Why buy organic?

Some people think that buying organic produce and products is hype, I am not one of them.  I buy organic whenever possible.  Here is an article from Organic.org that I think is good information.  http://www.organic.org/articles/showarticle/article-206
A friend told me about this video and I think it does a better job at illustrating why I buy organic that most of the articles out there.  And it’s only 2 and a half minutes long :-)
