Organic produce is far from a fad. The fact that majority of non organic food is laden in chemicals or has been Genetically Modified gives more than enough reason to make the switch. I often here the complaint that organic food is more expensive than "regular" produce. But what are the costs to your health? To me its a no brainer - our body will respond to what we feed it. If we continue to feed it chemicals you can only expect illness to follow.
Why not head along to your local farmers markets and support your local Organic or Spray free farmer. Along with the health benefits of reducing the chemical intake to your body, you will also be supporting local growers.
