To be, or not to be? That is the question—
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And, by opposing, end them? To die, to sleep—
No more—and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural...

If there's one reason it irritates me, it's that it feeds the misconception that you have to buy overpriced, organic food in order to eat healthy.
Hence, the belief that poor families can't afford to eat healthy.
