At Only Organic, we encounter lots of consumer confusion about the value of organics. Our social media team has found that some of the statements causing the confusion originate in fake accounts posing as concerned independent parties.

These types of comments can quickly flood a post with talking points provided by sites that are funded by or colluding with biotech, Big Ag or Big Food. This leads to confusion about food supply facts and the decision to choose organic, and that is the goal of the program.

The nonprofit U.S. Right To Know recently discovered Let Nothing Go after it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Let Nothing Go seeks to discredit anti-pesticide efforts using operatives paid for by the biotech company Monsanto.
