    I always thought it was over-hyped, over-price bull**** that had no benefits.

    Turns out I was right.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    I do not care if the food I eat is organic or not as long as it is not expensive. I could care less if the chickens I eat were raised in a big industrial barn or roamed around outside or if the produce was grown with or without pesticides. It irritates me that cooking shows has bought into this nonsense of using organic. Can anyone without some agenda to push honestly say there is a distinguishable difference in taste? Those pesticides,fertilizers and hormones are used for a reason and without them food would be more expensive and require more land to grow and unless that stuff was grown locally it is not going to make a environmental impact verses buying non-organic. If organic food is in something I eat its not because I actively went looking for organic.

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"

    I do sometimes, because my wife is big into "organic" foods. I actually cannot let her go shopping by herself, because its all she would buy and we would go over budget. She would seriously pay like $6 for a jar of peanut butter, if it said "All natural/Organic". We compromise and she picks up a few things, so I end up eating some of it.

    Does a 6 dollar jar of organic peanut butter taste better than a cheaper name brand jar of the same size and flavor?

    She had some peanut butter that was ground up right in front of you, that was supposedly organic. Like you pull a little lever, and it grinds up or squeezes out peanut butter. It did taste different. Bad enough I told her to never buy that **** again.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    “Organic food” is a misnomer, since anything produced by a biological process as food must be organic. What is generally meant by “organically grown produce,” is “grown in poop and rotting things that would make your skin crawl to touch.”

    Nom nom.

    So in the true sense, I eat mostly organic foods. But I dont go for the “labeled organic” stuff.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    I eat whatever is put in front of me as long as it doesn't include cooked cabbage.
