Oh believe me Toby - I am with you re:the FDA. I don't always agree w/Andrew 
Weil either.
I just thought I'd throw that out there!
I buy organic as much as possible. I am lucky - we have a Halal (Muslim for 
kosher) butcher not too far from us and he sells organic meats dirt cheap.
I take acidopholus regularly now...the refrigerated capsules.

Stay well and happy!
