First off, thank you Mark Sisson, for providing this great site. After reading through it, I find myself being steered toward a more PB-compliant lifestyle.
My question to you is: why do you support organic food? The data that is out there suggests that organic food has little if any nutritional benefit over conventionally grown food. It is true that SOME organic crops are higher in antioxidants, but that is due to those plants mitigating damage from insects.
Just to clarify, organic farming methods are the OLD way, the inefficient way that we grew crops before technology gave us SAFE synthetic pesticides and resilient gene-enhanced crops that yield abundantly.
Organic pesticides can be lethally toxic to human beings and the environment, but the EPA has clearly stated that residue from synthetic pesticides like DDVP (not to be confused with DDT) poses no health threat to either. I tend to trust the EPA. I've drank tap water all my life and it has yet to make me sick.
I've even tried eating some organic produce from Whole Foods, and was not impressed by the taste. I also have notably little concern for the "small farmer" or Al Gore or Greenpeace.
I really want to commit to the PB, but I'm just not sold on organic food yet.
