Well it's deal with pesticides in/on your foods, or not eat because the bugs have destroyed the crops. Or pay twice the price for organic food which may or may not provide any advantage.

Just the entire premise of the book, and the since-disproven data from the 60s and 80s that he bases the premise on.
Because bullshit is bullshit whether I read it or not. Would you have to read a book by a creationist or flat-earth nutter to know that the ideas within it are bunk?
