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.
