Why Buy Organic Food?

If you're buying organic food for health reasons, there's not a whole lot of scientific evidence to support you. In fact, according to a report at the BBC, UK environment secretary David Miliband said this week that there's no "conclusive evidence either way" when it comes to the health advantages of organics.

Of course, there are other advantages. For example, the lack of pesticides in organic farming is easier on the environment, and consequently, the creatures living therein (like you, me and our four, six or eight-legged friends).

Miliband's remarks came in response to a "Soil Association" estimate that £1.6 billion worth of organic food was sold in the UK this year, an increase of 30 percent.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
