Organic/Conventional food... Do organic animals look this bad when they are killed? At that point is organic meat really worth the cost and hype?

    PETATv Screen: video is "Meet your meat"
    **Have a bag around just in case!

    I am a MEAT EATER- but I saw this this weekend..and it made me question a couple things. Anyone got some advice of it really matters if an animal is in an "organic facility" and its sick...does it still get processed as organic or turns into conventional...when they inject it with meds?

    I wouldn't trust PETA on this topic. A really good look into the food industry from big-agro corporations to organic foods and to the naicent local food trend, check out Michael Pollon's Omnivore's Dilema

    A much more rational look at meat production than the panic-mongering PETA.

    I don't eat meat however organic is well worth the cost, for vegetables and fruit that is. Studies have been conducted in England, well over 10 million pounds were conducted on the study and the end result was that organic produce had more vitamens and minerals and less harmfull substances, the same is said for milk and eggs.

    Sucks being at the top of the food chain!

    Dead cow is yummy.

    Organic beef is about 35% more costly to produce. Unless you want $3.00 burgers, the idea is absurd.

    Trenbolone (Finaplix, Revalor, and Ralgro) is used in 100% of beef production not labeled organic in the U.S. Most livestock producers won't consider organic because they lose their shirts. Trenbolone increases feed efficiency by 30%, or more.

    The cheap beef that you enjoy is a direct product of years of science, and, the practical application of science to feed the masses.

    More vitamins? Well, if the efficiency is 30% higher...hum. THINK.
