Dennis Portnoy opened an organic food store five months ago a lower Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill. Portnoy, who brought along food samples for sale, said organic foods are selling well in spite of the heavy lox and bagel competition from his business neighbors. In fact, Portnoy said, about a dozen organic food stores have sprouted in the area over the last six months.

Wigmore said makes sense." The other person behind the buffet table was a young woman from North Hills who has taken a year's absence from her teaching job in Bos-" ton to work with Dr. Wigmore: Mary Statter said she switched to an organic diet in September but still "cheats" by eating a little cooked fish every now and then while "my body adjusts from the poisonous food I used to eat."

A 1 1 100 people-some confirmed organic food eaters and some strictly meat-and-potato fans gathered last night at the Friends Meeting House in Oakland to learn what was new in the world of organic foods.
