First of all, what is organic?
Why is organic good?
"better for the environment and kinder to animals". Organic foods are produced with only natural products and natural fertilizers, such as manure. They do not have added pesticides or hormones, either. The lack of these engineered substances keeps the environment more natural and less contaminated.
The fact that "[f]armers who grow organic produce and meat don't use conventional methods to fertilize, control weeds or prevent livestock disease" sheds a new light on the agriculture industry. More creative methods are created to keep farming clean and nature-friendly, while also getting the best product out to the consumers.
Why is organic bad?
A huge factor in deciding whether organic or regular is better for is the fact that vegetables, fruits, and meats vary immensely even within their own group. One carrot may have more nutritional value than another carrot from the same field. Comparing organic vs. non-organic in only nutritional value isn't an effective way of comparing them.
One can't use 'organic' as the "sole criteria for judging nutritional quality".
I think the fact that organic foods are more expensive makes sense. I feel like organic foods are a higher quality than regular foods, since they were made so naturally and those pesticides and fertilizers and hormone's to make animals and plants ridiculously repellant and huge—respectively—aren't going into me. They may be completely harmless, but I'd prefer to eat organically; if given the choice, I would choose organic.
