With me, I have so many bills. I am like everybody else I can't afford to buy organic. I turned 50 in 2009 and if not buying organic was going to kill me it would have done it already. Personally, I have tried a few things organic like bananas. They don't taste any different.

Well, I like to think that every little bit counts. I just think what pesticides and other chemicals do to bugs, and when I imagine eating that kind of crap, I don't feel very good.
Besides, usually you can find a lot of organic produce wich is also grown locally... so buying that is doing two good things at once.

I try to buy organic when available, but I don't believe the farming chemical industry is as big and bad and scary as organic growers/companies would like you to believe - especially now-a-days.

There was a Bullsh*t (Penn & Teller on Showtime) episode on it with studies showing this & that. All I remember is that I wasn't as anal about buying organic afterward. =)

Well, I do agree that organics are expensive. But when you do a little research online and you see how many poison you're ingesting with your non-organic tomatoes, bell peppers and lettuce for example, you really think that your health is worth it.
We did some math here at home and figure out that if we cook at home instead of eating out, or if we buy less junk (like chips or sugary snacks, like those extra expensive 100 cal snacks), we would be able to buy everything organic. We also think we might save on our medical bills on the long run.
It might be a matter of making a shift on your life style. And we're doing it for our health.

Does anyone try and buy organic foods? What do you think about them?

I just bought a bunch at HEB and my bill was outrageous! Is it really worth it?
