    Organic does not necessarily mean more healthy. The labeling rules for “organic” are not particularly stringent in many areas. Basically, the producers have found a way to dupe the unwary into paying more money for something.

    My impression is that they’ve gotten less lax. In IL, across the river from us, the requirement is that no pesticides can be used on a patch of ground for five years before something grown on it can be called organic. That’s a big commitment for any farmer to make.

    I also think competition has brought down prices around here. Used to be that organic commanded a 3x-5x premium over “normal”. Now it’s more like 50%.
