I have still been looking for organic food in Taiwan, as I consider it to be more and more important. I have read some studies which consider the level of Nitrogen in conventional vegetables to be dangerous to peoples intestines, and blame it for a rise in intestinal cancer.

Here are some great articles you can read which talk about Taiwan specifically:
