Organic Crack: Does the Label “Organic” Really Mean Anything?

Organic Crack: Does the Label “Organic” Really Mean Anything?

Organic is a label that is supposed to signify quality, something that is good and natural. But due to vast commercialization in the interest of greed, you cannot depend on this label as an absolute guide to point you in the right direction with your food selections.

Ideally, when you see the label organic on a product it should denote that the product is good for you; hence, you shouldn’t have to question its authenticity. Despite this, in some instances, you still can depend on this label as a reasonable guide. For example, you can do so when buying natural fruits and vegetables. Organic, in this regard generally means the food was naturally grown; no fertilizer, pesticides, etc. were used in the process.

The discrediting aspect in the application of the label, organic, and where it becomes very misleading is when it is applied to products that are unnatural. This label was supposed to be intended for foods that are carbon based (natural) as opposed to those that are starch based. Nevertheless, you can now find foods that are GMOs (genetically modified organisms) being labeled as organic. Even destructive foods such as white sugar and white flour are now qualified for the organic label. These foods are poisonous at their core; there isn’t any such thing as "good bad food", or in this instance, good white sugar or white flour. Applying the label organic to any of them is as ridiculous as someone claiming to have a type of crack cocaine that is organic.

People are investing a lot in “organic” food thinking they are getting the best but only to find out they are not. Organic GMOs – is an oxymoron; very misleading and dangerous. You have to be careful with your selection of food and understand that all of these different food labels are diluted and lacks integrity. You can only use them as a loose guide, but not to depend on them as something perfect.
