by the taste. Not even kidding either.

Cool, so it was double-blind and demonstrated a taste difference that was  
positive in your case. Of course, this could be due to any number of  
localized factors.

My first guess is that the "organic" fruit is simply fresher in your case  
(could just be because of the fruit being more local, or because of it  
spoiling more easily, or something similar). In any case, since you have the  
means, buy what taste better, by all means.

 > Do remember that corporations have way too much power in the united states  
of america, they won't admit there is a problem unless it hurts their bottom  

Yes, but don't forget that organic foods is an industry, too. Horizon Organic  
is the most well-known example of a company engaged in it (it produces most  
of the "organic" milk, IIRC), but there are others. There are also entire  
stores built around "natural" and "organic", so they of course have an  
ulterior motive to keep these things popular.

 > Dunno, I think of aspartame as being as bad as transfats, in the sense that  
no amount is good for you.

You can think what you want, but we have evidence that trans fats increase  
your risk of heart disease. There is no evidence for a link between normal  
levels of aspartame consumption and any adverse outcomes.

 > I hope the eating habits you have don't hurt you.

I seem to be doing good for myself so far. I'm always told my blood pressure  
is very good, I'm at a normal weight, and I don't have any health problems  
that I know of.
