It's cheaper to grow organicly as I don't have to buy a lot of crap, to cure problems I can fix in better ways.
I can also do the same thing and raise my own meats, if I could get the wife to move out to my land. That isn't going to happen, however.
My original point being, vegetarians who don't eat organic get way too many chemicals in their salad. It is almost impossible to grow peaches without spraying them daily or weekly with chemicals.
However, I can grow nectarines without any spray at all...
Even meat with its corn fed, hormone injected product, is not as good for you as the grass fed beef.
Soy isn't a good choice to replace meat, unless you are a monk.
