I hear that's made out of something...peas? Pepper? Parsnips? It'll come to me.
I think that "processed foods" will make a comeback, when science figures out ways to synthesize the chemicals that our bodies need ("chemical" being used in the scientific sense, not in the stigmatized pop-culture sense) in a way that is efficient, healthy, and environmentally sound. (We've already got some of that going on.) It's going to take a while to deprogram people who instinctively grab something because it says "organic," because the nightly news said that anything else is poisonous.
Dairy products are the only things I'm really behind when it comes to organic food. Even then, it takes a lot of research into the company to make sure that no animals (or farmers, we actually still have those) are being harmed. I've heard that Horizon, a fairly popular organic company, is pretty terrible behind the scenes, but I've yet to look into it. I have ethical beef* when it comes to organic vegetables...there are still chemicals used in farming, just "natural" chemicals as opposed to synthesized chemicals, but many of the "natural" chemicals can increase the amount of heavy metals in soil, which in turn can seep into the groundwater as well as end up in the food, increasing the amount of heavy metals in our bodies. This affects the local ecosystem as well as our bodies, if the metals accumulate at a rate faster than we can excrete them (which isn't terribly fast).
One of my best friend's fathers is a dairy farmer, and I actually lived with him for two months last year. He definitely wasn't organic, but the cows on the farm didn't seem...to the untrained eye, it was a perfectly safe operation. (By the way, milk straight out of the cow is kind of gross. It's like drinking butter.) He's very knowledgeable when it comes to organic farming, but he can't afford to switch over; while his farm is very large and is technically very high valued, he has a tiny profit margin and is completely ruled by the whims of the market.
