Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I try my best to buy only organic milk, eggs and meat. Not because I care for any nutritional benefit, but because I know the welfare standards for the animals they come from are higher. ... If you're worried about US Beef or Chicken, then simply don't buy it.
Given the choice between battery-raised chicken and organic chicken, I wonder which option most people in the UK who voted in the referendum would choose.

"Free-range accounts for 5% and organic 1% of UK chicken production, according to the British Poultry Council. The remaining 94% comes from intensively reared birds."

"As of 2014, approximately 95% of eggs in the U.S. were produced in battery cages."

I'm sure most people won't care which country it comes from, how it was raised and whether it was chlorinated or not, as long as it's cheap.
