Pesticides are made to kill things. People who don’t want to eat pesticides often choose organic foods to avoid them. But does that really make sense?

Many of those promoting that perception are obviously interested in maintaining public confidence in the existing food system, including ingredient lists dominated by GM corn and soy staples and grocery stores made possible by heavy applications of pesticides.
