Or they have noticed what snake oil bullshit 'organic' is.

Just another of your pathetic little fantasys.

Or they dont buy the snake oil bullshit that 'organic' involves.

Pathetic, really.

No one does. What some care about its the utterly
mindless snake oil bullshit that the 'organics' spew.

Pathetic, really.

Some do, most dont.

It explains why so many buy the 'organic' bullshit. And religion in spades.

Wrong, as always.

No it doesnt.

Thanks for that completely superfluous proof that you have
never ever had a ****ing clue about anything at all, ever.

Your problem.

Pig ignorant lie.

Thats considered when setting the safe levels allowed in fat, stupid.

Or tell fools like you to take a long run off a short pier.
