I grew up in the countryside where the food was mostly organic, grown locally and tasted like they are supposed to.
Now we choose carefully and mostly ethically sourced, organic if possible, and very rarely processed.
We also don't drink tap water, we use bottled mineral and spring water for drinks and cooking and recently when trying dairy alternatives like various
soya milks which contain tap water, got stomach cramps and literal burning feeling, I felt ill for at least a week.
This report today in the UK agrees organic is a safer and healthier option.
(Reuters) - Organic produce and meat typically isn't any better for you than conventional food when it comes to vitamin and nutrient content, although
it does generally reduce exposure to pesticides and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to a U.S. study.
