Skip to comments.Organic shoppers 'less likely to show kindness'
Posted on 02/17/2013 7:13:32 PM PST by ConservativeStatement
Organic products make people feel more secure about their own morality, which weakens the desire to act altruistically, the US findings suggest.
The effect also makes people judge immoral behavior more harshly, psychologists report in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
But comfort foods such as chocolate can lead to us being more social and making "kinder moral judgments".

Doesn’t surprise me one bit.
Your tax dollars at work.
And live in cities where people treat each other like crap and are left leaning in their politics.
Lots of irony in the Left.
Liberals/Progs are elitists. Smug and arrogant and think the rest of the world should be in lockstep. Anyone disagreeing (or not living and thinking as they are) should be killed.
Same ol’, same ol’.
Oh, c’mon...what BS....I’m conservative and I buy some organic stuff....sheesh....
And, I eat a lot of chocolate, too....paying for studies like this is ridiculous and a reason we are in the dire straits we are in.
“Researchers” getting money from my tax dollars to “research” idiotic ideas makes me feel a lot less altruistic.
The Socialized ones aren’t so social.
What was Elizabeth Warren’s line in her recent campaign? “Ask anyone at the cheese store...”
A lot of them are liberal and are perpetually angry.
The big difference is the ideology of people who dwell on what is and isn’t organic. You’re a conservative among a largely liberal crowd in buying organic.
Never thought of this before but this nation is going to war with itself so where will those holier-than-thou pious nitwits going to shop if they refuse to eat anything they stupidly declare “not organic”? They don’t even know what the word ‘organic’ means.
Without the expense of a “study” I swear folks that are vegan are positively hellish to be around.
All I know the few times I shop at the organic stores....” Whole Foods” or “Central Market” I find the employees really nice but the shoppers are not so nice....
This is hilarious!!! Organic produce has been proven to offer NOTHING beneficial over their pesticide treated counterparts!!! All organic products provide is a means for morons to pay MORE for the same produce the rest of us buy for less money!!
The ones that preach tolerance are the most intolerant people around.
Totally unsurprising. And perfectly natural that liberals, who are finger wagging moralizers par excellence, would be the biggest organic food buffs.
Just writing off the title...I KNOW this to be the truth.
About 6-7 years ago, my family and I were interested in eating healthier and looked into organic food. We lived in Tacoma at the time, and there wasn’t much in the way of organic stuff there (it’s changed slightly, but not much). So, my wife and 4 kids took a day trip up to Seattle.
There is an organic chain up there, PCC (Pacific Coast Co-op), that specializes in organic and natural foods. We went to the one in the Green Lake neighborhood...in other words, ground zero for liberal hell in Seattle. We went in to the store and walked around, looking at what they had. Understand- we were dressed nicely, and all four of our kids were well-behaved all during the time we were there.
The LOOKS that we got....they’d have burned through plate steel. Apparently, the fact that we had kids at all was anathema. The shoppers in the market looked at us like we had come in shouting obscenities and thrown feces on the walls. It was as if I could hear them thinking “You waster of resources! How dare you increase your carbon footprint with those brats!”.....or words to that effect.
I am happy to say that I have never been back, and I never will be.
