  • I don't think everything you buy needs to be organic but as far as fruits and veggies I think it is important. Like carrots and grapes. If it doesn't have thick skin like oraganges then yes I buy organic I don't like the taste on regular grapes. I like the organic ones so much better.

  • Nope, because there is no regulations on what is considered "organic", and food companies can put a sticker on it and charge double for it.

  • I prefer to buy organic when its is possible and when the price is somewhat comparable to regular. I always buy organic milk though, regardless of price.

  • If it's certified organic then yes their is proof....there are tight regulations, so for grains and such yes I get certified organic because that also means NO GMO's!

    I buy organic as much as possible, including beef, poultry.....I grow a lot of my own veggies from organic seed and visit local organic farmers

  • there are regulations, well there are in the UK anyway. that's why you get 'organic' and '100% organic', because when it's labelled just 'organic' (only) at least a certain amount of the ingredients have to be organic.

    I don't really think the word 'believe' really should be the question but yes I do buy organic food when it's not too much a price increase but I don't go out and buy only organic food if I can get it non organic for much cheaper or more easily obtain the non organic food then I'll happilty buy the non organic ones.
