Talk organic to me.

I buy organic where possible. However a friend I was talking to this morning says her sister (admittedly a vegetarian, but not sure that matters)says that organic meat/poultry and therefore dairy is a no-no because they don't treat them for worms and other infestations/illnesses as they can't give them antibiotics and other medication. So we should buy "free-range" instead. Is this total twaddle or is there some truth in this?

Yep, think there is some truth in this.

Was article in Times and Observer a while back. But, I forget the facts... Also articles in Ecologist online, perhaps.

But, we cook meat so must be ok, no? (am thinking about how rare my roast was a few weeks ago and worrying now). Chicken always well cooked so that's OK. Beef free range anyway. But eggs, organic eggs taste so much nicer.

A veg friend said to me that I shouldn't eat carrots raw if organic as may be parasites in them. I carried on munching away and am still here to tell the tale so...

Yes beef does concern me most now, as I have mine rare when doing roast and "blue" for steak (actually I pretty much just wave my steak at the pan then eat it grin)

So which is better for us overall then organic or not?
