always mix with nature, and the government keeps experimenting with our food w/o our permission or knowledge. Even our meats get poisoned b/c they feed the cattle the same crops they feed us with - corn! Well I have a little more info, but I really want to learn what you ladies have found out about the TRU differences.

  • LoriKeet where did you learn that from???? Have you ever researched the difference for yourself instead of just looking at the obvious price differnce? I mean if you did, let me know your sources so I can be more aware for my own family. The more I dig deeper on the food issues the more I lean towards organics.

    Wait...you don't actually know what the pros and cons of organics are, and yet you're running around here for 2 days screaming at people because they don't convert to organics? It really is turning into a religion, isn't it?

  • like I said...IGNORANT, yet NOT SUPPRISING. Whats turning into a religion is you bitching every time someone asks a question that you disagree with. Plenty of other moms on here disagree peacefully but you always resort to name calling and derogatory statements. WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH BY CONTINUING TO NASTY??? Id like to know.
