"If you're eating organic turkey this weekend, savour it, because by next Thanksgiving it may be easier to buy crack cocaine in Ontario than a drug-free bird." -- The big industrial thinking of the regulators sees no conflict between using industrial methods and being organic. Presumably this is becuase they view "organic" as about inputs rather than as a holistic concept. Parallels with the "open-core" debate are striking.

See how far "organic" has been hijacked by the food industry, to the point that the popular view of 'organic' ignores its holistic vision and just views it as a health fad. This is the fate of the term "open source" if we can't get OSI rebooted. As for the survey, this quote positions it nicely: "Pesticides were specifically excluded from the scope of this work. This is because our position on the safety of pesticides is already clear: pesticides are rigorously assessed and their residues are closely monitored. Because of this the use of pesticides in either organic or conventional food production does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health and helps to ensure a plentiful supply of food all year round."

Health-wise I probably agree with this. I'm very sad to see a government minister ignoring the environmental impact though - this is hardly the thinking of a progressive mind.

Hey! Horizon milk and Silk soy are the ones I buy when I am in the US. Guess I'll need to rethink.
