Just to add: I think there are some very good reasons for choosing organic food: it may reduce food miles, it's likely to be grown by small operations rather than massive monoculture farms, it reduces environmental damage through pesticides (e.g. eutrophication), it reduces the monopoly of big producers and keeps specialist food operations going, and so on. There are often animal welfare benefits compared to more intensive farming/

But it's more expensive, it's not any better for you, and I'd like to see someone prove it tastes any better in a blind taste test.
