I love your article. Your quote below pretty much sums up the whole healthy/organic eating fear tactic:
By default their words imply that the unclean detritus others prepare must be dangerous. After all, if it is not clean, it must be dirty. Filthy dirty.
Have you received EWG’s emails? They’re telling me I can prevent cancer by eating their select list of organic/etc produce! Cause we all know that Cancer is that simple, just eat a bunch of this and a bunch of that, and you’re set to be cancer free!! Am I right or wrong?
I recently received an e-blast from them, which I had to take a snapshot of, because it’s marketing is so absurd and insensitive. It implies that the only reason people get Cancer is because they are not eating the “right” things! They also discovered a cancer calculator, that tells you how much cancer you have based on organic produce you eat. Is it Science? It’s INSANE!
So, taking into account the price of “healthy/organic” food and produce or whatever, does that mean that poor and working class people are screwed? Does that mean that they’re going to get cancer? Anyone care about them? You need a csa membership first!
Eating “Healthy” food (Organic Food only) is a status symbol. It’s a trend of the already healthy and prosperous. And now more than ever, it’s the formula that will keep Cancer away, make you sexy, show your intelligence and superiority, unlike those poor souls that can’t afford 3 organic apples for $11.50, how can they sleep at night!!!
