“Does organic food turn people into jerks?” asks Diane Mapes at MSNBC. “Study Suggests that Eating Organic Foods Contributes to Moral Depravity,” elaborates Doug Barry at Jezebel.

“Wholesome Foods and Wholesome Morals? Organic Foods Reduce Prosocial Behavior and Harshen Moral Judgments,” Kendall J. Eskine, Social Psychological and Personality Science (abstract)

The moral? “Stop organics, become a better person,” says Tom Jacobs at Pacific Standard.
