Organic foods always seems to be a hot topic. There are studies that say eating only organic will make you healthier, and others that say there is no proven benefit. There are people who are more than willing to cough up some extra dough for organic, while others think the prices are too high and not worth the money. I think the organic divide will continue for years. So a new survey chose to find out from those who are already in the pro-organic camp and routinely purchase organic, why they do, and for those who don’t, why not.
The survey results show that most people buy organic for health reasons (in the USA and Australia), whereas few people buy organic to ensure improved conditions for farm workers. Customers in the UK are less likely to buy organic because of the high cost. Concern for environmental safeguarding, taste, and animal welfare fall in the middle.

So now I want to hear from you. Do you buy organic? If so, why? If not, why not?
