Why I Oppose Organic Food?

Few weeks back at a conference I was almost shouted down when I began opposing organic food.

My main arguments were on the near impossibility of producing REAL organic food in an ever shrinking land holdings and cost of production, which in my view, shall remain prohibitive because of low productivity – unless of course one allows GM seeds under organic regime.

Genuine organic stuff would require one to maintain isolation distances so that so though harmful chemicals in soil, air and underground water aquifers from inorganic neighbors don’t creep in one’s organic production systems. 

Obviously, I could not find an ally at that conference. Yesterday however I found one when I stumbled upon a Washington Post article at http://is.gd/eru8Ve 

What a solid argument? Definitely organic movement and opposition to GM seeds is against hunger and poverty.
