I would pull this bit out of the organic article: "Also, there is not sufficient research on the long-term effects of pesticides on human health," he added.

My reason for going organic when I can afford it and want to (strawberries, for example, which are VERY difficult to get the pesticides off of) is a concern over cancer, rather than a belief that the fruit itself has more nutrients. I suspect the jury is out on this one for awhile.

Was at the farmers' market this weekend, and found an organic stand with corn that was wormy and nasty (like, I peeled back the husk and found a live worm), vs. the conventional stand with nice plump kernels and no critters. Corn goes in boiling water, which I assume will remove the pesticides, so I bought conventional. We usually do conventional, actually, due to the cost. But on items that are just too difficult to wash, that's a bit different.

I will pay extra for organic eggs, though that's generally because I'm hoping the chickens are treated better. And milk, because I don't want the hormones they inject into the cows. I remember what it was like to be engorged while I was nursing my daughter, and the fact that dairy cows are supremely engorged (and thus in a lot of pain and prone to infection, meaning more antibiotics) makes me willing to pay more for organic. I don't expect that the milk is more nutritious, however.

Now to read the shopping article, which I assume will make me feel superior in many ways, as while I like new clothes, I'm not a huge fan of the shopping, and prefer to keep my money.
