Default ORganic eggs versus eggs

There is no real reason to buy organic eggs right?

Organic eggs? No, not really. Omega-3 eggs? Yes.

Free range is often a bit of a joke, but slightly better than non free range. Organic ensures your chickens are free range, fed with organic feed, and a couple other non-essential things.

Pastured is your best bet from both a nutrition and health perspective, but far more pricey ($8/doz).

Seems expensive, until you realize that <$2 eggs means:

Hmmm, I've never had access to free range. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen them at the store. I usually just look for Eggland's Best Omega-3 eggs. I'm sure they're not the "best" choice, but they're they best I have available.

As for organic, I keep seeing more and more criticism of "organic" foods. It would be great if organic really meant organic, but apparently it's not very hard to get that label, and the methods are not always ideal. Still, I suppose it's better than just buying the conventional store brand.

Does anyone have scientific data that they can cite on the demonstrated health benefits of free range / organic / omega-3 eggs vs. conventional eggs?
