I recently made a trip out to California to visit some family. My family over there eats organic when they can and it made for some interesting conversation. I personally do not eat organic for many reasons. At the same time, I am an animal lover. I love animals and have a respect for them that most people do not. When my cousin asked me if I felt bad for the chickens that live a crappy life before they come to my plate I said no, not at all. What is the big stink about eating organic? Why do people feel sorry for an animal that would not exist if it wasn't for demand? And for the record, I obviously do not eat organic but I do not look at it as a lesser choice. I am not claiming one is better then the other, they are just different. To each his own. Discuss.
