Organic Tea, Organic food

1. at this point in time organic is basically expensive bullshit.

its just the LABEL you’re paying extra for (and this label is regulated by the US gov’t, and thats partly good. i’m scared to think of any imported ‘organic’ foods and what whack standards other countries may have… hi China, Mexico… except maybe Germany…or the northern countries… or Switzerland)

for the US organic label regulations, to be ‘organic’ they (farmers) just have to avoid using A,B,C,D substances,
…but that doesnt mean they cant use X,Y,Z or those not covered in the regulations.
read the USDA organic regulatory text (federal) esp these points:

§ 205.601 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic crop production.
…how you like that?

§ 205.603 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic livestock production….Aspirin…Biologics-Vaccines…
… how about this one? organic milk yeah?

2. Why do you think organic is better? because you’re hoping to live 120 or more years ? …really?

is it a ‘clean’ ‘non-toxic’ body you want? come on, you dont live in a bubble. there is no way to avoid toxic anything.

3. there is no virgin soil left where you can grow such ‘organic’ food. they need water, they need air. they need nutrients.

i have nothing against non-toxic, truly clean, un-adulterated foods. i think it would be wonderful, and healthy to have that.

maybe some farms are truly wanting to make a difference, but in the end it will not matter to your health, unless you’re already eating crap.

do this to improve your health, and quality of life.

  1. Organic…

    …describes anything that’s carbon-based.

    What the fuck does that have to do with fertilizer and pesticide? Damn near everything we encounter is organic. Plastics are organic, for heaven’s sake!

    The term in it’s present use is an engineered marketing buzzword.

    It’s similar to “Essential” being used as “containing essences” but people hear, and know it as meaning “necessary.” It’s done on purpose, it’s dishonest, and it makes me want to vomit.
