Have you heard? A new study out of Stanford has concluded that organic food doesn’t contain any additional nutrients compared to regular ol’ chemically grown food, so you and your hippy liberal friends should stick that in your gay granola pipes and smoke it! It’s all a scam to make you pay more for nothing!
Everyone from the BBC to NPR to Jezebel is reporting about how the organic food industry is nothing more than a scam devised to separate gullible hairy vegans from their hard-earned money. See, aside from not containing any unnatural pesticides or fertilizers, there’s no difference between organic and “regular” food.
Except that that’s exactly the reason why people choose organic food. No one thought organic food was a magic cure for cancer. The whole reason people eat organic food is to avoid pesticides. So yeah… there’s really no news to report here other than wide-reporting of a non-story.
