[APD] Organic Eggs, etc.
Okay, you caught me making fun of all the knee-jerk pseudo-hippie yuppie
wannabes who latch onto every fad which comes along. Like those who
agonize that a few fluorescent bulbs will poison the aquifer, or think all
asbestos will kill you immediately, not knowing they drink water from
asbestos-cement pipes every day. Or who think a little radiation will
deform their children when they live near, inside or have huge slabs of
granite in their home.
Yes, natural eggs taste better and are better for you. Grass-fed beef is
better than grain-fed also, but a little time in a feed lot does add some
very nice marbling right before butchering. There is a land developer
here in town who bought a pecan orchard. One year he got lazy and didn't
bother to fertilize the trees. He still got pecans, but they were smaller
and fewer in number. He sold them in smaller packages as 'organic' for
eight times the price of 'regular' pecans!
I guess if people want to spend substantially more money on products that
have no proven significant additional nutritional value, that's up to them
if they can afford it, as long as they don't try to take away my freedom to
make rational ecnomic decisions.
