Weirdo

I must admit, I might be a weirdo.

If it makes me weird to prefer 
> food that has not been doused with pesticides, I guess I am.
> food that has not been treated with herbicides, I guess I am.
> food that has not been sprayed with fungicides, I guess I am.
> meat that has not been injected with antibiotics, I guess I am.
> meat that has not been implanted with hormones, I guess I am.
> food that has not been tinkered with genetically, I guess I am.
> food that has not been embellished with numerous chemicals, many names of which I can't pronounce (much less know what they are), I guess I am.
> food that does not have to be cooked into oblivion to assure its safety, I guess I am.

Granted, our government assures us that the aforementioned "treated" foods are completely safe.  It endorses, supports, and subsidizes the production and dissemination of those very foods.  Our government even insists the same be fed to the children in our schools, to those serving in our military, and to those who receive government assistance through food stamps.

Thus, that food must be healthy and safe.  Right?  

I don't think so.  If that makes me a weirdo, then I'll plead guilty.  Gladly.
(Never felt like I was in the mainstream of thought anyway.)
