Organic vs. "regular" food has become a political issue like so many other things (global warming) that instead should stay in the socio-scientific sphere. It's quite amazing that artificial food full of chemicals is now considered to be the "regular" food for our culture. In my experience, the "regular" food-eaters who use terms like "new ager" to put down the organic culture, are often people who don't even know how to read a nutrition label. Therefore, it is the opinion of this article that using ad hominem attacks to marginalize people who promote organic living stems from the defensiveness of those who would rather not put the time and effort into eating healthily. The food industry, including fast food restaurants, would like you to believe that food is just food and they've made it very easy for you to access their products at anytime and in abundance. However, re-examine what you're consuming daily and maybe you'll realize that not all food is created equal.
