Why do we call things organic? Everything is organic. Just because something is organic doesn't make it healthy. Just because something is inorganic doesn't make it unhealthy.
What makes something good or bad for you is the actual content of the product. And being organic isn't anything special. Organic is simply a new way to charge people more for lower quality. But people are always big on branding, especially if it costs more money and makes their lives worse. And so we have now branded some foods as organic and all others somehow aren't organic.
We have spent thousands of years developing technology and finding ways to harvest and grow products but for some reason we don't like technology when it comes to food. We are okay with technology enhancing our communication and our education but when it comes to technology enhancing our food we don't want any part of that. We would rather eat food the old way.
I take nutrition very seriously and I'm always looking for healthy food. Here's a tip: organic food isn't that healthy. Most organic food often times tastes worse and have less nutritional value. Having somebody specialize in making lots of food isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes local farmers aren't as good as large farmers who specialize in production. The large farmer got big because people liked their products.
Don't believe the hype. Organic is just another word that gets people excited for no reason.Filed under: Health / Fitness, Organic, Food
