    Of course not!

    It’s just another way the eco-freaks are going after your wallet. Don’t tell me you haven’t seen the ridiculous difference between regular and “organic” stuff.

    Here are five ways it does not.

    Does organic mean toxin free? (One naturally-derived substance kills bees. Without bees, crops die.)

    Does organic mean local? (only about one percent of U.S. farmland is organic)

    Does organic mean grown on a small, diversified farm?

    Does Organic Mean Livestock Roam Free and Forage on Grass?

    Does Organic Mean Topsoil is Restored?

    No to all of the above. Enjoy getting our your wallet?
