Stupid quote of the day

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on August 5, 2009

“I don’t see it as a matter of taking sides,” Crane added. “I see it as being informed, knowing what’s reputable, and in some cases what just makes common sense. … Organic has intuitively to be better for you.”

Diana Crane

Skepdude says: Obviously, the most comprehensive review of the literature HAS to be wrong. Why it contradicts with “common sense” and “intuition”!! What are those scientists thinking wasting their time doing their sciency stuff,  just to get a wrong result not backed up by this lady’s intuition? Don’t they know that science must conform to common sense?

    I grow “organic” tomatoes. They are grown over top of the runoff bed of my septic tank!

    (all together now: EEEEEEWW!!)

    As far as I can see, with “organic” not being a protected term, labelling produce with it is just an excuse to charge more money and is technically accurate as long as the product in question contains carbon bonds.

    I pick fruit at a farm that purports to be organic, but they dust their trees with some form of insecticide. As far as I can see, people concerned about “organic” are possibly likely to avoid fast food, potato chips, and pepsi, and that will be their major benefit. Though not a guarantee: I buy free-range eggs from my neighbour’s farm, and locally produced cheese and cream. I can make one ass-kicking “organic” cheesecake which will clog my arteries quicker than anything McDo’s has on offer.

      Tell me about it. But talking to the “believers” at times is worse than talking to a Christian Fundamentalist about the Bible!
