I was quite surprise to read that organic meat is actually wasteful from a magazine. I have no idea how true it is, though it seems to make sense.
The first reason they put forth is organic animals require a longer time to grow to as they are not pumped with hormones. This results in the need to consume more organic plant food to feed them. It will be better if humans eat the plant food instead.
The second reason is that it takes many folds of resources such as water, energy and land to produce a pound of organic meat compared to non-organic meat.
Since organic animals are brought up with more space per animal, more farm space would mean more forests cleared to raise the animals.
The magazine suggests that saving the Earth will be better by reducing both the consumption of non-organic and organic meats.
