You might also want to look at the environmental impact. Soil health is better with traditional no-till methods as compared to organic farming.
Yield per acre is also higher with traditional methods. This means more forests must be cleared and more wetlands must be destroyed to produce the same about of food using organic methods as compared to traditional methods.
Someday, the organic scam will collapse under its own hubris.
What the organic label does provide (at least in regulatory theory) over typical food from your local grocer is free of GMOs and big corporate agriculture toxic chemicals, drugs, hormones, and other additives. NOT necessarily better "nutrition". In other words .... "traditional" farming methods are basically "organic" farming methods. Unfortunately, many people confuse modern "corporate" methods as "traditional".
You might want to click on the permaculture link in my user signature area to learn more about "beyond organic" so that someday, some people will learn that there are methods far superior (or better quality) to even "traditional" (or organic) farming methods.
For now, unless you have access to traditional no-till or better quality permaculture food .... stick to organic food from your local grocer or farmer's market. Avoid the toxic chemicals, drugs, hormones, and GMOs.
