Found this today. Doesn't. Surprise me at at all.
Knowing your farmer will never go out of style.
all had wonderfully idealistic and admirable beginnings but once people wanted the products that were labeled as such and business found the profit in it the original meaning was corrupted.

I generally perfer to be a-political, but thought you aught to know I investigated one of the chemicals listed in the article. Aparently the article miss spelled it slightly. Docosahexzenoic acid algae oil, really spelled docosahexaenoic acid algae oil, is actually appears to be a fancy word for fish oil.
Docosahexzenoic acid is more commonly listed as DHA on food labels. It is a long chain omega-3 fatty acid, and frequently found in fish oil supplemets. Docosahexzenoic acid algae oil is this fatty acid derived from algae, not fish.
I have no idea why the author would object to DHA from algae being listed as organic, assuming the algae were raised under organic guidelines. Anyone? I also do not understand the objection to carrageenan, which, as the author states, is derived from seaweed. The article says it is linked to gastrointestinal inflammation, but does that have anything to do with a food being "organic"? If I raise stinging nettles without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, wouldn't they qualify as "organic", even though they cause skin inflammation?
Just go for whole local organic foods not processed even if its organic and dont worry about it.
Petitions were able to stop the USDA from almost immediately wanting to add sewer sludge, GMO's and irradiation as acceptable for organic growers.
of course it is all about the money..that is the most unsustainable part of our world...human greed...the root source of pretty much all our problems...
My opinion is that fraud, coercion, violence, monopolies, abuse, bribery, and a government that allows all of the above to go on without being prosecuted are some of the bigger sources of our problems, not the desire to acquire property through honest commerce where money is the value assigned to a specific product by the willing purchaser.
Is someone who works hard to grow healthy food to sell for the highest price customers are willing to pay so he can make lots of money is doing wrong to anyone by his greed? Without coercion who is the victim? If it is not to my standards I will not buy it. If it is claimed to be to some standard but is not, that is fraud. And I believe when we get down to it we would probably agree on many things, but I respectfully disagree with your assertion.
