Stop brainwashing me IAB!
Just a thought...
Gah! Now the word produce has lost all meaning.I`ve heard and said the word too much.
That drove me nuts. This video was just put here to F with my head. WHY?
Also, where the hell was the blind taste test? Nowhere? Another failure of a title here on IAB.
Actually he`s a food writer for the magazine "The Atlantic", So he`s paid by them.
The link to the full article is on the next to last page of the comments.
from and asda customer. ok, i dont choose to shop at asda, i don`t own my own car and the local supermarket happens to be an asda and happens to only be about 1.5 miles away.
^ what I was going to say. Prahduce.
If everyone on earth started eating "organic" food, there would be a massive shortage and a majority of people would starve as the cultivation of such food is so much more scarce.
Not to mention that it is more than double in price. It is a scam, don`t buy it. Don`t be stupid, buy science food that is meant to keep you healthy.
Call it fruits and vegetables. What does "produce" even mean? I`m leaving this thread now, a little bit dumber than when I entered it. And I hate that.
The only thing they do differently is charge 10x more because they use manure once. Oh well, its good for the farmers :P
secondly, walmart is not a grocery store in any shape or form, its a big box store that realized they can rip more people off by including all shopping into one place after seeing the success of Costco...I don`t trust any "food" store that also carries guns, car batteries, fertilizer, and will do your nails on the way out.
not to mention I have been to too many wal-marts where I smelled rotting meat in the food sections as well as birds eating the meat (creepy)
I`m not sure exactly what you are referring to. I suppose you mean "the body"?? If so, I am not defending one over the other. I sometimes purchase organic, but more often just purchase regular groceries. I take BCAA`s and Enzymes to help break down what the foods and my digestive system fail to do on their own. You should look into it.
It`s a lot more entertaining too.
So in the end, you can`t win. No matter what you do you`re still screwing the earth.
Natural foods like apples have their own natural enzymes which help break itself down or biodegrade. Thus by eating an organic product you will digest more of that product and it will be healthier for you. A non-organic product will not have the natural enzymes and therefore you are not giving your body near what it should be getting.
"As I had been in my own kitchen, the tasters were surprised when the results were unblinded at the end of the meal and they learned that in a number of instances they had adamantly preferred Walmart produce. And they weren’t entirely happy."
that and the way he pronounces produce totaly discredit everything he says.
which is actually pointless anyway. Yea, wal-mart has fruits and vegatables. Yea, and they aren`t in cans.
Anyway, for my meaningless comment: As soon as I saw the buckets and the hanging pictures I thought "Tesco`s". Then he agreed.
pra-pah-gahn-dah about prah-duce
He seems to have a fairly extensive knowledge of supermarkets (who notices style differences of British supermarkets?).
I`m wondering if that had anything to do with WalMart taking over ASDA back in the day...
