Story at-a-glance -

  • Fake organics abound, and include organic eggs laid by hens cooped up in gigantic factory farms, and organic beef and milk from cows raised under anything but humane, pastured conditions
  • Hydroponic vegetables grown under artificial lighting in conventional coconut waste or ground up plastic can now gain organic certification
  • Plants grown without soil rich in organic matter and microbial life produces food without the nutrients and microbes we require for good health
  • The USDA organic label has become increasingly watered down over the years. With the inclusion of hydroponics in the organic standards, it’s at risk of becoming altogether moot
  • Take action by refusing to buy organic foods raised in factory farms or grown without soil
  • Sign the Cornucopia Institute’s proxy letter to CEOs at national grocery chains known to sell fake organics
