Skip to comments.Does organic food turn people into jerks?

As it turns out, new research has determined that a judgmental attitude may just go hand in hand with exposure to organic foods. In fact, a new study published this week in the journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science, has found that organic food may just make people act a bit like jerks.

They were like that before they ate the food.
Yes, but like the organic seeds, they needed time to grow and blossom into full fledged jerks. If they drive a Prius it seems to act as fertilizer.
I’ve noticed this, especially in my wife’s friend, who is an organic foods advocate, but I know for a fact she’s a closet comfort food addict. I see junk food bags and wrappers stuffed under her car seats. Hahaha! If I was a mean person, I would really get her on that one....
Yes, and here is proof
Good idea. I'll try that...
Moral superiority doesn't come from the food you eat or the car you drive, whatever they think.
Lack of God seems to drive a lot of it.
Not necessarily, but they do make good fertilizer after the die.
The Lord lays before us choices.
—some years ago , Volvo ownership did the same thing-—
I know lots of people who have gone organic, the ones who were jerks before still are and the ones who weren’t before still aren’t.
He was really good at math. Maybe math makes one a jerk...
Dear Moderator; I sincerely apologize for my inappropriate use of the slang term for human waste yesterday. It was because of all the salad I ate. Oh, shirt, I almost did it again.
Exactly, confusing symptoms with causes is a rookie mistake.
exactly...self obsessed folks ...who make great libs with tight orbits
i would exclude folks who do it for serious health reasons like cancer treatment or diabetes
if you really want to be toxin free then juice juice juice....and eat raw foods mainly ...and fish as your only meat
nothing else...sugar in raw forms like agave and no dairy
it will thin you out and throws cancer a curve ball
but it takes discipline and it’s not cheap really...we are talking a lot of juice
i could do it for a while but not for LaLanne years
you are what you eat but folks don’t need to be so self righteous about it
I guess that's why, at my age, I can climb a tree like a squirrel, scale a fence like a racoon, swim like a fish, and sometimes just lay around like a vegetable.
Just yesterday my sister got mad because I said the idea for organic farming in Detroit is idiotic. She assumed I was bashing organic gardening. What I really think is idiotic is the idea of farming organic or otherwise in the toxic soil of Detroit. Its especially true in a state covered with farmland now.
As far as organic gardening is concerned, I use mostly natural fertilizers and pesticides. I don’t go overboard and let the critters eat their fill. If natural ain’t workin, I turn to chemical warfare.
They have to be jerks in the first place to pay twice the price of the price of regular produce for half the quality.
Correlation is not causation. In this case, Occam’s Razor indicates that they were jackasses first.
Right. The conclusions put the cart before the horse here.
I'd say social networking via the Internet vs. real life interactions might be more of cause than eating organic food.
That and the fact that the world is just getting meaner....
Sounds like your wife’s friend is a “junk food junkie.”
Seems Arugula and Artichokes make people top of the list SNOBS too.. :)
Well, yesterday I cooked 2 artichoke and had a salad with arugula. I love that bitter taste in the salad. I am not a snob. LOL.
Horsepuckey, as my dad would say. I’m a Constitutional conservative. I buy organic milk so my kids don’t get pumped full of more hormones and crap. I buy organic produce mostly from Kroger and it’s pretty darned cheap. I’m not a jerk (well not due to the fact that I like organics, anyway). But I certainly see some on this thread.
A person has to be ignorant and gullible to think ‘organic’ is somehow a better product.
Or is it that only jerks eat organic food and brag about it?
Ignorant and gullible to think that say chicken that isn’t fed a steady diet of estrogen is a better, more healthy product? I don’t think so. Quite, the opposite. I’d wager money that we’ll learn that the hormones fed to our livestock are even more detrimental to our health than we now suspect.
