    Organic foods aren't better in appearance, flavor, nor nutritional value. Organic is about avoiding man-made chemicals that that may slowly poison you. Pesticides are watered down nerve agents. Too high of a dose and you will literally shit yourself.
    There are many ingredients added to foods in the US that are illegal to add to foods in other countries. I don't understand why anyone would risk their long term health by eating foods that contain some of these ingredients.
