Pet Peeve Time

November 19, 2009

Been a while since I last vented to no one in particular. Here’s today’s:

“All Natural”, “Organic”, and “Biodegradable”. These words conjure up images of greenery, Earth Day, and mild soap. Problem is, too often these words alone are used to label something as “good”. Bread may be “All Natural”, but what does that mean? High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) comes from corn, so is it natural? A rotten apple may be organic, but that doesn’t mean I want to eat it! And my favorite, to paraphrase my dad quoting a friend of his: “Horse shit is biodegradable, but that doesn’t mean I want it in my drinking water!” I mean, uranium is “all natural”, people! So’s lead, cyanide, and urine!

No free passes! If you are an individual or organization pushing for something simply because it’s “organic”, do a little research on what that entails other than twice the price in the supermarket.
