Study Suggests Eating Organic Food Can Make People Smug, Judgmental

Going organic may make you healthier, but could it make you smug and judgmental as well? That's what a new study suggests, The Week magazine reports those who buy and eat organic food often look down on others and let them know about it. They cited Loyola University psychology professor and study author Kendall Eskine as attributing this to "moral licensing," which is when people who do something they see as good begin to feel self-righteous and also feel like they have permission to act less "good" later on. Have you found in your own life that people who eat very healthy or organic food can tend to be smug or judgmental about others?
