what about organic proteins
Stephanie Harris (7 days ago)
I’m starting to think a lot of people have forgotten what organic really means: “relating to or denoting compounds containing carbon (other than simple binary compounds and salts) and chiefly or ultimately of BIOLOGICAL ORIGIN.” So when I saw the title, I immediately thought, “Isn’t that all food?!?” For real though people, if you’re that concerned about pesticides & other chemicals, start a garden if you can. Raise chickens in your backyard. Do what you can, because even though a company says it’s “organic” *cough pesticide/herbicide free cough*, it doesn’t meant it’s true. Also, you know what else is organic? Hemlock. You’re welcome.

Hi everyone, all the food out there is contaminated because it has heavy metal toxins, etc. Also our water as well. Get a good filter, start your own garden or join a community garden, or go to your local farmers market. there's also a bunch of nano tech in the food as well so if I were you I'd listen to this now, do yourself a big favor to get them out of your body, and also detox as well.

Men should stick to organic 100% because gmo’s lower testosterone, so does soy(protein,soybean oil etc) so buy none soy condiments and dressings. Drop gmo’s , soy and get outside and use muscle in sport/exercise or exploration and your testosterone will improve. The grass fed meats is bullshit because there’s no regulation that the grass has to be any certain way. But at least grass fed means the cow wasn’t pumped full of soy and grain.

Farmers produce record crops almost every year because they take great pride in taking care of their soils if they did not they would not be setting new yield records almost every year. Organic growers use many harmful pesticides much more harmful than Glyphosate. So you can not answer a single simple question that I have asked? Like I said your knowledge on this subject is ZERO. "The World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidence has come to the same conclusion: consuming foods containing ingredients derived from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants modified by conventional plant improvement techniques." –American Association for the Advancement of Science Here is another country using the safest of all herbicides Glyphosate. Glyphosate is used all over the world because of its pure safety. Is the reason you want farmers to go back to using more and more harmful pesticides because you own a lot of stock in pesticide companies? That has to be it you benefit financially when farmers use more and more harmful pesticides. Shame on you John Doe. https://geneticliteracyproject.org/2017/05/01/canadas-health-regulator-reaffirms-glyphosate-herbicide-neither-genotoxic-carcinogenic/

David Adcock You site news that is usually biased and govt as both aren’t known to be crooked. The news is ok but telling me about nutrition from usual salesmen and market driven areas is suspect. My first link was straight from EPA, EPA supposedly makes sure (👎) the Environment is safe not what people are going to consume. Farmers used to not use anything but hard work to grow stuff. And I’m tired of hearing from gmo guys soil isn’t depleted, yes it I’ve have family in WI and CA (against my better judgement) and they all say the soil getting worse year after year plus there’s articles, science, and the supposed EPA to protect it from getting worse. https://www.nytimes.com/1987/08/23/us/farming-without-chemicals-age-old-technologies-becoming-state-of-art.html, how actually farming. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss/ There’s still people who farm old school. https://www.ecowatch.com/certified-naturally-grown-a-new-way-to-identify-pesticide-free-non-gmo-1882022915.html https://responsibletechnology.org/gmo-education/health-risks/ As for your questions, honestly I haven’t read any of you long posts after your insults. So there. You wasted enough of my time, you’re biased, you’re rude and shit goes over your head way to easy. Ok, we’re done no matter what you post. You believe your sources I’ll believe mine and my life. Take care
David Adcock (2 months ago)
I am sorry but your link is false Organic growers use many many harmful pesticides. Would you like to see their approved list'? Organic farming is just another old farming method that causes terrible soil erosion. Remember how the Mississippi Delta was created? Are you telling me you could not answer a single simple question that I have asked. Are you really this ignorant on this subject? I will provide you with more links of all countries now using glyphosate because of its pure safety. Why do you want farmers to go back to using more and more harmful pesticides when the ones we use with gmo technology crops are even safer than many of the pesticides organic growers use? You really really need to get an education on this subject and stop with your lies and misinformation that you spread. Here is a video that may help you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvFD6DRn0Cg&sns=em

Your first link proves the safety of Glyphosate. Your second link is false Glyphosate is use all over the world because of its proven safety.

Out of the many many many many herbicides that a farmer could choose to use on his gmo technology crops can you name one that is safer than Glyphosate? Is Glyphosate the only word you know?

Only organic pesticides are doused with unlimited amounts. Glyphosate like all other pesticides not use in organic farming is applied a precision rates with precision equipment 3 to 4 months before harvest. Try to get an education on this subject before spewing out your ignorance redrum.

"What gets overlooked by [activist] groups are the reports from the USDA itself that show that even organic foods have pesticide residues on them — some are synthetic pesticides and some, like Spinosad, are ones approved for organic uses.

Some nimrod here tried to get away with that classic conspiracy theory trash about "long term effects" of non-organic foods. What monitoring for "long term effects" is done on organic foods? Heirloom foods? Conventional farming products? A new variety or hybrid developed in someone's truck garden? THEY PUT IT ON THE SHELVES AND START SELLING IT IMMEDIATELY!!!! The safety testing is whether or not someone dies during the first week of marketing. Compare that to GMOs which are 100% tested before submittal to the FDA for approval. Now which category of foods is more risky?

@Popeye Gordon I'm sorry, is that an argument? You could perhaps tell me why the sources he uses are reliable, or tell me how they are not shills for capitalist agri-biz.

Your last link was about copper sulfate and contained a one-sentence comparison of the _mass_ (!?) of one type of fungicide application to another and no data directly comparing the stress put on the environment by organic and non-organic farming. The two recent links that work are blog posts about profitability and the UN. I presume they are equally irrelevant. If you don't have an answer to the original question, then stop responding with irrelevant nonsense. My question is for the video producers. How does organic farming put greater stress on the natural environment? And how do you know?

This video is misleading. You are really cherrypicking here, and failing to mention the other side of the story. Many chemicals used in foods are known to have negative long term affects and some are quite dangerous. And no shit organic crop yields are lower, although that doesn't have anything to do with how healthy they are for you. I would say That synthetic chemicals are putting more strain on the environment than the increased space you need to grow them. And of course organic food isn't going to have more nutrients in it, the whole point is that eating organic food isn't going to slowly poison you.

Popeye Gordon (3 months ago)
Nathan still posts unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. What long term effects? Be specific, name the ingredients and the effects as documented by unbiased qualified doctors or peer reviewed studies and NOT Youtube quacks. List most of those "lot of chemicals" you mentioned or be called out as a malicious liar with hostile intent. And no, mercury or lead ingredients used 100 years ago does not count. Fear mongering really sucks. It damages the incomes of farmers, loses American jobs and causes really bad karma as seen by a million very nasty hateful comments here on Youtube under anti-science quack and fake news videos. Stop the lies based on an arbitrary predicted but completely non-existent theoretical situation.
Nathan Temple (3 months ago)
Considering that gmo food has only been marketed for around 25 years, I would say there isn't much long term research on the affects of it either. Also a lot of chemicals that have been used to produce food in the past have been found to cause long term affects, some of which we are only now finding out. Obviously not all chemicals are bad, and likewise not all organic food is good, but there's also a lot that hasn't been discovered yet.
Popeye Gordon (3 months ago)

Ok Im Going to cut through the b.s. for you. Contrary to what you have been told. Most meats, vegetables and fruits are organic. They just are not marketed as such. The story of hormone injected meats is in reality very slim. Here is how more then 99% of meat goes from birth to table. Born, taken to auction and sold. Raised from buyer until ready for market. Goes to auction and meat packers buy. Goes to meat packers " farm" or plants same thing. There up to a couple days Butchered at plant halved or quarter. At this point it goes a couple different ways 1) sent to store and cut up into different cuts, such as chops, steaks, hamburger and so on. 1) you buy in store packaging, take home and cook. 2) stays at plant and is processed, which means cut up, into cuts. Labeled as company xyz. One plant can have multible companies it packages for. 2) sent to store. You buy take home and cook. Never was any hormone used Very rarely a BIG farm / ranch will use hormone to cheat the system. You have a higher chance of a " organic farmers " selling a sick animal then this. Now for fruit and vegetables. No matter who grows ferterlizer is used as is pesticide and insecticides. To not do this you have small crops sometime no crop yields. And natural fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides are CHEAPER then synthetic. BTW FYI salt water is used as an insecticide. This is what the crop duster by me uses. Food is grown, taken to coop. Coop sells Some go strait to store some goes to packing plants Again most packing plants package for multible companies. You could have libbys packed on Monday, Buy Rite, Tuesday, DELL Wednesday, and so on. So even your generics are packed at same place sometime even same time as name brands. Packing plant to store warehouse Werehouse to store Store to table. The only difference here is Big farms don't use coop, it goes strait to thier packers. And those packers also buy from coops. The only time synthetic is cheaper is when bought in very large quantities. Look for brand names that own litterly counties of farmland. And even then synthetic may not be used. Now let's talk milk. Ok milk is a different story. If you buy milk with vitamin D, that is an additive. Milk does not naturally have vit d. BTW 10 minutes of sun gives you all the vitamin D a person needs. So if you see organic milk with vitamin D, it isnt organic. They just lied to you. If you really want the safest food best choose is raise it yourself. Next is pay someone to raise it for you. ( look up FFA chapters, help a student out If need be) Next choose is know the farmer and buy direct from them. (Again FFA chapter are an easy way to find student farmers)

There was nothing wrong with the video besides the girl giving the presentation could not talk plain and was like she had a mouth full of mush. GMO technology is about farmers like me using much much less pesticides and much much safer pesticides with the pesticides even safer than many of the pesticides that Organic growers use. The CBS Evening News had a piece 8-30-2017 on how gmo technology was being use to cure some cancers. They showed exactly how is being done and they are also working on other cancers trying to cure them. Man has been breeding plants in all different ways for thousands of years to help benefit mankind. 500 years ago a carrot was pure white. GMO technology is use in many things to better the world. Almost all Insulin used today by diabetics is GMO insulin. GMO rennet has been used for decades to make cheese. The cheese making enzyme breaks down proteins and separates them from whey. Golden Rice to benefit vitamin A-deficient children. & BT CORN AND COTTON. GMO proteins include blood- clotting factors to help Hemophiliacs, the hepatitis B vaccine, thyroid hormones, laundry detergent enzymes, and many synthetically produced amino acids used in nutritional supplements. There are many many many more benefits of GMO technologies. We all should give thanks to GOD for giving us the wisdom of GMO and stand up to those that tell lies about GOD's blessings trying to play GOD themselves trying to take away his blessings. http://www.cbs.com/shows/cbs_evening_news/video/unavz0ldRHLRSnhW_KZvIifswdeSBS9C/fda-approves-brand-new-way-to-treat-leukemia/

The other, very serious potential problem with Organic junk is the many varieties of parasites that chemicals kill but survive the Organic process. If you should be one of the unfortunate ones, you could end up with one of the more nasty varieties of these parasites that work themselves into your brain and cause anywhere from permanent brain damage to death. I would much rather take my chances with the chemicals than the risks that the chemicals remove

If you are talking about American organic foods, then everything you've said is true. If you're referring to European organic farming, then things look very, very different ;)

"natural is not always better" - Well, duh, ... I bet if someone sold *organic amanita* people would actually buy and eat it.... - It's organic right? Gotta be healthy! --- where tf did this thinking originate.... as if everything was healthy before we made synthetic stuff...

But LDL cholesterol is bad.... and in terms of the bacteria there is a thing called normal flora. E.coli is normal flora in the intestines they are mostly opportunistic meaning that under normal circumstances the risk of E.coli infection from ingestion is rather low unless you are immunocompromised. Still great vid though. Love watching this channel.

It all depends on the definition of organic. This video addresses only one definition of organic (the government's definition), but many people are taking away that the entire concept of organic agriculture is either bad or not necessarily good. The term, organic, when referring to agriculture, is subjective. It could be defined as within the parameters of sustainable permaculture or simply the omission of synthetic substances. Omitting various substances is not enough for sustainability and health safety.

Im sorry but this video is extremely misleading. He didn't mention anything about GMOs and that most 1st worked countries have BANNED them. I dont want my food soaked in round-up before I eat it. He is clearly referring to low quality organic foods when he says they use worse chemicals. True farmers market organic foods much more nutritious and have much less bullshit in them. Im sorry but this has to be a paid advertisement from the food industry, asapscience got bribed people.

David Adcock "Round up is the safest herbicide farmers have ever used" "the s a f e s t" What alternate reality do you live in man?? What are you gonna tell us next, water is dry?

David Adcock im really not sure where you are getting your info but 38 major counties have banned GMOs including almost all of Europe. Theres a lot more to organic food then just what pesticide they use (like this video is trying to suggest). And the biggest difference is the meat and poultry industry. Animals have much worse quality meat and eggs when raised on GMO corn. Cows are not even supposed to be eating corn to begin with, let alone it being GMO. Grass fed beef is much better for you. Commercial chickens are treated extremely harsh, organic free range chickens get to roam around and eat a much healthier diet and in result their eggs are 3x more nutritious. And thats not including the antibiotics, growth hormones, and other nasty things they inject in those pour animals. Lastly the preservatives, the artificial sweeteners and the high fructose corn syrup that almost every non-organic food item has in it are all terrible for you. Please do not listen to a video that clearly as bias as possible and I am 100% this is a paid video because the food industry is really good at using popular resources to further their agenda. Please inform yourself have a nice day.

Sorry Dylan but gmo technology crops are not soaked in Roundup. GMO technology crops are grown all over the world and not been ban. Many of the pesticides organic growers use are more harmful than Roundup. Roundup is the safest herbicide farmers ave ever used. Why do you want farmers to go back to using more and more harmful pesticides?

Really good video! Another interesting aspect when it comes to organize vs. Conventional plant agriculture is the amount of tillages and soil cultivation occurring, due to the restriction of weed controlling substances like glyphosate, more tilling is required for weed control which ultimately strips land of nutrients and leads to more things such as soil erosion. Everything varies from farming practice to practice but it’s a cool thought worth looking into! :)

The thing about the "free range"... Wow that's messed up. Why do we eat depressed chickens. Let's own a chicken and go vegan. Come at me.
