"Organic!"

Today, I'm going to bring you the truth about "organic" products. I, a scion of skepticism, will tell you all precisely what to think, based on my first-hand experiences.

My experience says very clearly:

Organic products taste better.

Usually, they're faster to market, treated less, and not bred to look good rather than taste good. This includes fruit, veggies, and, surprisingly, milk.

Just a helpful FYI. :)

I totally agree, the first change to my buying patterns I would make if I was rolling in it from a hit game would be to buy organic. My folks hooked me up with a bit of groceries yesterday from Wegman's, a crazy huge supermarket half of which is entirely devoted to organic products. I'm digging it.

Yeah, when my wallet can handle it, I buy organic.

*Gasp* You mean genetic engineering hasn't improved our lives like we've been told it would? Damn them, and their lies!!
[/Sarcasm]

I wonder how the lie started: that chemically processed, and genetically altered stuff was better. That looks were more important than taste. It seems odd that such a falsehood would ever take root.

Well, genetic engineering is a tool. It can be used for good, or it can be used for marketing.

But, actually, most of the "organic" stuff isn't about being un-engineered. It's about being unhormoned, unpreserved, and pure.
