Is organic food good for you? Sure.
If non-organic food terrible for you? No. Fast food certainly is, but the standard salad or meat you get at a grocery store which doesn't have that wonderful "100% organic" label on it is not bad for you; most of it is either genetically modified to grow more quickly (and contrary to popular belief, that does not decrease the quality or edibility of the food) or in the case of animals, hormonal additives which must cease anywhere between 30 - 180 days prior to slaughter. The only reason non-organic food would be bad for you is if additives are added post slaughter (like unhealthy fats and greases, aka fastfood), or if the people raising the non-organic food are breaking federal law by the FDAA. Or its cafeteria food. Who knows what they do with that...

People who so dramatically advocate organic food as so wonderful while villanizing commercial-level food products seem far too biased for me.

Organic food is more expensive because it costs more to produce. For example, eating an organic vegatable means that they dont use pestasides, genetically altered seeds, etc. Which means, they are smaller, there are less of them, but they are better for you.

Many of the superheros that were invented in the 20th century have origin stories related to nuclear accidents and radioactivity, because that was the "mysterious power" that people were afraid of at the time. Perhaps superheroes (and villains) of the 21st century will be created through eating unforeseen combinations of GM food?

Organic = Living and/or cellular. All produce is organic.

Well, it is significantly more work to produce organic food, so that is one reason for the price markup. I'm not saying that there aren't people getting awfully rich by selling expensive organic food, but "conventional" food companies like Kratt Foods or Nestle aren't exactly poor either.

And no, I don't believe that all organic food is automatically better. But when I buy food, I have a pretty good idea of which food is probably going to be healther in its organic version. If you use just the inside of a pumpkin, then you don't need an organic pumpkin. If you use the whole thing, you're better of with an organic one, because the pesticides do build up in the outer layers. Non-organic meat does contain antibiotics (which is one big reason for the growing antibiotics resistence in bacteria) and hormones (which is theorized as one reason for why girls reach puberty earlier nowadays). Organic meat does not always taste better, but at least the best chicken (by far) that I have ever eaten was organic. So your mileage may vary greatly, and the higher price is not always justified.

Ironically, the "natural" pesticides they use to grow organic food are more toxic than the synthetic pesticides used on regular food. That's why synthetic pesticides were invented in the first place.

However, people use the word "chemical" to describe synthetic pesticides, and people have a weird way of reacting to the word "chemical"--which is why "organic foods" were created.

It's like a circle, but it's vicious.

Well, I like to point out to people that snake poison is natural and that there are not many chemical poisons that are more poisonous than the worst snake poisons.

However, real organic farming does not actually use any pesticides, neither chemical nor organic. Organic farming uses the natural predators of the pest insects.

Fear of new technology derives from a lack of understanding. Look back at recent history - computers, nuclear power, planes, cars, etc. have all had their fear-mongerers shouting about them. The latest is GM foods which scare people that have grown up with the idea of science creating monsters.

**** monsanto man. We need someone to put a bullet in their CEOs head.

Its one thing to make nature better (ie built in pesticides) but when you do **** like making them unable to reproduce so you have to keep buying from them, is just downright retarded and could lead to the extinction of the plants...

I watched a documentary, I believe it was called Food Inc, which explained why the prices are steeper. Something about competing with the larger companies, though it may have been another reason. I invite you all to watch the film as it was quite good, and maybe one of you can remind me of the reason.

Organic food is not 'definitely better for you' look at what happened with the E. Coli break out from organic German farms because of the lack of bacteriosides. It may seem fresher and taste better; however from my knowledge (a Bromatologist, google that if you don't know what it is) more people get sick from organic than non-organic foods

One of my co-workers has his wife come in almost every day for his break, and she only eats organic food. She looks generally healthy, but holy **** she has to be rich to afford that.

She bought a candy bar once from me, and it was nearly $7.00

I'm too broke to eat healthy.

Part of the reason that organic food is expensive is that it's expensive to grow. They can't run gigantic operations with millions of acres of land and massive factories - they have to do everything without the aid of genetic modification and pesticides. Organic food is a helluva lot better for you than the processed crap you get at the store, but it's expensive.

just as well, the government subsidizes nonorganic food operations, and taxes organic ones. crazy world we live in huh.

Everyone's slowly dying anyway so why not eat the food you enjoy the most?
User avatar #7 to #1 - telekinetic (05/17/2013) [-]
Because it may make it so you're quickly dying.
