The Organic Movement started out well. Get away from chemical foods (and body care products), and only deliver all natural chemical free foods that are healthier and safer. Thanks to government regulations that spell out how much chemical and biological contamination is allowed and still qualify for the organic symbol, Big Agriculture & Bio Tech has figured out how to game the system. And that still does not protect you from salmonella outbreaks, E. coli, etc.
A lot of small producers who want to provide healthy food, can’t or won’t tie themselves to the government organic program, so they call their products “all natural” or “chemical free”, but Big Agriculture has figured out that game as well, and use those labels to pump even more crap into our systems, including GMO, chemicals, and pseudo-food (parts is parts).
The take-away from this is don’t hide behind labels. Know where your food comes from, know what you are eating, and best of all, grow as much of your own as you can. Your body will thank you.
