A while back, I posted Penn & Teller’s video busting some organic food myths. A reader recently sent me the full episode. It’s fairly funny, entertaining, and also educational, so I figured I should share it.
Oh — and don’t mind the language.
EDIT: Unfortunately, it appears the full version of the episode was removed. While that’s a bummer, because it really was a good episode to watch, I’ve posted the alternative, shorter version of the show. Don’t worry, it is just as enjoyable!

When I try to start video it says "video does not exist".

I actually thought the "organic" couple were actors in a Portlandia type skit, but they are for real.I don't blame the big food companies for making a product those poor fools want. After all, it's satisfying a market demand like anything else. But claims about superior health or environment relative to conventional foods cross an ethical line. A diet with more vegetables and fruits is good – period. It is irrelevant for health reasons if organic or not, but definitely very relevant to profit margins and market share of organic producers and sellers.
