Many, many D.C. politicians select the highest-quality, healthiest foods for themselves, but insist that far lower quality fare (often grown by their donors) is good enough for the rest of America.
Wanting to eat organic produce is understandable, given that organics are:
- Not genetically modified.
- Free of chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides
- Free of antibiotics
- Free of chemical fertilizers, plant steroids
- Not prematurely ripened with chemical gases
Or maybe our leaders have heard the dire results of research done on this new experiment called genetically modified foods. "The results range from intestinal damage, allergies, liver or pancreatic problems, testicular cellular changes, tumors, and even death in the experimental animals." (Source - Care2.com)
So who are these "let them eat cake" politicians who quietly quaff organic goods while foisting legislation and federal agency appointees on us to aggressively force non-organic food on American homes?
