      Here for this. A take on some of the real cost when someone claims organic isn't that much better for you. Sure, maybe not at the end of the foodchain, but it sure makes a difference for workers who don't have to be bathed in chemicals in the fields. Great take.

      This topic comes up around meat and dairy, too, where there seems to be an endless back and forth in food, health, and women’s magazines about whether these products are “good for you.” Occasionally, one will wonder whether they’re good for the environment. Almost no one includes the lives (and illnesses and deaths) of factory farm and meatpacking workers when considering where these products ought to fit in our diets.
