It appears that bona fide organically-produced stuff brings with it some health benefits. What I find interesting is that something labeled "organic" often doesn’t taste as good as something grown locally. I saw a TV spot about this recently. It pointed out that organic produce is often shipped long distances like any other produce you find in the supermarket. Thus, organic tomatoes may be no tastier than the ordinary stuff. Indeed, they may have been grown on side-by-side plots on the other side of the country–they both will have little taste by the time they get here. The only difference is that you’ll pay dearly for the organic one. I love fruits and vegetables…I REALLY love the stuff that’s produced locally and try to support the farmers who grow it. To my way of thinking, local and tasty trumps organic and tasteless every time. Of course, if there were local, organic producers available, that might be another story.
