Garbage In, Garbage Out

I've always wondered -- and I suspect we'll never know -- what completely organic food (free of excessive human tinkering, whatever that means) would taste like. Will we die from bacteria? Will it taste nastier? Or do additives actually make us more ornery?

Cut us open and analyze our DNA, and I'm sure all those additives, dyes, preservatives, and hormones are all intertwined in our double helices. Well, good to know that the USDA has made "organic" official. I guess.

find the nearest blackberry bush and you'll know what completely organic food tastes like. Or tag along with Wild Man Steve Brill.

I remember reading -- and confirmed just now -- that one of the most toxic places to live is near a crematorium. All the shit in our own bodies (e.g., the mercury in our fillings) is, as it turns out, no good for anyone else, either, when burned up and streamed down.
