The depressing article (available online here), goes on to state that we simply must switch to organically grown vegetables and meat for our health and the health of the environment. Unfortunately, the organic industry accounts for 1% of food production (eeeek!) and those prices are reflected in the grocery bill (the graphic below was available in the actual magazine, but not online, so I scanned it for you, as a courtesy).
Good heavens. That's a lotta extra dough to eat healthy. Truth be told; I'm a part-time advocate for the organic food movement, and deliberately look for organic products while at the market. I would prefer to be a full time advocate but if you think I'm passing up Chicken breasts that are on-sale for $1.99 per lb, for its pricier organic cousin, then we've obviously never met. I can only entertain this organic movement because I don't have any kids to feed. If I did, you best believe that they would be fat, full of pesticides and daddy would not give a f*ck. I would rely on modern medicine to keep them living until the ripe old life expectancy of 78, as we regularly rolled through the Burger King drive-thru, where they would be told to not even think of ordering anything that was not on the dollar menu, or daddy would slap their bloated, chemically-ridden hands.
What I'm saying is there is a big up-hill battle ahead in the move to organic foods. I apologize to all those looking for snap-shots of a meal I have gobbled down (the beloved food porn) and instead received this Debbie-downer.
