This Video is proof we should eat Organic Food.

I don't trust grocery store food, this video is proof everyone should be eating as much home grow organic food as possible.

Check out THE FARM in Summertown TN 200 people living on 8 square miles of land for 47 years they grow all their own food. I have been very good friend with these people for 41 years. They started out with 35 acres.

Re: This Video is proof we should eat Organic Food.

The video certainly makes the good point that organic food is a "precautionary measure", but it isn't completely clear what we're protecting ourselves (as non farm-workers) from. Certainly isn't clear that those organic veggies need to be home grown. On a large farm, organic veggies can be pretty immune from unhealthful overspray. That certainly isn't the case for a small residential garden. OK, if you happen to have 8 square miles of land, you're probably in pretty good shape.

This is a good video in that it makes an honest scientific assessment of what is known and what isn't. Better than the mythology we're often exposed to.

Re: This Video is proof we should eat Organic Food.

This really is an important topic. I think I was lucky being raised by parents that understood how important is was to eat food that wasn't treated with pesticides or genetically modified.
