Does organic food turn people into jerks?
No, seriously! "Wholesome Foods and Wholesome Morals? Organic Foods Reduce Prosocial Behavior and Harshen Moral Judgments" - Victor Ganata
Seems like a pretty bogus setup for the study. Although there may well be something to the idea that people with a need to feel self-righteous may be attracted to eating foods marketed as organic. But it's not eating the organic foods that makes them self-righteous, which is how these things are phrasing it. Shit, once upon a time all food was organic - was EVERYONE a jerk then? - Spidra Webster
The headline may be misleading, but I think you'd probably observe the same findings about anything that makes people feel morally superior. - Victor Ganata
People get that sniffy about single malt whisky, beer, wine, cars, OSes, etc. - Spidra Webster
I would like to imagine there's some reason the Whole Foods founder is a jerk... - Andrew C (✔)
