To call people "snooty" and "elitist" because we care about not adding chemicals and junk to our foods is just wrong. I am not a wealthy person, by no means, and I make sacrifices to buy the food that I do, but that is because there is nothing more important to me than my children and their health.
Also, what will this do to the Farmers and Companies that take work hard to bring us Organic and nonGMO foods? I love to support the companies that are making strides to provide us cleaner more natural foods. Dr. Oz is saying they are "not democratic", that only 1% of the country cares about this and we are elitist. Sorry I think a heck of a lot more care and make great strides to go the Organic route.
I like what the Health Ranger says here quoting Dr. Oz...
"Organic food is great, it's just not very democratic," Dr. Oz declares, as if choosing organic is somehow an affront to America. "You don't need to eat like the 1% to eat healthily," he says. In other words, keep sucking down more GMOs, pesticides, herbicides and chemicals, and you'll be a good little American food slave. Buying organic is anti-American, you're being told." ~~Natural News
Dr. Oz, there is a huge difference and I know many people who changed their illness and diseases by going to an organic and nonGMO diet, cancer survivors, auto immune diseases, allergies, ADHD, ADD, autism, I can go on.
Just like the Health Ranger has said, I too believe he has betrayed his readers and supporters. What a shame! I am sure I will be hearing more people saying that DR Oz says GMO's are safe, no need for organic, and the like. Well I invite you to my GMO News section and see the videos that will explain why a nonGMO diet is so important.
I invite you to read Dr. Oz viciously attacks organic foods and farmers markets, pushes feedlot beef, urges clueless consumers to eat more pesticides and GMO (opinion)
