jmals23 saidAn interesting article I came across. Has anyone seen this before?
There are also some good links below each section in the article.
This is basically more crap from the organic crowd.
Take it with a grain of salt (not literally, of course).
If chemicals bother you, you need to stay away from the food store.
Agriculture without chemicals is agriculture that can't feed the masses, has much lower food quality, along with higher wastes, higher carbon footprint, and more spoilage.
Yeah, I thought it was interesting that several of the "experts" were associated with some type of organic organization.
The expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms
and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming
The expert: Jeffrey Moyer, chair of the National Organic Standards Board
The expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and codirector of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods
Of course their going to say non-organic foods are poison ...not that I disagree with that statement. When I was in college, I frequently shopped at a locally owned organic food store, that place was quite expensive.
