This is what I get worried about when big businesses want to take over the definition of "organic foods" while lobbying Congress.
"What is Organic? Powerful Players Want a Say" (NY Times, free reg required)
"The debate has been under way for several years. But last week, Senate and House Republicans on the Agriculture appropriations subcommittee inserted a last-minute provision into the department's fiscal 2006 budget specifying that certain artificial ingredients could be used in organic food."
It leaves a question in your mind, how organic is organic when you're paying at least 20% more for food at places like Whole Foods.
