Yes all the time
Yes most of the time
Not that often
If you really think "salt is salt", you need to do some research hon. I'd be happy to post some information for you about all the different salts and how they're used if you'd like.
I don't worry if its organic or not. I don't eat processed food or any kind of junk food, soft drinks, alcohol, cigarettes.
Sometimes but it cost too damn much

I don't usually look for the organic label, but I look for a freshness guarantee. When I pick up a vegetable, if it comes from California and I'm living in Canada, it won't be as fresh as a vegetable that was grown in British Columbia, my home province.
I look for food that is grown locally because it will have more nutritional value, and less of an ecological footprint in its production. Food that is transported across continents unnecessarily uses up fuel and resources that could have been put back into production.
I wash all vegetables thoroughly with a special soap, regardless if they are organic or not, because there is always unseen dirt and residues from the transportation process. The only exception to that is if I'm washing mushrooms, in which case I just use water.
EVERYBODY eats organic food.
ALL food is organic.
Calling some food "organic" is a marketing gimmick.
"And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit."

It's not a gimmick. The term is meant to represent food that is produced without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The term has been abused by companies in recent years because both the Canadian and U.S. governments have made laws which say the term "organic" can be used to describe basically all food.
The laws were updated to prevent the industrial food industry from losing money. It's the same reason why we are not allowed to know which products are GMO or not. People would stop buying.
Yes, 'cause I'm all elite like that.
No, but I do insist on whole grains, brown rice/sugar and meat that hasn't been fed corn instead of its natural diet (grass, etc...)
Organic is a meaningless term, the above are easy distinctions to determine and are proven better for you. That is not the case for "organic" foods, and most people cannot pass an "organic fruit" taste test. Locally grown vegetables and fruits are just fine.
I do also avoid processed food, high fructose corn syrup rather than sugar, and basically anything that I am not cooking.
