General Column Writing For: Don’t eat organic!

By: Ken Napier

Second Place for Region 1

These days, our markets are filled with items labeled as Organic or Pesticide Free, claiming benefits from their natural cultivation methods.

“I like buying organic food because…I don’t know…I don’t know why I eat organic foods. I think organic food tastes better,” said Christine Gwin, a hippy and junior at Rutgers.

Muhammad Ali and Dick Winters didn’t buy organic, and I’ll bet they could kick that hippy’s ass.

Actually, “Organic foods have never been shown to be healthier, more nutritious or more safe than conventional foods, despite dozens of scientific studies. There is no weight that organic is better or healthier for you.” says Alex Avery of The Hudson Institute Center for Global Food Issues in a CNN in-depth report.

In fact, organic food might even be WORSE FOR YOU than normal chemically soaked fruits and veggies. Many of the modern farming methods and chemicals that organic products forgo in favor absolutely nothing were put in place for a reason

Feature Writing For: Soccer star Irene Calabria learned to play with the boys
