Organic? Kids experiment video
#1
A little girl decided to do an experiment with a sweet potato, and her results will change the way you think about the fruits and vegetables you buy at the grocery store.

Awwwww. What a cute kid, she mouths the words so well.

If this video changes the way you think about food then I'd say you're easily led. There have been many studies and there's no solid evidence that "organic" foods have any real benefit. To me it's just another slick marketing campaign. The benefit of modern farming methods that allow us to grow more per acre are undeniable and they help the poorest among us the most by keeping produce prices down and allowing food to be transported farther with less spoilage. Organics are a high end niche marketed to folks who have the scratch to afford it.

I call bullshit on the potato vine experiment too. I just had to toss half a bag of spuds after three weeks because I forgot to put them back under the steps and in the dark. They sprouted just fine and w/o any water.

I also heard you can no longer power LCD clocks from GMO potatoes.

I've never had a bag of cheap potatoes that didn't grow "eyes". Ever.

Maybe sweet potatoes are different. But I doubt it.



Overall, I'm more concerned about the illegals that pick them after shitting in the field and wiping their ass with their hand.

I'm on the fence with GMO products. I see that they have a benefit of producing more food/acre than non-GMO products. I think my biggest hang up with them is the business practice. There recently was a farmer that was sued into bankruptcy because he dared to grow a third crop of soy beans from some seeds he had either left over or were purchased second hand, I don't remember which.

"Pure Organic" foods on the other hand I feel is nothing more than a scam on those that believe whatever package they read. There still isn't any agreed upon definition of organic, and anyone that sets up at a farm stand/farmer's market can claim what they're selling is organic, and who's going to know? They know they can jack up the price because it's organic and people will buy it to stay away from those evil GMO products. I haven't really been able to figure out why organic foods should be more expensive other than the fact it's the current trend.

As for potatoes sprouting, I've had potatoes not sprout but just get soft and mushy, and I've had some sprout. I do make it a point of keeping my potatoes in a cool dark place. Just picked up 20lbs of russets yesterday made loaded baked taters lastnight for dinner and I was surprised at how good they tasted.

True, but the are excellent for providing the 1.1 Volts needed for powering passive-aggressive, narcissistic, evil AIs.

I don't like gmo foods, I don't believe they are safe and even if they are safe there is no way to know that the genes put into them will not mutate. Something about eating corn that makes its own pesticide does not seem good. Any one read Seeds of Deception?

There are regulations for being certified organic, I am not certified so I just sell my stuff as "chemical free"

Is what they're doing really all that different than what Gregor Mendel did except with a better understanding and ability of genetics. Plants in nature do develop defenses on their own. I also haven't read of anything that shows that GMO products have negative health effects. If you have some links, I'd like to read them.

Is that a recent development? I remember back when the entire certified organic label started and there was talk that there was nothing to define what it meant. Even so, how does one test and prove that a product is organic after it's out on the shelf for sale? Is there an agency out there levying fines for products that are labeled as organic and really aren't?
