Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Is There Any Actual Evidence That Organic Food Is Healthier?

I was inspired by this article.

As far as I can tell, most of the evidence for the superiority of organic food consists of evidence that it's more organic. (A serving has one molecule of DDT instead of two!) This is sometimes buttressed with evidence that it's more expensive. (An organic diet has fewer calories for the same expenditure!)

1. Everything we eat is organic, except for salt and water.

2. I often buy "organic" products, because they generally seem to be better quality, and tastes better. I think the explanation is that when you're charging that much for something, you can afford to take more care with it, use better quality ingredients (not just the produce), etc. This, in turn, convinces people that "organic" must be better. Hey, it works on me, and I know better.

I sometimes wish that the same products were available in "inorganic, guaranteed to contain GMOs, buy $25 worth and we'll chop down a tree in your name".
