    I voted yes, but it's strictly on a financial basis since organic works out a whole load more expensive than regular pumped full of crap food.

    I read somewhere that it's more important to eat the meat, veg and dairy as organic, as long as you got those ones covered then even if you don't switch to organic pasta and the rest, you are getting the most benefit.

    Looks like you're gonna die soon, or at least have painful kidney stones.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Ideally, I would like to phase into eating all organic.

    But right now, it's just whatever's at Randall's (their generic organics).

    oh yes... my quirky prolonged suicide plan will be a success. i find that other vegans/raw foodists (for the most part) tend to be preoccupied with ideas of immortality. obviously not actual immortality, but i talked to one raw foodist who believes that he will live into his 150's.

    I only buy organic meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables. It's not so expensive as I'm only buying for one. I'm not OTT about it though, I eat non-organic produce when I'm dining out.

    I like Lateralus's answer. Isn't all food organic?

    But to answer in a non-smartass way: I only buy organic when it comes to animal products. Plant matter, I get whatever looks good, whether it's organic or conventional. But I do a lot of my shopping at a co-op so much of it tends to organic anyway.

    Depending on the type of food (e.g. some animal products), I prefer organic. Majority: no.
