Hi Idea Channel,
  Despite all the words about organic food, you never mentioned the reason why I (and most of the people I know) eat organic food: A lack of trust in the traditional food system.

-I don't trust the safety of genetically modified seeds (Hi Monsanto!)
-I don't trust the studies that are often funded directly by groups with conflicts of interest
-I don't trust the studies conducted by universities who have taken tons of endowment money from these same companies
-I don't trust the factories that have lobbied to make it illegal to film on their grounds

The list goes on and on. Reducing the number of people who handle my food, in my eyes, reduces the number of people that could be poisoning me. The organic farmer at the local farmers market is one of the few people left who I haven't caught deliberately lying to my face about my food so far. Plus I know his name. He's a real person, so I can actually talk to the guy who yanks my food out of the ground instead of some call center worker with a script and an ingredients list.

Is the organic farmer lying to me? Maybe. There's a 50/50 chance that the organic farmers are lying to me, but these other industries have already proven to me that they lie to me with gusto at every chance presented to them. They would toss me into the sausage grinder along with the sick livestock if given half a chance.

So I'll take my chances with the local farmer. (His name is Bill BTW)

This has a bit of a DMB feel to it.
