Michael Olson hosts: Mischa Popoff, Author Is It Organic

••••
Are all foods labeled “organic” organic?

****
File this under Michael Olson’s Third Law of the Food Chain:  The farther we go from the source of our food, the less control we have over what’s in our food.

*******
On average, the food we eat now travels well over a thousand miles from where it was grown.   As a consequence of this distance, we are losing track of who is growing our food, and how they are growing it.  One way to regain some control over the food we eat is to buy food that displays the “Certified Organic” label.

The organic food industry is expected to grow from $60 billion today to $105 billion in 2015 on our desire to buy food that is clean and wholesome.

Foods that have been certified “organic” are to be grown and processed without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and to not contain genetically-modified organisms or GMOs.  At least, that is what we want to believe, and what industry wants us to believe, but is it true?

Are all foods labeled “organic” organic?
