The Real Cost

The chemical food you buy at the supermarket looks cheaper than organic, but then you have to realize that you pay another bill on that food when you pay your taxes and that second bill goes to the farm subsidies.  That second installment is about the same as the first installment, so if you compare the real price of our highly processed and chemically grown food, it’s double the shelf price; organic food is rarely double the price of chemical food.  Plus there are other hidden costs:  We taxpayers end up paying to clean up the water and the air from those chemicals and chemical spills, and the consumer also pays more in healthcare costs for those eating chemically treated food.
