    Nom nom.

    so in the true sense, I eat mostly organic foods. But I dont go for the “labeled organic” stuff.
    I think the econuts decided to use that term to hype up that type of food and so you do not feel like a dumbass paying more for the same kind of food but had less involvement in its growth.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No, never. Why? Two reasons. There is no definition of what the hell "organic" mens when food gets to the grocery store. Second, it costs more to buy.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    I buy organic meats when I can because I'm allergic to some of the **** they give other animals.

    I buy organic sugar pretty exclusively because sugar isn't supposed to be white and the organic stuff tastes better since it's less processed.

    I like sea salt instead of regular salt when I can find it.

    I buy organic fruits when I can (especially strawberries) because they are by far superior in my experience. Plus, I'd just like to limit the amount of pesticides I ingest.

    I don't know about organic specifically, but the homestyle kind is FAR better. You know the ones where the peanut butter and oil separate in the jar? That is tons better than the other ****.

    "I like sea salt instead of regular salt when I can find it."

    Now that's just too funny.

    With reasoning like that, I rest my case against the stupidity of this organic scheme.

    Thats not entirely true. While it may not have any nutritional benefits which should have been obvious you will not get alot of the harmful chemicals that are applied to non-organic crops.

    Yes. Salt is salt. Whether it comes from the seas or from minds, it's just salt......sodium chloride. If you want to pay more for organic sea salt, be my guest.

    So that is the definition of "organic"? No harmful chemicals. what is a harmful chemical vice a good chemical?
