First of all, I would like to say that I enjoy your podcast. I love the idea of talking about 4 things that we can be grateful for in our lives. However, this episode pushed a few buttons with me. My family farms and runs a ranch in North Dakota. I feel your comments on organic foods and Dr Oz comments are misleading and are extremely hurtful to the ag community as a whole. Here is a link I think you should consider reviewing concerning the dirty dozen and the clean 15... https://www.produceretailer.com/article/news-article/2019-dirty-dozen-and-clean-15-lists-released I support all areas of the ag community. We should embrace organic, non organic, conventional farming, and strive to find new ways to help feed a growing world. But misinformation about nutritional value in these areas, the harmfulness of pesticides and gmos, and everything have real world consequences for those that work in the industry.
