How many of you are there, and where do you live??

Buying "organic" is alright, when you can afford it, that is.  One thing I've always wondered about "organic" produce--if one grower/farmer is using "organic" methods on his land, what happens to the "organic-ness" if his neighbor isn't doing the same and uses pesticides, herbicides, etc. and the wind blows?? ???

Also, I've read somewhere (please don't ask me where as I don't remember) that eating organic food is NOT necessarily more healthy for you than non-organic food.

Apart from that...yeah...something IS wrong when it costs more to use less.
