16. Yup you nailed it! The argument is flawed; Organic is BETTER!

 

I have heard this line of BS parroted in the media,. I immediately said the same thing "who ever made this claim of being more nutritious?" It is a clear Straw Man argument designed to confuse simple people and delude the real issues. Monsanto and the petro-chem corporate farming industry is destroying land water and air, poisoning people and killing off the bees.

Organic food is better for you, since it contains much less poison, and is not been genetically modified so corporations can make claims of ownership over the seeds. The idea of living things being intellectual property is ridiculous. GMOs and pesticides are corporate tools of profit and control and produce inferior and poisoned foods.

Organic food is better for us because when we eat it you are supporting the building up of the soil in sustainable ways, not the killing of the soil, and petroleum grown mono-crops the corporations use to take sort-term profits, leaving a scorched dead earth when they are gone. Small diverse organic farms are safer and more resistant to climate change, and pests/diseases. Chemically maintained mono-crops are corporate ideology at its worst, they produce lots of inferior food in the sort term for quick profits, and create a poisoned and degenerated land for the long term. short term gain for profit, while stealing from the future.

Organic food tastes better.
