Washington: Organic foods may make you less likely to show kindness to others, a new study has revealed.Using organic products makes people feel more secure about themselves, which reduces their desire to be altruistic, assistant professor of psychology at Loyola University Dr Kendall Eskine said."Organic foods, like other green products, seem to help people affirm their moral identities, thus generating counterintuitive behaviours," Eskine said.Eskine`s research is the first to demonstrate that exposure to organic foods can influence moral thinking and doing.The study used 62 students in three groups. One was given pictures of organic produce, another images of ice cream, cookies, chocolate and brownies, and a control group pictures of porridge, rice, mustard and beans.
