Organic Foods Survey Reveals The Real Dirt

MINNEAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American parents aren’t kidding around: They want more organic foods available in their kids’ cafeterias.

According to a survey by Music Matters, a marketing firm that represents various organic foods products, 53 percent of parents wish their kid’s cafeteria served organic products.

That’s not the only dirt harvested by the poll: While 57 percent of both parents and childless folks claim they are worried about pesticides, 30 percent trust the government to regulate chemicals and 13 percent say their philosophy is “What I don’t know won’t hurt me.”

Meanwhile, 34 percent say they feel organic foods are worth paying more money for and 25 percent say they’re better tasting.

However, nine percent claim organic foods don’t taste as good as conventionally-grown produce and two percent say organic food is “dirtier” than the regular kind.
