This is the very thing that gets me worked up about the organic movement. With organics we tend to think of simpler times and ideals. The trouble is even in our organic materials there are synthetics that we do not even know about or consider. Without thorough research (and forums like this) we may be causing more harm then good. What is in that manure we are using? How about that mushroom compost? How was that corn grown? At least with synthetics we are protected by government regulation. So far with organics there is no regulation, standards or even a definitive definition. Until these issues are resolved I doubt straight organic horticulture can make the main stream in todays world.
