Shouldn't Organic be Cheaper?

People are too worried about Calorie count, they've forgotten the importance of ingredient choice. How many people actually know what went into a burger patty? And how many people would continue eating a burger patty if they knew it contained over 80 different animal [products] from all over the world? How many would eat meat from cows that were fed engineered corn or processed meal? These are the same people that source the market for foods that have less additives and artificial sweeteners. But didnt know it's fed to the animals that become the meat they consume as well. Ultimately, defeating the purpose.
It's interesting how food that had nothing added to it is more expensive then the junk that has been processed with stuff we can't even pronounce. Locally grown and fresh should be less expensive because our human biological structure craves it. And it would be, if people would stop denoting "unhealthy" as calories! Calories are only used or unused energy. It's ingredients that make us sick. And, Instead of worrying about labeling food with a calorie count at restaurants and fast food joints, they should be listing precise ingredients on a label.

Its not like that... Who produce thing look only at what they have the most and most cheaper(those two goes well together) gold would be cheap if we have it on every corner.

Hey. Organic foods are expensive because they give a much lower Yield. So there is a lot less of it.

You only live once. Life is too short to worry about all that shit. Eat a burger wit extra bacon and just be happy you ain't eating rice like Ethiopian mine workers. If you find this offensive, you have not one funny bone in your body. Yall be easy, work hard and eat whatever you want.

Hey... Don't get me wrong I love burgers too. I just love being healthy more. I'm not a vegan, I'm actually Samoan! And if anyone knows Samoans... They know we some meat eating people! I just think people should be more aware of what goes in their food, and how we're suffering because we don't "really" know...Just like any one would want to know if someone slipped something in their drink... without their knowledge :-) i mean, i'd wanna know!

But you can live a longer life if you eat healthy.

I think it is because of this: let's say a farm is big enough for 100 chicken. If they are bio they take normal time to grow up. But if they're fed with the stuff you've mentioned, it takes three times less time for them to grow. So instead of 100 chicken, the farmer sells 300 (in case of McDonald's cows it is millions a day) so he can sell them for cheaper. Also Dejan put it right about the gold.

Because of economies of scale perhaps?

My dad specifically buys cows from farmers that don't use all these hormones to make the cows grow faster.
