‘Scientists’ Say Eating Organic Food Makes You a Jerk

Anthony Gucciardi

Do you eat real, organic food? If you do, you must be a jerk, according to a new ridiculous ‘scientific study’ that most likely has financial ties to factory farm corporations and junkfood makers across the planet. Instead of discussing the wide variety of health benefits of eating real food — the kind made without harmful pesticides that actually make you stupidthe researchers use participants to show how ‘eating organic can make you a jerk’. Now spanning the mainstream media headlines, the ‘scientists’ use the fact that those who eat organic are ‘stingier with their volunteering’ time as one of the reasons as to why it could ‘make you a jerk’.

What the scientists do not discuss, as it is much more serious and could potentially change the way that the public eats (and spends their money), is the serious illnesses associated with eating non-organic junk, almost always laced with pesticides and oftentimes genetically modified. They fail to mention the fact that junk food has been found to make you infertile, that ubiquitous high-fructose corn syrup makes you ‘stupid’ through the destruction of your memory and learning capabilities, and how common food chemicals are fueling the obesity epidemic. But it appears that to them none of these factors are as important to the study authors as the fact that those who eat organically (real food) offer 11 minutes less volunteer time than the ‘comfort food crowd’.

Perhaps a more important story covering recent research should be one entitled ‘Junk Food Makes You Fat, Stupid, and Infertile’. In fact, the researchers could discuss the long list of issues resulting from pesticide exposure alone such as:

  • Carcinogenicity
  • Immune system suppression
  • Miscarriages
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Male infertility & inhibited reproductive function
  • Disruption of the endocrine system
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Adversely affected nervous system
  • Massive pollution & environmental decay

If eating real food (the kind that has not been contaminated with chemical additives) makes someone unscrupulous and rude, then perhaps our ancestors were all ‘jerks’. After all, up until modern times the word ‘organic’ was not even used to describe real food.

    Great blog post. In my opinion, there’s always a scientist, always a person, who will have a different opinion. So while most are talking about the benefits of organic foods, one has totalk about the negatives, I suppose that’s just human nature to 1- be different 2- be righteous 3- make a profit (i.e. who funded these scientists? Was it kraft foods? Was it a fast food corportation?

    Reading studies like this can make you stupid. Anyone who says that eating organic food is not healthier than eating conventionally grown, pesticide and herbicide riddles, genetically-modified junk. Always follow the money – who gains when people buy and eat crap?

  3. OK, so I’m an organic JERK 🙂 I’m OK with that…….

  4. The study results are probably reflective of society today.
    To eat organic, once must first sift through the haze, and chuck out the chaff, so to speak, then stopping to smell the roses, all takes time (and some effort). Far more than 11 minutes.

    In less than 11 minutes, one can open a specially-treated pack, add some water to the content, woof it down, and be ready to volunteer.
    Time adds exponentially by each meal.
    Perhaps the scientists misunderstood the results.

    Perhaps the non-jerks could do a reality-show, on themselves.
    (they already do) – but you are probably out volunteering to some charity, so would not see them on TV.
    A lot of people volunteer. Even some down in the market I frequent.

  5. I think what is interesting about this is that the study is seen as ‘proof’ when in reality it is a small enough group with a limited test case that has a result that makes it seem so.

    It may be even that the study has some hidden merit but more that it merits further investigation as to why this outcome was reached. Maybe instead those who seek moral license happen to choose a dietary route to attain it. For example some are vegetarians, some are ‘foodies’ who will only eat the perfect strawberry, etc.. This does not mean that all vegetarians, all organitarians [that sounds wrong] and all foodies are this way. Rather that this is one tool used by a different subset of people who wish to find a way to manipulate their own perception of self.

    What I find interesting is that the media often sells an incomplete product as fact and many of us are not encouraged to exercise our critical thinking skills to see the fly in the ointment. Furthermore, there are some who will not even read the article if the mere title affirms their own gut feeling about something; rather they will merely add another hash mark to their own set of preconceived notions and feel resolute in their beliefs. At least this is my perception.
