False. Organic labeling means adherence to specific USDA requirements.

Natural means bubkis.

Eh, they both have meaning, it's just connotative, not denotative. It just tells you which products to pick up off the shelf for further investigation, not which products to buy.

But that's the whole point. The fact that the USDA standards permit inorganic compounds to be labeled as "organic" destroys the credibility of the entire program.

What's next, USDA rules which allow wood pulp to be labeled as "beef"?

They don't?

"The USDA, which regulates meats, has set a limit of 3.5% on the use of cellulose, since fiber in meat products cannot be recognized nutritionally."

15 Food Companies That Serve You 'Wood' - TheStreet

"In the United States, strict oversight and labeling laws ensure all ground beef sold is 100% beef."

Well, a slight play on words but at least the meat in the package is now beef.

I kind of have an issue with articles like that, which imply that certain ingredients are dangerous, harmful or otherwise scary simply because they originate from some unexpected source (eg: stuff that comes from beaver anuses or insects) or have an alternate use outside the food industry (eg: in the production of yoga mats.)

Even the most die-hard organic / naturalist / etc., cook uses bomb-making materials and corrosive industrial solvents every day in their wholesome, nutritious cooking. They just use different words for them, like "salt" and "water."

Just look at the regulations for bottled water. They can get away with selling bottled water with naturally occurring arsenic levels that would otherwise cause a shut down of any municipal water supply with similar readings.

Yes, the article would imply a gigantic market for the dried perineal glands of beavers and I can't remember ever seeing shells of desert beetles listed on the commodities markets. How would one go about harvesting desert beetles in such a magnitude for it to be profitable??

The market consumption of castoreum in its natural form (from beaver ***-glands) is relatively small, as modern food and beverage production lines tend to use synthetic forms as opposed to the genuine article. Economies of scale, and whatnot.

I'm not sure about the desert beetles, but I'd think that insects in general would be relatively easy to farm at an industrial scale.

From the link; "Research conducted by award-winning U.S. scientist Nathan Zohner concluded that roughly 86 percent of the population supports a ban on dihydrogen monoxide."

As if 86% of the population actually had heard of it and knows wtf it is... Sounds like nasty **** anyway.

For that matter, DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) is organic! Specificaly, it is C14H9Cl5.

Hemlock is all natural and when grown organically is wonderful in tea.

Thanks. I just wanted to verify before I bought this "5 speed".
