I must say that I appreciated this article as well, not just for the angle of "organic" as it relates to wine but organics in general. I'm a former nutrition major myself, and as a broke college student, the only time I ever really find myself eating anything organic is if I like the taste of the product better than its conventional counterpart and/or it has a better nutritional profile. I do adore a Cinnamon Toast Crunch knock-off with 3 grams of fiber in 110 calories and only 8 grams of sugar. But I digress.
As victims of health media, we hear about things like "the dirty dozen" (the 12 produce items with the most pesticides) and hormones and antibiotics in our dairy and meat supply, and it's often hard for us consumers to break down all of that information and decipher what's a bunch of nonsense versus what's valid. As someone else said, there are many issues of importance that most of us just do not have the time to investigate.
Fortunately (IMO), there are people like you out there who are able to intellectually whack us on our heads and make us think of things from a different perspective. So thank you for a refreshing point of view.

DDT would save tens of millions of lives on the continent of Africa, eradicate malaria and usher in a new age of prosperity to the sub-saharan countries. That apparently is not as important as propaganda.
Don't believe the hype.
