Only Rats Choose Organic Food


How's that for an inflammatory header; not bad huh? According to Harold McGee writing in today's NY Times, humans seem not to have the ability to tell the difference between organic produce and produce grown by conventional methods. But in a controlled study conducted by Swiss and Austrian scientists rats could not only tell the difference between the two forms, but they preferred the organic produce.

Well now the rats from Walmart, Smithfield, ADM, Tyson and Cargill are taking the meaning of "Organic" and twisting it into profitability.

Enjoy it before they start turning out organic hydrogenated corn syrup and calling it "chocolate."
