    Ketchup chips! :D

  3. clowntrooper61 says:

    Could you do a video about GMO foods and whether they are good for you

  4. Jordan Rimon says:

    This guy (Mitch Moffit) has an uncle who happens to be my science teacher.

  5. Abe Castellanos says:

    Science disagrees with my mis-informed opinion, so the only explanation is a conspiracy theory!

  6. David's says:

    What about the Rodale Institute 30 year study on organic farming? It concluded that organic farming yields can be bigger than conventional ones and are far better for the environment. I think we have to take into account that not every scientific paper is unbiased. There are labs and scientists funded by companies like Monsanto. As long as we don't compare and analyze these studies we can't state a true conclusion about what is safer. At least I read many studies (I'm working on my thesis on this subject) and far too many state the advantages of Agroecological and organic farming over conventional ones.

  7. Ben Stainer says:

    What would happen if you sat down your whole life? Please make a video on it.

  8. Badly Drawn Turtle says:

    1. Last time I checked, organic farming and crop rotation are not the same thing, so conflating the two seems disingenuous.
    2. If those raised levels are below clinical significance, that literally means that they aren't worth mentioning; so why bring it up at all?
    It seems to me that those where the only two points in favor of organic farming, and they both flunk out. So yes, the science says non-organic farming is better. Much better.

  9. Megan Walters says:

    I go on a diet of half% Organic and half% is not is that a good diet/ Good for the environment Btw ASAP SCIENCE YOU'VE DONE IT AGAIN I LOVE YOUR EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS!!!!!!!!1

  10. Mybolily says:

    Why do I become obsessed over something and how do I over come it?

  11. reece says:

    Growing up a conventional farmer I have been brainwashed basically to think that organic is terrible and that its overpriced

  12. Nate Anonymous says:

    Is breathing bad for you?

  13. Esteban Rodriguez-Alverio says:

    What does conventional mean, though? Is that GMOs? Monsanto? I think a video breaking that down would be helpful for this conversation.

  14. Thedarklord14m Watkins says:

    I am a huge fan of you channel, but I think you need to do more research on this topic as many of the facts you presented are wrong. I personally eat %100 organic and am proud of it. At the end you said I ignored the science; I am a scientist! Who sent you? MONSANTO?!

  15. Screwg oogle says:

    Why did you put in LDL increase with the positive effects from organic foods? LDL is a bad cholesterol. I'm not sure if you interpreted that wrong or (more likely) you meant to say it has a decrease of LDL which is as positive effect.

    ND VE PQP! kkkkkk

  17. Michelle Wanha says:

    So upset about the free range chicken.

  18. DSgir says:

    Watching this with a degree in agriculture and experience working in food production this video disappoint's me and pitchforks time raises the question of whether this video was sponsored by well meaning lobbies…

  19. TheDtrane says:

    Exercise?? What is this black magic?

  20. Abigail Rivera says:

    love the drawings cant wait to figure out if most foods aren't good for me ;)
