Barry Pryor enjoyed a short stack of wheat-free pancakes drenched in
Vermont grade B maple syrup Saturday afternoon in the East End Food Co-op
"I'm not a vegetarian, but I like mostly vegetables, and I always try to
buy organic, if I can," says Pryor, 57, while taking a break from his
weekly shopping at the organic food co-op in Point Breeze. "I've been
doing it for 20 to 25 years."
Pryor, of Beltzhoover, is among a growing number of Americans who eat and
shop organic. It's not just for vegetarians and vegans anymore.
"People are concerned about pesticides, genetically modified foods --
cloned foods and 'Frankenfoods' -- chemical fertilizers and sewage sludge
[used as fertilizer]," says Karen Brooks, floor manager at the co-op.
Others go organic because they're on gluten-free diets because of
allergies. Some are on raw food diets. Some are vegetarians and don't eat
meat, poultry, fish or seafood. Some are vegans and don't eat meat,
poultry, fish, seafood, eggs or dairy products. Some are people seeking
alternatives to Western medicine by altering their diet.
