Janna Posted July 3, 2009 Share Posted July 3, 2009 I came across this article this morning. I find it disturbing, so I thought I'd share. I know there is a large number of health-conscious, organic eating people here who might be interested in this. How this Barbara Robinson of the USDA in charge of the organics program still has her job is beyond me. I've already known and practiced staying away from organics that are from certain major companies - Horizon, for one, has been and still is a joke; a total waste of money there. It just doesn't make sense in my mind to trust major companies (like Dean or Kraft) that have an organic line. I know that the best thing is to buy local, even if it's not organic, but it's hard to find for a lot of people, and in this current economy, it's way too expensive. For me anyway. I don't know. I guess it all comes down to one of the quotes in the article: "Consumers, they expect organic food to be growing in a greenhouse on Pluto. Hello? We live in a polluted world. It isn't pure. We are doing the best we can." (emphasis mine) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
