The idea of organically raised rat will only be appetizing to those who appreciate the research behind it. Rats fed organically slept better, had better immune systems and were less obese than those fed conventionally grown food. In general, organic rats are healthier.
The organic community needs more such studies to make its case. In a previous post I pointed to studies that show that organic agriculture can provide yields comparable to those of conventionally raised crops.
