I was totally sceptical about organic, but am totally converted now. Yes there are some use of pesticides, mostly ingredients that can occur naturally. Its not just about taste difference, but most organic definitely tastes better. The only downside is cost difference, but there are some ways to shop smart for some things.

Ebola is natural, would you be happy if that was sprayed on your produce?

From the link: ​"Have you ever seen that amazing video where two Dutch guys get “expert” taste testers the latest in organic food, but it actually turns out to be McDonalds? Go watch it, it’s hilarious, and really highlights just how powerful the placebo effect is.

This placebo effect has been demonstrated time and time again, in wine, in vodka, and now in organic produce. Marketing strategies and social pressures play a huge role in determining what we buy and what are preferences are. It’s normal to assume a more expensive bottle of wine tastes better than a cheap one, and to assume expensive organic produce tastes better than the conventional alternative. The only way to truly determine if there is a difference is by using blind testing. The conclusion: no significant difference could be found between conventional and organic produce."

Unless you are growing your own produce, and therefore know for sure no "chemicals" have been used, then the only reason uy organic is to get rid of some extra cash you have laying around. Speaking as someone who works in a shop, I can tell you that the organic industry is definitely a "for profit" business - regular cucumbers: 49p, organic ones (which generally tend to be slightly smaller, but otherwise indistinguishable): 99p! It's an absolute rip off, and it makes me so angry when I see customers complaining about food prices going up, but then buy "organic" because it's healthier! oO
