    Morons!

    All food is "organic" - yes, even Twinkies. Take a freshman biology class for goodness sake. Some money grubbing advertising executives have tried to re-define the word and a bunch or fools have gone along with it. Please stop falling for the hype and think. Arrrgggghhhh...

    Organic Foods

    I don't usually eat organic food.  I may buy something organic once in a while.  I don't know if this is true or not, I heard if someone has cholesterol, organic foods can help.

    I Will Not Eat GMO Foods
