The basis for the post is a highly scientific Loyola University study that sampled 60 people and found that those shown images of organic food were more judgmental and less altruistic(read jerks) than those shown images of comfort food. The author of the study, Kendall Eskine, concludes that this has implications for eating organic food saying that he was surprised by the study's results, "You'd think eating organic would make you feel elevated and want to pay it forward."
